Our latest collaboration with Brooklyn’s own Affinity Cycles has yielded one hell of a looker.
You might recall our team edition Affinity Anthem with rally livery masterfully painted by Ben Falcon of Horse Cycles. This time around, we are paying homage to the Baja Racing color concept.
Subtle and classy, yet laid back – reminiscent of a chromatic spectrum procured from a warm day’s sunset.
The Affinity Kissena is a race machine. It’s aero, stiff, light, and everything you would want when you’re looking for a fast bike. It is the most proven aluminum track frameset in the market. The Kissena has taken home dozens of Six-Day, National Championship, and UCI victories. It is constructed from 7000-series aircraft grade aluminum tubing. It’s integrated seat mast provides incredible stability in sprints and strength through corners. Burly rear drop outs and short rear triangle with a seat tube cut out makes for a tight wheel base and an aero short-clearance wheel position.
The Kissena’s intention is to cater to the racer. Whether it be a track race, fixed-gear crit, alleycat… or really anything you can think to throw at it – it will perform. Going back to the roots of the track bike, with the main designation to be a versatile machine.
Our newest acquisition onto the Deluxe squad, Dan Spellman, has got a monster of a road bike that he’ll soon be toting at a road crit near you!
We recently slapped a set of Deluxe Carbon Road Wheels (35mm/45mm) on this baby to tie the race machine together.
The F10 is currently the “fastest bike in the world.” The current Hour Record holder with Sir Bradley Wiggins, time trial World Champion with Kiryenka, and winner of Tour de France 2016 with Chris Froome.

Richard may be new to the shop, but by no means is he new to our level of detail in wheel building. He’s already busted out a couple sets of our Deluxe carbon wheels, and they’re coming out beautifully. Here’s a little slideshow of his work process on this road rear wheel.
We’re humbled beyond words to be working with Giro on helmets. Giro graciously gave us their time and resources to work with us on making helmets for our race team and we couldn’t be more excited about how they came out.
Giro has been innovating and changing the cycling industry for the past 32 years, constantly pushing the boundaries and developing lighter, faster and safer helmets. We chose the Synthe because of its phenomenal ability to have top-tier ventilation and aerodynamics without compromising on weight.
