BIKE CHECK: Emil Johansson’s sophisticated, rose gold Ticket for Crankworx

Emil Johansson's Ticket is a tastefully accented stunner

Emil Johansson is a font of creative bike ideas, with paint schemes inspired by everything from fighter jets to smoking jackets.

But for the new Ticket that he’s riding at Crankworx, he decided to keep things simple. His new scheme is clean with bright blue accents and logos, and fork lowers matching the frame. It simply looks really pretty.

Check out photos of the bike below, and be sure to follow Emil on Instagram and watch him ride at Crankworx on Red Bull TV.
