TAN LINE x Edmmond | BORN IN THE CITY ESTABLISHED ON THE MOUNTAIN
Madrid-based TAN LIИE has presented its latest collection of cycling gear, partnering with Edmmond Studios for a series of performance pieces sustainably conceived with the finest cycling fabrics. Overall, the collection is limited to just 50 pieces, each of which is pieced together from excess cycling jerseys, bibs and organic cotton made in Portugal.
TAN LIИE is a pioneer brand specialized in activewear. It was the first cycling and high resistance sports brand to incorporate sustainable fabrics in all of its designs. In order to capture the essence and understand more about this sport, we had a conversation with Pitera Rey, a well-known cyclist from Madrid.
Pitera describes riding as a necessity such as eating or breathing, although some may consider this affirmation an exaggeration. He rides to feel alive; to enjoy the suffering, nature and the roads, and his bike is his main way of transportation all over the city of Madrid.
Regarding the changes in trends happening in cycling nowadays, Pitera believes they’ve always existed; they’ve just been renamed or reintroduced. Nevertheless, he claims that technology has brought a new perspective on the sport, given the fact that bikes have evolved into more polyvalent, precise, faster and lighter machines.
This collection brings the perfect mix of style and functionality for all the people who, like Pitera, love to ride their bikes for as many hours as possible throughout the day.
