Hendry Ford said: “Any customer can have a car painted any color that he wants so long as it is black”. But I’m not Henry Ford so I introduced new colors for Pole Voima and RockShox mudguards.
Black is immortal
For almost a year I was producing just classic, black mudguards and covers. It happened because I was convinced that since people like to look on some “freaky” designs, at the end of the day want to have simple, timeless design on their bikes. Recently however, one of my customers asked me to prepare yellow racing set (mudguards and battery cover). I made photo of such set and published it on social media.
The reaction was amazing. People started contacting me and asking whether I could do similar mudguards for them with yellow and different colors. Annoying feeling that I’m missing something appeared in my mind.
New colors for my mudguards
So, it came time to test different colors provided by my partner, Fiberlogy Filaments and voila!, I’m introducing four new colors of my products: yellow, red, blue and white green. They are available not only for mud fenders but also for all other products made from polypropylene (for example battery covers). Here you can see, how they appear on the bike.
Look at the whole picture
There were some comments that such colors may be suitable to multicolor bike, but not for machine like voima. Of course, there is something in it. However, in my opinion, when you decide about bike accessories, you should take into account overall appearance of bike and rider. Here some example how fenders may correspond with biker outfit.
There is no one “correct” way how to choose colors for your appearance, of course. Everyone has to find his own path to express himself.
