Unlike the infamous Italian supercars, these bikes weren’t built for speed. But they sure strike a sporty silhouette. But beyond that, their nontraditional body offers a nice stable ride for urban pedalers.
Imagine being able to carry a clean energy vehicle with you, just about wherever you go. Enter the folding electric bike. Battery-powered bicycles are on the rise as two-wheeled commuting gains popularity in places with heavy traffic and limited parking.
In the same way that we mock those old-timey bicycles with the extra big front wheels, people will soon say, “Remember when bikes still had spokes and the wheels didn’t light up?” That’s because the carbon fiber Cyclotron is here to change everything you know about pedal-powered transportation.
It’s already hard enough to just go mountain biking where there are no trails. It’s already hard enough to just walk on a slackline suspended in the air. So naturally, it makes perfect sense to go mountain biking on a slackline. Wait. What? That’s what Kenny Belaey did. He rode his bike on a slackline over a 367-foot drop in the French Alps.
