We’ve not seen a whole lot from Production Privée this year, but that’s not to say nothing has been going on behind the scenes.
The last time we had any really big news from Production Privée was earlier in the year when it was announced the Andorran bike brand would become part of Forestal. Since then the two brands have remained largely quiet while they work on new products, and finally, we’ve spotted something that they’ve been working on.
In an announcement earlier today on Instagram, Production Privée revealed that Pavel Alekhin “Vishneviy” would join the brand. The Red Bull sponsored athlete is known for his high-flying slopestyle antics, so which Production Privée will he being piloting into 2021? A prototype dirt jump bike of course!
The prototype has been developed as a ‘park bike’ for riders who like to throw huge whips on 40ft dirt jumps. There isn’t much information available on the bike other than it is Titanium and it features the signature ‘hourglass’ headtube of other PP bikes. We’re not certain where this frame was produced but when I visited Forestal and Production Privée earlier this year they did talk to me about steel and Titanium production all being in house in Andorra.
The current range of Production Privée bikes includes the Shan No5 steel full-suspension bike, GT 29er hardtail and 27.5in hardtail, rumour has it that bikes of other genres will join the line-up and we could see updates to the existing range soon.
