This green machine is only available in black – not reflective of an undying fashion trend – but due to the materials used.
Set to be released in July, the ’Ultra Silencer Green’ – its official name – also reduces the energy used to manufacture plastic components, saving 90% of energy compared to the production of these pieces from brand new plastic.
