Back in 2015, Mercedes-AMG collaborated with German bicycle manufacturer Rotwild to produce the Rotwild GT S mountain bike. Well road-bikers, now it's your turn, as Mercedes-Benz has joined forces with Canada's Argon 18 to create the Mercedes-Benz Style Endurance Bike.

Scheduled to be released this fall (Northern Hemisphere) at an as-yet undisclosed price, the Endurance Bike features an Argon 18 full carbon fiber frame and a specially-shaped fork that's said to be optimized for vibration absorption and control.

It also features a silver/black-gradient paint job, inspired by the color scheme of Mercedes-Benz automobiles.

It will be available in six frame sizes and in two build packages. One of those packages features Shimano Ultegra Di2 electronic shifting and FSA carbon fiber wheel rims, while the other includes the regular "analog" version of Ultegra (which is still pretty snazzy) along with FSA alloy rims. Both versions will also sport hydraulic disc brakes.

And in case you're wondering, endurance bikes (aka sportive bikes) are not unlike race-oriented road bikes, although they're designed to be softer-riding and more comfortable.
