Not wanting to reduce the dimensions of the bike, Gianluca Sada has designed a spokeless folding bike, Sada Bike. Realizing the concept of folding bike usually focuses on reducing weight and dimensions that usually lead to smaller sized bike, Sada feels that small frames and wheels only means expense of stability just for the sake of compactness and portability. The smaller size of the frame sacrifices rider position while driving while the smaller wheels are affected by variations in terrain. These conditions are not present with traditional bikes, however, the rigid chassis makes them inflexible during transport on public transport.
Sada Bike aims to provide you with a standard bike yet can be transformed into compact unit during transportation. Its 26-inch wheels don’t have spokes thus creating minimum size when folded which can be done in single movement. The packaging container can also function as a backpack, pretty cool heh?
Designer : Gianluca Sada
This project started as research study of art that starts from an overview of urban individual mobility to reach, then, folding bicycle. Sada Bike uses a system of anchoring wheels composed of small wheels held by a small frame with a specific quick clamping device. This system allows you to fold the bike quick and easy, this bike could offer you personal style and extreme versatility compared to traditional bikes.
You really, Really, REALLY Should Consider a Wheelchair Application to the Folding Bike Concept Design!!!
