Sciacallo Bikes have teamed up with Kiss to release a premium triathlon bicycle which is branded with the band’s famous logo.

It was designed by the company’s Milan Skrecek who, as a lifelong Kiss fan, says it’s been his dream to combine his love of the band with his career.

He says: “Growing up in the Prairies in the 70s, 80s and 90s was great times. Long summer nights up at Grand Beach with all of your friends listening to, who else, Kiss.

“My best friend Darrell and I were huge Kiss fans and we spent a big part of our lives going to concerts, dressing up at Halloween as our favourite icon – I was always The Star Child – and loving the feeling we got while listen to Kiss. It’s good time rock’n’roll – something to take your mind off things, to relax, to let go.”

He says that the planning and design of the bike has taken years but Sciacallo Bikes are honoured to be the “first company to dream up, design and develop a premium triathlon bicycle licensed to a music based entertainment licensee.”

Skrecek adds: “I am beside myself to be able to share my passion of cycling and my love of hard rock synthesised together.

“‘She can move you, and improve you’ is how Firehouse goes – and this bike will help you crush your next bike time. This bike rocks – go buy one!”

In addition to the full bike, the company are also selling bespoke pieces including carbon fibre wheel sets, a real wheel featuring the band’s images and a tri-spoke front wheel will Kiss symbols and logo.
