The Bicycle Excellence is a part of Elite's "Premium Collection" series. A new lineage of elegance in playing card design.
In November 2013, we released the Gold deck. Over the weeks that followed, we received rave reviews and requests to design a red deck. Shortly after that, we traveled to the world's capital of luxury: Paris. The city's unique atmosphere and the haute couture inspired the creation of the Bicycle Excellence. A masterpiece of pure elegance and sophistication.
The back of the deck features a superb guilloché pattern and is infused with a deep gold metallic ink, specifically formulated for Elite.
The faces are graced with classic harmonious lines, and adorned by an exquisite gold gradient.
The tuck box features a leatherette pattern and is hot stamped with several layers of highly reflective gold foil instead of ink.
The cards are made from a linen textured stock and finished with a soft coating. They handle like silk.
Fascinating from every angle, the Bicycle Excellence is the result of months of dedicated design. It combines exceptional detail with the highest quality materials.
