With spring just around the corner, we just can’t wait for post-ride picnics in the park. Fruit salad is calling our name, and this kit has us ready for the sweetness!
Tossing around the idea of play when this design was being conceptualized, the artist wanted to create a fun and colorful kit to reflect her excitement for warm weather rides ahead. The end result could certainly serve as a reminder to us all that we don’t always have to take our sport (and ourselves) so seriously. In fact, between races and hard workouts, we do really need those lighthearted group rides to mix it up and keep the excitement alive.
Meet Shelby Ling, a TDG designer on the Specialized Custom team. Shelby’s bright personality really shines through in this kit. Heavily into mountain biking, taking it slow and always having fun is the attitude she puts forth when riding. As a long time freelance designer, Shelby made her way to Specialized about 3 months ago and has already had a big impact on the Custom team. From the bright color palette to the illustrative look, Fruit Salad embodies her unique style.
