Frederic Boonen, the CEO of Boonen Design Studio, expands his portfolio by developing an aluminum hinged, folding carbon fiber city bicycle. Simply press a button to fold the bike.
This project started with a personal approach, and through thorough investigations to create an ideal city bike for the end user. Lightweight, easy to fold and with characteristic line where the design brief of the customer’s CEO Joep Kempen. A button under the handlebar pulls the two hinge points to disconnect the bike into two parts, enabling it to resize for carrying in tight spaces. A 200 Watt electric motor together with a battery pack can help push the user at least an additional 15 kilometers. Motor, controller and batteries are embedded in the carbon frame. Using bluetooth connectivity, the foldable bike communicates vitals such as speed, battery status and navigation via an app to a smartphone.
