Le Flâneur d’Hermès

Steely steed.

View Entire Article

La maison Hermès is no stranger to saddles and steeds, with Saut Hermès having just concluded its fifth edition this past March. It is only natural then that the equine-inspired French fashion house utilized its considerable construction skills when the time came to saddle up for a more leisurely ride. Le Flâneur d’Hermès is a classic unisex city bike conceptualized by the house for those who care to wander in style. Taurillon leather seating and grips complement a charcoal carbon fibre frame equipped with eight gears and fixed lights at the front and rear. Reigns were abandoned in favour of hydraulic disc brakes, and a belt-driven transmission allows riders to change speeds when stationary. All in all, the complete package, weighing just 11 kilograms. Call it a pavement-loving pony.
