X-Black in the press

Who's saying what about our latest creation.

As our new collaboration with Moulton, the X-Black, goes out into the world, with the first few orders on their way to customers, it’s been an exciting time here at ColourBolt. Particularly fun has been seeing the wonderful press the bike has been getting. Here are a few of our favourite cuttings so far.

While there are plenty of options, those designed by the prodigious Alex Moulton are some of the best — and this special edition X-Black collaboration between Moulton and ColourBolt, makes it all the more enticing.”

“When you hear whispers that Moulton and Colourbolt are joining forces, it sounds like a dream collaboration. But they really did it, and have launched the Moulton X-Black.”
