The base of VERTIK LM is entirely covered with aniline full-grain leather, soft and smooth: it’s the premium quality. As it’s tanned with transparent dyes, the natural texture of the skin is perfectly visible, that’s why only the best leathers are used.
In order to adhere precisely to the hemispheric shape of the base, the leather has to be modeled, massaged, even heated by hand: only after this process, the covering can be sewed by hand and it becomes a one-of-a-kind piece.
The supporting pin and the fork strap are made of the same natural shade aniline leather, elastic yet resistant.
The dome-shaped base has a groove in the middle, designed to fit all kinds of wheels, from track bikes’ to MTB’s.
Made of rigid polyurethane, the base sits on a revolving metal apparatus: it allows to direct the lampshade according to your needs. And it makes it easier to park the bike: you just turn it around to accommodate the wheel and then turn it back in the desired position.
