Specialized Unveils Limited Edition Color Changing Mountain Bike


Specialized just released a collection of bikes and equipment called Torch that includes a rad color-changing S-Works Epic FSR World Cup mountain bike frame. In keeping with US Olympic Committee trademark rules, Specialized isn’t saying this collection has anything to do with the Rio Olympics, but you know…

According to Specialized, the frame (and matching S-Works Evade helmet) is yellow at temperatures below 22°C (about 72°F) and transitions to orange as the temperature rises. My son actually has some toy cars that do the same thing which is a ton of fun at bath time. 🙂

In addition to the helmet and bike frame, the Torch collection also includes a jersey, shoes, muset bags, and bib shorts (anyone remember Hypercolor from the 1990s?). Check out the full Torch collection here.
