Specialized have unveiled a quite wonderful Olympic Torch paint scheme. As Cyclingnews reported, the colour scheme changes according to the temperature.
The new Olympic paint scheme is a salute to ‘the Gods of Sport’ as a Specialized press release explains. The frame colour scheme will apply to S-Works Tarmac and Epic FSR machines as well as the Amira which is displayed in the video.
Look out for the colour scheme to come into play on the bikes of the likes of Vincenzo Nibali, Peter Sagan (who will race the mountain bike event) and Elizabeth Armitstead.
The key feature of the Specialized colour scheme is that once the temperature reaches 22 degrees Celsius the frame colour will transfer from red to bright yellow.
We thought that was pretty amazing! We think you will too!
