Wish you had an all-terrain vehicle that handled like the new Mercedes-AMG GT S coupé? Your dream has come true—sort of. Inspired by the high-performance sports car, the Rotwild GT S hardtail mountain bike is the result of a collaboration between Mercedes-AMG and the German bicycle engineers at Rotwild. Designed to dominate the single-track, the bike’s carbon-fiber composition dampens vibration while optimizing power transfer. The bike’s 29-inch, carbon-fiber wheels provide responsive acceleration and braking—qualities its namesake car is renowned for—while its Shimano XTR electronic shifting system assures precise pedaling. And the Formula AMG R1 Racing FCS disc brakes and Formula ThirtyThree factory front-fork suspension will keep you from taking a beating when off the beaten path. But don’t get left in the dust, only 100 of the $11,000 bikes have been released. (rotwild.de)
