Storytelling through design

Starting with a modern take on midcentury design and typeface, the graphics for the OSTRO Gravel Chico Edition start with the lettering made almost entirely out of circles and semicircles to signify the wheels of a bicycle and wheels of a skateboard. The stylized Factor and Chico Stix logos vibe with the minimalist imagery used to reflect Chico’s life experiences, including the Golden Gate Bridge, the beaches where he enjoys surfing, and the national bird of Nicaragua. The images work together to illustrate Chico’s love of surfboarding, skateboarding, and cycling. And it all leads back to his arduous trip from Nicaragua to San Francisco, which historically was also a renowned Mecca for midcentury design.

Vibrant colors tying it together

Looking towards Chico’s background, the colors for the frame are based on the turquoise-browed motmot or Guardabarranco, in Spanish, which is the Nicaraguan national bird. The bird’s vibrant, beautifully colored plumes inspired the bike's bold colors. To ensure the imagery and color-blocking work well together, a subtle distressed texture has been added to the striking colors. The effect works well with the bold lettering and is also reminiscent of the midcentury design that inspired the typeface. The result is toned-down enough not to be overpowering, but still has the desired pop and brightness.

Real-world aero gravel

Underneath its vibrant, evocative paintjob is the ultimate, high performance fast gravel bike. Just because your rides take in a variety of surfaces doesn’t mean you are prepared to take a hit in your average speeds. The OSTRO Gravel provides all the lightweight, superior handling and performance that we love about the OSTRO VAM and combines that with a 45mm wide tire capability and stable geometry, which results in a gravel bike that’s equally fast across all types of terrains.
