B-9 NH Black Edition
The B-9 NH bike in its black edition, by BME, looks like it has jumped straight out of a sci-fi movie. But unlike most of the carbon fiber bikes used by world champions all around the globe, this bike has earned its look by resembling the classic F-117 nighthawk aircraft, with lines so bold and minimal that stem right from its main inspiration.
The one piece carbon stem-handlebar, BME Design’s unique carbon S72 Saddle system, in addition to the CNC machined alloy cranks custom designed for the B-9 NH, all form the extraordinarily eye-catching bike. The less-than-9 KG bicylce is described by the website as “…almost radar absorbent. Any eye that caught it would be captured in its dark gravity. With flat paneling it would look like a veiled threat”.
BME is a bicycle research and manufacturing firm. Its main focus is on materials and minimal design, and all its bicycles are designed and built by the renowned Slovenian designer Braňo Mereš, who describes his philosophy saying ” transforming a passion for pushing the boundaries of innovative materials and construction technology in creative expressions.” A philosophy best conveyed by this design.
