Text from Jaewan Jeong:
In the 22nd century, the gap between the rich and the poor is getting bigger as days go by. There have been dazzling developments in science and medical science, but they were only for the haves. The life expectancy of the haves got close to infinite, but it wasn’t the same for the rest. The monopolistic phenomenon for the haves got intensified and the invisible, non-circulating class differences among people started to occur. They gradually started to openly enjoy violent sports close to the human nature and such sports started getting filled with professional athletes and methodical systems little by little.
It was like a physical match between gladiators at the colosseum, which was a sports for aristocrats during the Roman times. In a match that was similar to a war, they had to attack each other, survive and finish the race the fastest in order to win the event and acquire huge fortune and honor.
Gladiator bike motif was taken from the chariots used by the gladiators. Identity was taken from iron bats and knife blades on both sides, and they were transformed into modern weapons to design transportation equipment. By exposing all mechanical elements nakedly of Gladiator Bike, the detail was shown and design was organized by implementing a shape that covers them.
