Each year at the mountain bike event Crankwrox held in Whistler, British Columbia they crown the top riders as the king and queen of crankworx. In 2015 a new approach was taken by giving them life sized septers.
We created these septers out of 3 pieces of wood attached to a metal core, toped with a crown holding a glass globe. We etched and colored the names of the 3 locations around the world the event takes place; Whistler, Rotorua, Les 2 Alpes. Late in the design process the client decided the 5 foot height of the septers was going to be big for taking on an airplane, so we devised a way for the septers to unscrew in half for easy transportation.
