How does the CEO of a car brand keep moving in his spare time? On a bicycle, of course. At least if we're talking about Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath. Which brings us to the Allebike Alpha Polestar Edition.

It’s no secret that Thomas Ingenlath, the CEO of Polestar, is a real bicycle enthusiast. So it’s only natural that the EV brand now also has a stylish mountain bike in its catalog of accessories. Created in collaboration with the boutique family-owned Swedish bicycle brand Allebike, the special edition two-wheeler is handmade and is available only in a limited run of one hundred units. Features include an angular frame made of carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic as well as a symmetrical rear swingarm, with wireless shifting as an optional extra. To match the cars, the bicycle is only available in the matte metallic colors Snow and Space and comes with state-of-the-art Öhlins shocks. Dampers and details are painted in Swedish gold, which we think is pretty cool.

Along the Swedish coast and in the saddle, the CEO has already given an interview to our publisher and editor-in-chief Michael Köckritz: Of course, it was about bikes, the electric performance brand Polestar - but also about craftsmanship and design.
