The latest in our Limited Edition series is the Edit v3 Deity: built with Boxxer Red Rockshox suspension, colour-coded Deity finishing kit and Stans Flow S1 wheels. Only 10 will be built.

Sometimes we have an idea for a bike that we've got to build someday. A bike that we know will be awesome - if only we can come up with an excuse to do it. That's where our Limited Edition series comes from; bikes that are unique, that you can't get anywhere else or ever again. For the ten lucky people who get one, it will always be something rare and special.

Airdrop Edit v3 Deity Ltd Edition

Deity Components

Deity is a rider-owned brand that describes it's ethos as "Armor against the corporate mentality". If that sounds a little familiar, that's no surprise - the way we run Airdrop is similar in many ways. A little more subtle perhaps, and definitely a lot smaller; but as an independent, rider-owned brand ourselves it's an ethos we can identify with. And even though Deity does sponsor a lot of racers - Brendan Fairclough, Blenki & Connor Fearon amongst others, they're always the most stylish. Seems like the #sessionsnotseconds mentality is also something we share.

For a long time now we've had a loose idea to build up a Deity equipped bike, but we never really pushed it until this year. It's one thing to have a rough idea but quite another to put together a fully dialled bike build; that can take months of planning. But we're there now - everything is in place and finally we can release it: the Edit v3 Deity Ltd Edition.

 

Edit v3 Deity Ltd Edition

10 bikes will be built at a one-time only price of £3299.
