What is common to a Vincent (HRD, Rapide) and a Jessica (Beil, Simpson, Alba)? These are things in life which you will always want or lust for, but can never have and you know that just as well, but still you will keep on wanting and hoping for ever.
Confederate is just a name you will always have it in your 'want / lust' list. And with every product they feature, the hunger grows. Confederate has just launched its 3rd product after the Hellcat and Wraith. Its named C120 Renaissance Fighter and its as radical as its elder brothers, as limited as its elder brother and just as hell expensive.
The Fighter clarifies opaqueness and nullifies hype with straight-forward true to concept certitude. At the source is a classic right triangle. Proportion is classically derived. Scale is middle way. Bearing exudes structural permanence. Human integration deploys yang energy, vitality, and power in the most simple, pure and direct form. Geometry is optimized for the medium and/or long disciplined journey of sensory heightened motion. Torque to weight is maximized. Engine, suspension and ergonomic luxury and ease of use is optimized. Materials utilization is the finest. Individual piece and component specification is highest and best.
Craft preparation and specification is uncompromised. The aesthetic is fresh, industrial, sculptural, holistic and honest. The saddle of the Fighter is your place for those outings which require extended time, geography, meditation and distance. Personal liberation will result!
Amen to that. So , if you are really planning to buy the Fighter or wanting a look, visit the Fighter website. Additional photos sourced from Confederate website, where a Neiman Marcus page has been created to promo this bike.
