特別なもの RESEARCH TEAM

 
 

Since the inception of Tokubetsu na Mono in 2015, it was always a dream of ours to create a platform for racing. After years of preparation, 2019 finally sees the realisation of this dream.

Tokubetsu na Mono has never been about following trends. It’s about looking introspectively at our wants and needs. To evolve our passion for performance & aesthetics. It’s personal, it’s sentimental, it’s special. It’s about creating nostalgic futures.

Fortunately for us we have managed to stumble across a selection of individuals and fellow brands who share this mindset. The result is the 特別なもの Research Team.

what follows is Algedonics: the Study of the Pleasure of Pain.

 

2015年に徳別奈モノの発足以来、常にレースのプラットフォームをつくることが私たちの夢でした。何年もの準備の後、2019年はついにこの夢の実現を見ます。

徳別奈モノは、これまでのトレンドをたどったことはありません。それは私たちの欲求と必要性を内省的に見ることです。パフォーマンスと美学のための私たちの情熱を進化させる。それは個人的で、感傷的です、それは特別です。それはノスタルジックな未来を創造することです。

私たちのために幸いなことに、私たちは、この考え方を共有している個人や仲間のブランドを見つけ出すことができました。結果は特別なものです。研究チームです。

A GANG OF MISFITS

 
ALEX kwan   Australia   discovered the track scene midway through serving the army. alex can be found multi tabbing through the adobe suite on most days, and sitting on the saddle during the night - fell in love with cycling after cannonballing out of the bike once.  thinks brakes are dangerous and prefers riding a road bike like a single speed. semi-nocturnal creature with an UNHEALTHY obsession with black. owns too many pairs of boots.    @runyoko

MAX Deutsch   AUSTRALIA   Simply known to those around him as Deutsch, Max has been riding for the better half of a decade. Progressing his way through the cycling ranks over the years from humble saturday fixie shreds, to track racing and now a full-blown roadie.  His bikes may look fast but we all know the real reason he rides is to show off how loud his freehub is.    @BURNTPIES

Hasnain Iqbal   United Kingdom   Recent graduate of industrial design from Brunel university. ‘Has’ spends his days crushing the streets of London Town as a courier with a twist. Riding the aptly named Urban Arrow cargo bike Has is just at home delivery goods or good people. His mellow persona is flipped when the Skinsuits goes on! Only then do you see the demon of the track.  On the track Has only has one thing to send!    @hasnain_iqbal

Huy Pham   Vietnam   Cycling is a family affair in the Pham household. Huy’s brother Quoc introduced him to fixed gear bikes in the Olympic summer of 2012 and since then he has never looked back. He can regularly be found mobbing the group rides of Surrey & Kent. Spitting out the fully geared bikes of the overly equipped MAMILs from his single speeded weapon.  It’s big gears only for this pint sized machine.    @huyfixed

STE JUDGE   United Kingdom   Another Neo Pro completes the line up. A sports architect who was part of the team behind the Rio Olympic Velodrome. It was during one of his visits to the Manchester Velodrome that he witness the British Cycling team training and was smitten. ‘Judge’ can be described by the adage Old age and treachery will always beat youth and exuberance. We just hope the rest of the team can stay with him till the end.    @the_otaku_cyclist
