Glenmorangie X Renovo Bikes – The Glenmorangie Original Bike

View all 10 Photos

Iconic Scottish distillery Glenmorangie has a penchant for bringing together traditional craftsmanship, innovation, and creativity. The company launched the Beyond the Cask series last year, collaborating with British eyewear brand Finlay & Co on a pair of stylish sunglasses that featured wooden frames. Now, Glenmorangie has partnered with Portland-based Renovo Bikes – the bicycle company that launched the first wooden bikes in 2007 – to create some magic. And make cyclists who love good design happy at the same time.

Introducing Glenmorangie Original, the world’s first bike made from wooden whisky casks. The distillery uses the American oak casks only twice, sending them afterward directly to Portland. There, Renovo handcrafts the hollow frames using 15 staves for each bike. Built one by one, every Glenmorangie Original follows the curves and trapezoidal shape of the whisky staves. Unsurprisingly, the design looks fantastic. Elegant and one of a kind, the bicycle features a flat and wide “Longbow” seat, a 27.2mm seatpost, a long wheelbase for more stability, as well as lightweight and hollow chain stays. Compatible with 28mm-40mm tires, the bike suits various types of terrain, from smooth city streets to unpaved roads.

The launch edition Glenmorangie Original comes with Selle Italia XR Gel Flow Saddle, Vittoria Rubino Pro 700x28mm tires, and Shimano Ultegra 6800 shifting and braking systems. The frame boasts white oak and sapele wood, while the handlebars features Lizard Skins DSP bar tape in contrasting black. If you fell in love with the design, you can order the limited edition bike from the Renovo website. It costs $6950 and with a deposit of $1000 you can reserve a frame and have it within six weeks.
