Alain Brideson Design

Gold Pin - Product

Manta5 SL3 - Alain Brideson, DINZ
The SL3 needed to be inspiring to behold and become the essence of the Manta5 vision. It was so important that the technical innovations became integrated, invisible and wrapped, in one slender hydrodynamic form. Not only did it need to have perfect balance in weight and volume for an enjoyable riding experience, but also to strike a balance in visual proportions to be a high performance and attractive piece of sporting equipment.

RF 100 Bed System - Tim Rundle, PDINZ
