OPUS launches colourful new line of Classico city bikes for Spring 2015 season
Toronto, ON — Canadian bicycle company OPUS celebrates the arrival of spring with an update on its successful Classico city bikes, available in a range of sunny colours that will please every discerning taste. With its modern technology, retro inspiration and vibrant colors, the “his and hers” collection meets the urban cyclist’s demand for both style and functionality. The Classico collection is simply this season’s “must have.”
“We chose the new colours for the Classico collection to appeal to the wide range of urban cyclists, from neophyte to the experienced urban travelers who are keen to be informed on the latest trends,” said David Bowman, president of Outdoor Gear Canada, the country’s largest distributor of bicycles and accessories, and the company behind OPUS.
With seven vivid colors and two builds to choose from, Canadians will be instant Classico fans. To celebrate spring and make urban outings more fun, people can choose from poppy red, opaline green, imperial green, cerulean blue, night blue, tangerine orange, garnet red, deep turquoise, raven black, gloss white, or platinum gray — each a standout on road or bike paths.
In addition to the head-turning retro styling and colors, the supremely practical Classico 1.0 and 2.0 models are the simplest way to get around town. Made from 6061 aluminum, they are designed for quick and efficient urban jaunts. The Classico 1.0 is equipped with a kickstand, fenders and rack, and sells for $699.99, while the Classico 2.0 also comes well-equipped for $559.99.
OPUS’ latest urban bike collection showcases the bright, deep colors that best respond to urban cyclists’ growing demand, while also hitting the right sunny notes for the season.
