Smog Bicyclettes X Atelier de l’Armée

View all 9 Photos

Designed as a collaboration between Smog Bicyclettes and Atelier de l’Armée, this limited edition bike series outfits Smog Bicyclettes frames with vintage military backpacks and roll kits. Each fixed gear bike is hand-painted in a Swedish army camouflage pattern and finished with rich details such as the Tibaut Malet handlebar and brown leather Brooks saddle. Integrated into the design, the backpack and roll kits are made of leather and fabric upcycled from a 1950s French army duffel bag. Additionally, each bike comes with a spare trouser strap made from a French militia rifle sling.
