Cycling enthusiasts, rejoice! If you're looking to give your beloved bicycle a fresh new look or simply want to make a statement on the road, then look no further than the RAL Classic colour chart. With an array of stunning colours to choose from, you can now transform your two-wheeler into a head-turning masterpiece. 

What are RAL Colours?

The RAL colour system is a widely-used European colour matching system, known for its precision and consistency. Established in 1927, the RAL Classic chart contains 216 colours, each with a unique four-digit code, making it an ideal choice for powder coating your bicycle.

Powder coating is a popular finishing technique that offers several advantages over traditional paint, such as:

  1. Durability: A powder-coated surface is more resistant to chipping, scratching, and fading, ensuring your bicycle stays looking fresh for longer.

  2. Environmentally friendly: Powder coating emits fewer volatile organic compounds (VOCs) compared to conventional liquid paint, making it a more eco-friendly option.

  3. Versatility: With the wide range of RAL colours at your disposal, you can create a personalized, unique look for your bicycle.

How Do I Choose a RAL Colour for My Bicycle?

Choosing the perfect RAL colour for your bicycle is a fun and creative process. Here are a few tips to help you find the right shade:

  1. Personality: Consider your personal style and preferences. Are you a fan of bold, bright colours or do you prefer a more subtle, understated look?

  2. Visibility: If safety is a concern, opt for a high-visibility colour like RAL 1026 Luminous Yellow or RAL 3024 Luminous Red to ensure you're seen on the road.

  3. Colour harmony: Consider the colour of your bike's components, such as the saddle, handlebars, and tires, and choose a complementary or contrasting RAL shade
