Also available in Red, Bicycle Chainless celebrate a classic deck of cards from an era of simple, elegant design.
The original deck was discontinued in 1917 after 18 years in-print and was intended to celebrate the technological advancements made to bicycles at the turn of century. The chain has remained an integral part of bicycles since their popularity boomed - only in the last decade however, have major companies started experimenting with belt-drives, electric bicycles and other means of internally driven (chain-less) bikes!
The tuck case has been inspired by the back of the first ever Bicycle® product packaging, featuring a vellum tuck case stock and embossed elements.
This deck is printed on premium card-stock with the classic Air-Cushion finish for optimum performance.
You'll find that a lot of the decks showcased on our site are manufactured by The United States Playing Card Company and rightly so, they create some of the world's best playing cards!
Bicycle® is a brand developed by USPCC, named after their first back design which features penny-farthings, and are used for everything from household games to the most exclusive tables in Vegas. Bicycle cards have paved a path to freedom for POW's in WWII and kept presidents entertained in the oval office! They've been handled by some of the world's most famous magicians, Blaine and Copperfield to name but two, and are treasured by families, collectors and cardists.
For over 130 years USPCC have been referred to as the 'First in Fun' for bringing people together in the name of a good game with great company.
