Mikael Kjellman lives in Sweden, where biking can be pretty unpleasant in winter. So he came up with this vehicle which offers enclosed seating and operates on pedal and electric power. A kit has been funded on Indiegogo, so hopefully we’ll see them on the road.
A futuristic bicycle that takes its inspiration from TRON’s lightcycles. It has hubless wheels, airless tires, a carbon fiber frame, integrated LED illumination, a wealth of sensors, and an optional electronic gearbox. And yes, the bike shown in the video is a real, working prototype.
Bosch powers some of the best electric bikes with their integrated crank-based drive unit that offers a more natural and balanced feel than wheel-mounted motors. Assistive drive makes you feel like you have bionic legs with speeds up to 28 mph, and from 30 to 100mi range.
A set of high tech bike lights that hold in place with powerful magnets. The headlight and rear brake light offer bright turn signals, and the rear light also projects a laser perimeter on both sides of your bike. A power-saving mode adjusts their intensity based on ambient light.
A folding electric fat tire bike. The RadMini comes has 4″ wide and 20″ tall Innova tires, 180mm front and 160mm rear disk brakes, LED headlight and taillight, front and rear cargo racks and a 750W motor that can get you up to 20mph. Available in black or white.
Add an electric motor to your bicycle in just a couple of minutes with the GeoOrbital. Its 500w motor goes up to 20mph for up to 20mi per charge without pedaling. The electronics are mounted inside the rim and flat-proof tire, which mount into your existing front fork.
Peel-and-stick spoke reflectors that are incredibly thin, light and tough. Flectr has thousands of reflective prisms to ensure visibility, and its aerodynamic form will not flap, move or make noise even at high speeds. There’s also a wheel magnet variant.
A magnetic pin that blocks the cap of #4, #5 and #6 hex bolts, the ones commonly used to secure bicycle parts. Each pin is angled and so small that only the Hexlox key can take it out, and each order of pins only works with the key that comes with it.
An adult bicycle inspired by kids’ mini-bikes from the ’60s and ’70s. The Ruckus has a beautiful chromoly frame and a custom fork and handlebar combo, a long lounge seat and either a single-speed, eight-speed or eight-speed with electric assist motor. Drops 4/2016 for $918+.
A bicycle made to withstand a harsh coastal environment. The Priority Coast has a rust-proof aluminum frame and fork, stainless steel fenders and spokes, weather-resistant grips and seat, a carbon belt drive and sealed bearings.
Bookman’s rechargeable bicycle lights are visible both straight ahead and from the side, thanks to their curved design. Their silicone strap fits up to 40mm poles. The front light lasts up to 35 hours per charge while the rear light lasts up to 10 hours per charge.
An absolutely stunning cruiser bike made primarily from wood. Its frame, pedals, and mudguards are made from birch and oak. It’s got a Shimano 3-speed shifter, Shimano rollerbrakes, and (thankfully) a saddle made from leather, not wood. (Thanks João!)
