M.A.S.S. Electric Bike by Philippe Starck and Moustache Bikes

M.A.S.S. Electric Bike by Philippe Starck and Moustache Bikes 3

Philippe Starck‘s Starckbike company and manufacturer Moustache Bikes created the MASS range of electrically assisted bikes, designed and assembled in France.

I wanted the bike to be able to go over all kinds of terrains and especially infinite and poetic territories,” said industrial designer Philippe Starck (who had previously created a motorbike for French motorcycle manufacturer Voxan).

Introducing the All Star models available for sale now: the Mud model with grayscale colours featuring a dual-suspension frame, optimised gears and Shimano XTR brakes perfect for your off-road adventures. On the other hand, designed for urban cycling, Asphalt is available in 25- and 45-kilometre-per-hour versions – for zipping around the city. The third star, Sand, has extra large tyres for better grip on coastal tracks and a rain cover that contains storage pockets. Last but certainly not least, large tyres that offer lift and traction for the light-coloured Snow design, which also has a mono-arm fork for optimum snow evacuation and a fur frame cover that protects the battery from extreme temperatures. And, do note that these bikes all have batteries that provide additional power on top of the pedalling action of the rider.

This is more than a bike, it’s a machine to generate pleasure through hybrid technology that combines muscular effort with the assistance of an electric motor,” says Emmanuel Antonot of Moustache Bikes proudly. “The synergy between man and machine occurs naturally and seamlessly allowing users to enjoy the comfort of a motorised two-wheeler and the agility of a bike.
