Phoenix

Phoenix - a mystical sacred firebird in ancient Eastern and Western mythologies. At the end of its life-cycle, the bird burns itself and, then, arises as a new entity from the ashes. It is, therefore, considered symbol of immortality and regeneration.

Phoenix was selected as a theme of the Rikulau frame design because of its immortal and invincible image. The design was inspired by Chinese opera face painting. In the design, the wings of the bird flap through the turbulence of the flame, and boost the bike towards the sky.
