Audi of America has announced that it has teamed up with Renovo Hardwood Bicycles, the "only all-hardwood bike manufacturer in the world", to create an Audi-inspired bicycle collection that embodies "luxury and performance."

A statement from Audi said the Duo range is "a work of art and a mode of transportation that blends beauty and craftsmanship with performance and technology."

Audi Duo will comprise three bikes: commuter, hybrid and road. The bikes will be for sale on the Audi Collections website.

The Duo bicycle frames comprise monocoque frames made of hardwood. 

"Wood offers the smoothest ride of any bike frame material thanks to its superior ability to absorb shock and vibration," said a statement from Audi.

The Audi bikes are modelled on Renovo's existing bikes

"Audi is the first automaker to recognize the benefits of, and offer a bicycle made from, wood," said Audi USA. 

The Audi Duo bikes feature Gates CenterTrack belt drives and cost $6,530-$7,460.
