Every luxury sports car has their accessories – from Ferrari’s hats and jackets, to a several thousand dollar Bugatti desk – there are endless opportunities for a car company to expand their brand. The same can be said about luxury sedans, as Mercedes Benz premieres with the first ever All Mountain mountain bike, driven exclusively by Fox Racing.
The two wheeler is “blinged” out with a DT Swiss suspension strut, Fox Racing F32 RL suspension fork, 30 speed SRAM X.9 system and hydraulic AVID Elixir 5 disc brakes. If that doesn’t make you drool, then you probably shouldn’t be interested in this kind of Mercedes Benz – and executive toy specifically delivered for only the elite mountain rough riding experts.

Hardly your average mountain bike, Mercedes Benz’s signature precision comes in every detail of this new two wheel device – like aluminum developed from renowned Germany cycle manufacturer ADP Engineering GmbH. It might not be your typical Mercedes Benz, but with a suspension built like the S class, you’re going to feel right at home when climbing up rock strewn mountains.
With several different models and a few years in the biz, Mercedes Benz has already tracked down some heavy weight sponsors in Formula 1 drivers Michael Schumacher and Nico Rosberg, who effortlessly rode their Mercedes Benz bikes during the off-season.
The funny thing is – as sporty as Mercedes Benz can be, there comes a twist – among the line of new mountain bikes from this luxury car brand is the fully-automatic pushbike; a shapely, well-built contraption that has an 8-speed gearshift system; and the whole elegance aspect of the Mercedes Benz bike comes crawling to a halt. Granted, it’s still got that famed symbol overhead, but with a crouched frame, it’s hardly the smooth drive we’d expect from the Mercedes Benz S Class.
