Kolelinia has introduced a new bike design to bring back the fun in urban mobility, a lightweight and compact vehicle to help you cruise the street easily. The good news is, this personal vehicle is commercially available for you to purchase, starting from $799.

Halfbike design is really minimalist, it doesn’t even have a seat, but don’t worry, this vehicle was designed with user’s experience in mind, it kinda reminds us to S3TR Streeter, pretty similar don’t you think?. Halfbike combines cycling and smooth assisted running for extremely quick and fun urban travel, the upright riding position gives you a new perspective of the city. You can get better visibility and excellent control, turn left or right by simply leaning, the vehicle follows your body.

The reason why Halfbike doesn’t have a seat is because it is meant to be used for short commuting distances of 1-3 miles. The compact size is small enough to carry onboard public transport or elevator, you can easily carry it on stairs, yes, it is that light. Small size also means it fits into small space which isn’t normally for standard bike. Don’t you just love the design that mimics low-impact style running? It’s an ideal vehicle for both recreation and exercise, the joy of riding this bike will motivate you to get out more.

Each unit is produced locally using high quality materials and components, the aluminum frame is laser cut and hand welded while the handlebar is hand crafted from impregnated plywood.

No More Ladder Slips with Feet First Ladder Safety System

The feet first ladder safety system addressed two main issues; ladder slips and angle control, which was inspired by the frequent accidents happening due to slipping the ladder base. The device attaches with the ladder footing, allowing increased friction and greater control at the ladder base. The grip has been specially designed to replicate the adhesive attributes of gecko feet for increased friction, even in damp surfaces. The grip is made of gecko synthetic adhesive polymer, which comprises millions of tiny contact hairs named setae, able to adhere with anecdotal surface textures. The adjustable feet height will allow the users to place it on uneven surfaces with maximum efficiency.
