This year’s colors, “Sunset Orange” and “Turquoise Blue,” are both striking colors that you will want to coordinate with your bike and clothing.

The models for this year’s event are Atsushi and Ran, whose characters perfectly match the color of the tires. The clothes were provided by MAAP, which offers the “Alt_Road” series of gravel clothing, and were selected to harmonize with the tires. The clothes were chosen to match the tires, creating an enjoyable atmosphere of riding and styling while touring various locations such as forest roads and beaches in the Izu Peninsula.
