Condor for Lotus

Condor for Lotus Bespoke Bicycles

Two British brands, steeped in heritage and racing history, shaped by numerous championship titles and joined by an ethos to create lighter, better product to enhance performance.

Lotus and Condor were both born in 1948, both born in Britain, and both recognised within their respective industries for lightweight products. Collaboration between Lotus and Condor is a natural fit. The history of the two companies mirror so perfectly, it could almost be a fictional story.

Lotus is no stranger to cycling. The 1992 Barcelona gold medal winning, Lotus engineered, Type 108 bike redefined the bicycle, before a ruling was made banning its radical design from further competitions. 20 years after the golden success in Barcelona, and on the eve of the 65th year of both companies, Lotus and Condor have united to celebrate their history, their shared ethos and to push the future of lightweight performance further.

Two unique bicycles have been created, as part of an on-going project, utilising the expertise of both companies, to redefine what is known about speed on two wheels.
