Renowned for its high-performance carbon monocoque bicycle wheels, Swiss brand SPENGLE launches its most daring project yet – SPENGLE Gold. A bicycle wheel built with 24ct gold leaf hand laid over the brand’s cutting-edge carbon monocoque, a construction method also used in F1 racing for superior safety and performance record.

Landing today, each SPENGLE Gold will be unique to the rider, built to order, and hand delivered & fitted by SPENGLE. Each wheelset is the result of over 3 months of meticulous and painstaking artistry, priced at €10,000/ £10,000 / $10,000, they are the world’s most expensive cycling wheels, and available to buy now exclusively at: www.spengle.com/collections/.

The bicycle wheel represents a unique visual canvas – kinetic art in its most pure form. Art and sport are both deep passion points and with SPENGLE Gold we saw an opportunity to blend these two worlds’ together. There’s something very compelling in mixing the traditional craftmanship of hand-laid gold leaf with cutting edge materials science, and it has resulted in a visually stunning wheel which will compete at the highest of performance levels and then some. explains Pius Brauchart, CEO at SPENGLE

“All of our wheels are created and constructed at our custom facility at the base of the Tatra mountain range in Slovakia, going through a 30-stage process of structural and performance testing before making it onto the road or trail. Whilst we constantly look to create a product which has a striking aesthetic, pushing the boundaries of performance is of paramount importance and never has this been truer than with the SPENGLE Gold.”

SPENGLE has a long history of carbon monocoque design and build, starting as pioneers in carbon construction in the late 1980s at the birth of the MTB scene. Their recent products have redefined the standards in performance cycling; combining cutting-edge design with a unique aesthetic. 2019 saw a collaboration between SPENGLE and leading UK paint artist Jack Kingston, creating ride-able works of art with unique world class performance design.

The SPENGLE Gold will be premiered at the Kolektif bike fair in Berlin this weekend on the show floor, or you can find out more at www.spengle.com/collections/ and @spenglecarbon.


Established in Austria in the 1980s and based in Switzerland nowadays, their technology has come a long way: the SPENGLE Carbon Monocoque wheel has been continuously refined to reinvent modern bicycle-wheel construction. 32 steel spokes have been the norm since the beginning. The big advantage of carbon, however, is that you can have a virtually unlimited amount of spokes in the form of carbon fibres in the blades. This maintains the wheels’ form and redistributes impact force for a smoother ride.

About Twotone Amsterdam

The roots of Twotone go back in 2007, when Twotone’s founder – Jon Woodroof – cofounded a fixed-gear focused bike shop in Atlanta, GA named No Brakes. His clothes nearly always matched his track bike & he earned the nickname Twotone. Jon cut his teeth on promoting his own shop, the brands they sold, and even suppliers, athletes, and other organisations they partnered with all before Instagram!

Those entrepreneurial roots grew into the hold your line, you'll be fine full-send approach to how we run our business today. A 10-year-old nickname became a Dutch BV in 2014 & Twotone has become THE one-stop-shop for cycling-savvy sales, marketing, and PR across Europe in the USA.
