CREATED by the Land Rover design team, under the direction of design director, Gerry McGovern the newest member of the Range Rover Evoque family broke cover at the Geneva Motor Show - the Evoque bike.

Central to the bike’s appeal is a carbon fibre monocoque frame, crafted using techniques derived from Formula 1. According to its designers, the advanced composite construction allowed the seat tube section to be integrated into the frame, saving weight and extending the clean flow of the design. The steering components are colour-matched to the frame, which carries Range Rover and Evoque branding graphics. The transmission is a 20-gear Shimano Ultegra system.

The wheels were specially commissioned for the Evoque project. Formed from aero-profiled carbon fibre, they have a deep section designed to cut through the air quickly while maintaining stability.

Gerry McGovern, Land Rover design director, a keen cyclist himself, said: “I wanted to create the ultimate accessory for the Range Rover Evoque - and what could be more perfect than an utterly contemporary, beautifully designed, bespoke Evoque bike. Like the Range Rover Evoque, the bike not only looks fantastic but is precision engineered for ultimate performance.”
