Tomorrowland x Ridley present INVENIO

Your getaway to explore the world together

Friday, 19 January 2024 - From the heart of cycling in Belgium, Tomorrowland and Ridley are releasing the custom Kanzo Fast and Kanzo A. Invenio literally translates from Latin into “I discover”, “I find”, “I come upon”, which perfectly describes what the collaboration of Tomorrowland and Ridley embodies. Empowering people around the world to unite and explore the world together on all terrains. Two new custom bikes, complemented by a bespoke clothing and accessory collection allow you to experience true freedom, sharing moments of friendship and adventure.

Tomorrowland and Ridley are two of a kind, pioneers from Belgium, the beating heart of festival and cycling culture. This collaboration of heritage, international ambition and legacy, results in the ultimate getaway for adventure and discovery. By introducing two new custom bikes, complemented by a bespoke clothing and accessory collection, INVENIO encourages the People of Tomorrow to explore together. From riding the Tour of Flanders or Strade Bianche to your local gravel ride to your daily commute and everything in between, this collaboration gives anyone the tools to do so.

By introducing 2 custom bikes, both companies want to encourage the People of Tomorrow to choose a greener and healthier way of traveling. Both brands focus on finding the best mobility solutions to keep improving today’s impact of the crowds they gather. This way, they’ll explore the world even more and encourage everyone to do the same.

The design
The passionate team behind Tomorrowland’s creations poured their heart and soul into crafting Invenio’s inspiring design. This resulted in a captivating satin black colour, making the elegant contours and clean lines of the bike come to life. Glossy details and golden accents evoke the magic of Tomorrowland’s fireworks and the boundless energy flowing through the People of Tomorrow.

The sweeping line graphic on the bike’s front, gracefully mimic the fluid motion of Amare, the mythical bird which symbolizes the spirit of exploration and limitless voyage in Tomorrowland’s universe. These profound values intertwine harmoniously with the name ‘Invenio’, a testament to the sheer joy of exploration, the art of discovery, and the magic of a journey with friends.

This project is three years in the making and represents the first collaboration between these two Belgian entities. Ridley is highly focused on creating the best bikes for everyone, be it performance, comfort or both. Tomorrowland on the other hand brings people together from across the globe to share beautiful moments of love and passion together, through music. Bringing these two worlds together, embodied in two custom bikes, INVENIO aims to unite everyone through their love for music and cycling.
