State Bicycle Co.’s affinity for Wu-Tang dates back nearly a decade, when the company celebrated the 20 year anniversary of the album 36 Chambers with the Wu-Tang Brand. Now, the legendary Hip Hop group is at it again, collaborating with State Bicycle Co. for a complete line of bikes, apparel and accessories celebrating Wu-Tang’s legacy and lasting cultural impact.
State is excited to pay tribute to the legendary Wu-Tang Clan with three of their most popular models, as well as parts and softgoods to match. State’s 6061 Black Label, Core Line, and Klunker all get the Wu-Tang treatment for this collaboration.
Parts and accessories including bar tape, saddles and a wheelset ensure that Wu-Tang flair can be added to any bike you please, or serve as collectable pieces for fans everywhere. State’s Sustainable Clothing Collection, with REPREVE fabrics, also makes an appearance with tech-tees, jerseys, bibs and caps to show your love on or off the bike.
Here’s a glimpse at more of the collection.
The State Klunker is a retro-inspired, mash-up of beach cruiser, mountain bike, and BMX bike. Built on a classic-styled steel frame with simple coaster brakes, then outfitted with BMX handlebars and mountain bike tires for any road or trail surface.
The Core Line truly reflects the ethos of State, with a classic look and serious value. A mainstay of the fixed gear/singlespeed world, this bike is what put State on the map. The 4130 steel frame provides a compliant ride without sacrificing durability. A flip-flop hub allows the rider to ride fixed or freewheel while the Cult x Vans waffle pattern grips will keep you comfortable and riding hassle-free for years to come.
6061 Black Label
The 6061 Black-Label is the perfect tool for navigating the streets. Built on an agile and ultra-light, double-butted 6061 Aluminum frame with a tapered head tube and featuring an Essor USA full carbon fork, the Black Label Series is a stiff and responsive ride.
The Black Label Series complete builds are available in a wide range of colors, including ultra-limited single production-run colorways and are stacked deep with premier parts and components. The CNC’d crank set is lightweight but rigid, featuring a 144 BCD that allows for a wide variety of chainring options. A set of mid-profile wheels equipped with low-flange, sealed hubs are durable enough to take a beating on the city streets, but light enough for crit races or endurance rides. With the Black Label Series, you have the option to choose either stylish, wide riser bars or compact drop bars that provide comfort and quick transitions between hand positions.
