Óscar Freire, has from today at his residence in Torrelavega, the most personal and representative bicycle of his career. MMR's tribute to his career and outstanding achievements. His unique character deserved an unrepeatable object.
To mention Freire is to place ourselves in a record of three victories in the road world championships. And that is a table only shared by Alfredo Binda, Eddy Merckx, Rik Van Steenbergen and Peter Sagan.
The Adrenaline Aero, MMR's high aerodynamic performance model with great visual presence, manages to extend its aesthetic impact with the finish chosen by Javier Gonzalez, MMR's art director.An MMR design based on "a darkened chrome with reminiscences of trends from past decades.
The final finish is enriched by the combination with black, which gives it connotations of exclusivity and moderation".
Going even deeper, "the monochromatic combination is contrasted by a rainbow flag in saturated colours, an element which, although classic, is the undisputed protagonist of the design and of Óscar Freire's own career".
A project that lasted 4 months, between the MMR headquarters in Avilés and the Muse Bikes studio in Madrid, responsible for the hand-painting of this Adrenaline Aero.
