Find Your Secret Surf Spot on the Kākau Go!
The inspiration behind this bike comes from the traditional tattoo style that originated on the Polynesian islands, known as Kākau (pronounced kay-cow). This style of tattoo is done by tapping ink into the skin to create intricate designs. These designs were not merely for show, but acted as storytelling pieces of a family’s history and to pay respects to spiritual entities. Though this style of tattooing is less common today, you can still find elements of their designs in today’s culture across the islands.
Take a moment to admire the attention to detail throughout this highly stylized Cruiser Go!. The Matte Ember frame flickers with metallic brown and red flakes simulating the lava fields found on these tropical islands. You will find our Electra logos on the frame and chainguards have a woodgrain underlay, reminiscent of the Koa trees that were used to create the first surf boards.
Something extra special awaits you on the rear fender. It’s a vintage image of a secret surf spot. Maybe you know it. Maybe you don’t. That’s part of the mystery for you to figure out!
At Electra, being artistic, fun, and expressive is in our DNA. If you haven’t checked out all our Artist Series bikes, take a second from your day to revel in these masterpieces. These rolling pieces of art would look great hanging on the wall, but they would be much happier cruising the streets in the afternoon sunshine. Interested in picking one up?
