Iride. Fine Italian Bicycles
Generations of Tradition
accumulation of wisdom
Iride bicycles possess a complimentary balance of traditional and advanced. The 3 U.S. models have steel frames of the most advanced metallurgy, joined with generations of knowledge in hand-made technique and finished in hi-tech powder coating. Then mated with high-end components and wheels, and carbon fiber forks. They are space age, old world and artisanal.
The sports car of bicycles
simplified direct high performance
The undeniable exhilaration provided by traveling the path in an open top sports car is the motivation for the straightforward designs of Iride bicycles. To embody this essence and create a resonant experience the design team employs simple honest genuine design elements, enhancing performance while reducing unnecessary complexity. Like the classic barchetta.

“I find that the acceleration is surprising.” says Clayton Curtis, Ph.D., Associate professor, New York University, Neural Science Center. “The acceleration is amazing. I feel that I could do the same top speed as my racing bike, but this Iride really accelerates.” Dr. Curtis says.
Subtle High Performance
for going places
Iride bicycles are dialed-in for high-performance yet casual riding; they are for going places. While worthy of racing, Iride bicycles are primarily designed to require less energy to go fast.
Because when it is easier to go fast, you arrive with less perspiration.
