Colors: We offer four basic categories of color: opaque, kandie, pearl, and prismatic. Within each category there are thousands of color choices available. Each of the categories can be painted on carbon, titanium, aluminum, and steel frames. Carbon does not require a base coat. Titanium, aluminum, and steel do require a base coat. We will color match any color from a photo or print source.
Opaques: Opaque colors will be applied over a primer coat and will, therefore, not show the frame material beneath.
Candies: Kandies are subtle, translucent colors that change their hue slightly depending on the intensity and direction of light. Painted on carbon, kandies allow the weave of the carbon fabric to show through. Frames may be entirely painted in a kandy or be painted in an opaque to kandy fade. A gold or silver metallic color may be added to the kandy to give a slightly brighter and metallic shade.
Pearls: Pearls are also translucent colors that give a slightly “pearl like” appearance to the frame, just as the real pearl shows subtle shade differences when in the sun. When seen from varying angles the pearls will give off slightly different hues. Pearls are not used in fades but instead applied to the entire frame.
Prismatic: Prismatics are solid colors that give off slightly different hues when seen from different angles; normally up to three shades of a base color can be seen in a prismatic color. Other brands of prismatic colors are “Cromolution” and “Harlequin.” The most popular choice is the blue prismatic.
