Summer is fast approaching and Cult Crew has rolled out a stellar lineup of new goods. No matter who you are sweating, whether it be Dak, Dehart, AK, Timmy, or Hawk they've all contributed their signature touch. As you've come to expect from the brand, it's all clean, simple, and above all else functional. Cult doesn't rely on gimmicks, they send the trends and let others try to keep up. Take a look at some of our favorites, including a Chicago Bulls inspired SOS frame, and a colorway perfect for the 4th of July BBQ.

Butter V3 Frame

The Butter is Chase Dehart's signature frame, and for the 3rd incarnation he decided to keep it simple as can be allowing the price point to drop to $250. In Chase's own words "Cult covers everything from sizes, colors, and now prices, it's all there and this is just another option to have a frame at equal quality, with a few less gimmicks" and "the frame turned out real clean, there's no branding on the chain stay bridge, or the gusset, I honestly just like plain bikes with plain stickers." At the end of the day a bike is meant to be ridden, and Chase has chosen to emphasize function over flash.

AK Tire

Alex Kennedy is enormously popular these days, but still manages to keep a low profile. His signature tires on the other hand are anything but low profile with an inflated diameter of 21.2" and 2.6" width. Big, round, grippy, and fast is the name of the game when it comes to modern street tires, and few are on the cutting edge like AK.

2 - Short Frame

Short frames are all the rage. Cult joins the fray with their 2Short frame, a homage to the famous Bay Area rapper Too $hort. With nods to Bad Boy and Death Row in the past it only makes sense to continue on the tradition of hip hop inspired names. Brief music history lesson aside, if you are looking for a responsive poppy frame, then Cult's 2Short with its steep head tube angle (75.5°) and short backend (12.5" - 12.8") is just what you should be after. Blow the whistle!

SOS Timmy Theus Frame

The Bulls reigned supreme in the 90's. Thanks to MJ and 6 championships, everyone and their mother either loved or hated Chicago's basketball club. If Cult's Timmy Theus signature SOS colorway is any indication, he grew up a big fan. Black with red sparkle topped off with Bulls inspired font is a perfect nod to the Chi-Town dynasty.

LIMITED EDITION COLORWAYS

Red Blue1
Red Blue2

Cult Summer 2016 limited edition colorways cover two ends of the spectrum, from a bright bold red and blue to a sleek retro gray. When it comes to the visuals of American summers, its fireworks, BBQ's and beaches, and the patriotic red and blue. Pair that splash of color with a clear raw Hawk or Timmy Theus SOS, and finish it off by way of sprocket and stem in retro gray and you'd have a bike everyone at the 4th of July party would be envious of.
