Duff in the buff?

18 02 2016

We first laid on eyes on The Simpson/CULT Duffman cruiser back in 2013.

It was head-turner for a number of reasons:

  • It was a CULT cruiserCULT is usually all about the 20″
  • It was bright orange…with Duffman graphics
  • It was 6061 Aluminum (unusual for a CULT bike)
  • It was a freakin’ Duffman cruiser!

A rad collab bike to be sure.

But as we all know…a nice complete…while cool in its own right, will never be cooler than a custom bike built to a rider’s specifications.

And while many riders will use color for that custom lookBMX Museum member, audiosquare, went the opposite route.

He just didn’t dig the stock orange color.

So he stripped it right down.

Now, it sports a clean aluminum look.

And it totally changed the personality of the bike.

Nice job audiosquare.

The Simpsons/CULT Duffman Cruiser

12 09 2013

In one of the coolest collaboration projects ever, CULT has teamed up with The Simpsons to create the 24″ Duffman cruiser!

According to CULT’s Robbie Morales, in an interview in DEFGRIP, the project got its start at the AGENDA TRADESHOW in Long Beach (California).  Robbie says:

Santa Cruz skateboards had just finished a board collab with THE SIMPSONS, and their people were walking the show. They noticed Adam L. Roye in our booth rocking a SIMPSONS shirt and they really liked CULT and the aesthetic of the brand. They politely asked if we were interested in doing a bike collab and we graciously agreed. Adam and the rest of our crew are big fans of the show, so it was natural to work together.

There’s going to be a limited number of these completes available. In terms of details on the bike itself, Robbie says:

This bike is made from 6061 T-6 aluminum to keep the weight down and provide a stable, responsive ride. The spec is dialed and with the DUFFMAN logos it looks awesome. Definitely a bike you can thrash on or just cruise to the bar.

No details yet on geometry and other specs but we’ll let you know if (or when) they become available.
