Gallery: The Human Powered Mercedes-Benz Trailblazer


Today, on Earth Day, we wanted to celebrate alternate modes of transportation, and what better way to do so than showcasing a beautiful bike from Mercedes-Benz. Starting in May, MB Accesories GmbH will add the Trailblazer mountain bike to its bicycle collection – the latest in the growing range of the Mercedes-Benz line of high-end bicycles. Perfect for going out to the trails or for trekking around the city, this bicycle has all the high-quality components that you would expect from a company like Mercedes-Benz.

The bike was created and designed by Mercedes-Benz Accessories GmbH, ADP Engineering GmbH and the Mercedes-BenzDesignCenterin Sindelfingen in collaboration with German cycle manufacturer ADP Engineering GmbH, makers of the Rotwild brand of cycles. It is a high-end bike, costing more than $4,000 USD, and comes in both a Sport Edition and a Comfort Edition. Among its features, a sophisticated four-link rear suspension and Avid Juicy Five disc brakes, as well as a lightweight aluminum frame. A number of components are available for both men and women, to ensure maximum comfort and improve the experience for the rider.

We love grabbing our trusty old bikes and riding them to the office during the week, or just taking a long ride throughout the city on the weekends. So if you were to ask us, how we will begin our day on Earth Day, we can safely say that we shall begin it by going out for a ride. Having said that, would someone like to sponsor us for a new bike?

    Wow! I can’t believe you’ve chosen this overpriced and outdated full suspension bicycle for your blog. There is absolutely nothing innovative or sexy about it. Boo!

    I check this blog daily. This is the dumbest post I’ve seen. That bike is tremendously overpriced for the quality and the components offered. It is not a bad spec, its just priced about double what it would be if it said Trek, Specialized, or Fisher on the frame instead.

    I guess the person who buys this bike is the one that buy the Lexus version of the Camry just to have the lexus key to flaunt. Not to mention that Earth Day should showcase pratical ways to be friendly. I don’t know anyone who commutes daily on a 4-5in travel dual suspension mtb – do you??????

    You don’t mess up often Inhabitat – you are allowed to slip on occasion – but lets stay focused huh??? Thanks for all your work

    What is this?…. Mercedez Marketing?…A good example of a customized new bike and its mercedez, so?.. any creativity to find a bike that does something else than having a big brand name on its frame?. So disappointed guys, its better to show not much, but quality stuff.
