L’estudi Lucid Design introdueix el concepte de bicicleta ultra-lleugera amb el seu Bike Kit, que s’envasa en una bossa especial. Encara no ha començat la producció, però ja ha guanyat el prestigiós premi Red Dot Design Award 2014.
Es tracta d’una bici construïda a partir de torsions simples de tubs buits i tot es pot muntar per un costat. Aquest kit es munta i desmunta fàcilment. És simple, mínima i fresca, a diferència de les bicicletes plegables que tendeixen a ser complexes.
A partir d’ara els enviaments, viatjes i desplaçaments amb una bicicleta “a la borsa” seran més fàcils.
Indian company Lucid Design has created a conceptual “bike in a bag” that would quickly dismantle into parts to fit into a backpack.
The Kit Bike by Lucid Design would be assembled from a series of 21 parts that twist and lock together.
“Conventional bikes are awkward in every way except when you ride them,” the company’s creative director Amit Mirchandani told Dezeen. “The Kit Bike was designed to make problems of shipping, traveling with and commuting with a bike, a thing of the past.”
Hollow aluminium tubes would make up the frame, locking together via a series of joints that would twist together using a rotating mechanism and be secured with a key.
“The entire bike can be assembled or dismantled from one side making the process extremely simple and quick,” said Mirchandani.
The minimal white diamond-shaped frame would attach to the steel wheel hubs on one side, so the bike could be assembled or disassembled while rested against a wall.
“It’s simple, minimal and cool, unlike folding bikes that tend to be complex,” Mirchandani said.
Leather is proposed for the seat and the handlebar grips would be made from cork.
The parts would pack away into a circular leather backpack, which features two compartments on each side for the wheels and a central compartment for the other components.
Lucid Design currently has no plans to produce the bike, but may consider it in the future.
The project received a Red Dot 2014 Design Award earlier this month.
Salut i bossa!
