FiftyOne Bikes is dazzling gravel grinders with the launch of its special edition Black Ops Assassin gravel bike, treating them to a stealthy paint scheme that features black graphics over a raw carbon fiber with a clear coat finish.
“During development of the Assassin, the prototypes were unpainted, with only clear-coat over the raw carbon. We did this so we could check the frames easily after every test ride and to showcase the craftsmanship. Then it turned out that a lot of people who were allowed to see those prototypes really loved the look, so we had to make it an option,” explains Aidan Duff, founder of FiftyOne Bikes.
The special edition Black Ops Assassin is available as a stand-alone frameset for €3,499, with complete bike starting at €4,500.
