Phoenix, AZ (August 17, 2021) – State Bicycle Co. has teamed up with the National Park Foundation to create a limited-edition collection of bicycles, clothing, and accessories – proceeds from which will help support America’s beloved national parks.
The State Bicycle Co x National Park Foundation collection will feature an assortment of limited edition bikes, apparel, and accessories that utilize select imagery from some of America’s most stunning and iconic landscapes. A portion of proceeds from the sale of each piece in this collection will go towards supporting NPF’s mission to protect national parks and connect people to them.
State has promoted sustainability, eco-consciousness and love for the great outdoors. For State co-founder Mehdi Farsi, a collaboration with the NPF celebrating America’s natural beauty was the next logical step.
“It’s an honor and privilege to have the opportunity to work with the National Park Foundation,” says Farsi. “As riders, we must ensure that we are taking care of our outside playground and preserving it for future generations of riders. For many Americans, this starts with the national parks. We hope that we can all do our part in preserving and promoting the beauty of the great outdoors.”
The collection features five frames, each painted with special imagery and motifs to pay homage to a park. The limited-edition: 4130 All-Road (Joshua Tree), 4130 Road Bike (Glacier), Core-Line (Redwood), and 2 Klunkers (Grand Canyon & Yellowstone).
Each clothing item in the collection is made from recycled 100% post-consumer waste, using garments from State Bicycle Co.’s Sustainable Clothing Collection. Each tech-t, cycling jersey, and bib set in the SBC Sustainable Clothing Collection is constructed with REPREVE®, a polyester primarily recycled from water bottles. Performance and quality have not been spared in the name of sustainability. This apparel emphasizes exquisite fit, top performance, and attention to detail.
Five matching handlebar bags inspired by the parks have been released as part of the collection. Perfect for storing snacks and supplies for an all-day ride, these universal bags are a must-have accessory for all adventure riders and fit on almost all bikes.
