Halfbike 2 – A Vehicle That Trains Your Balance

Share
Posted April 14, 2015

Two architects Martin Angelov and Mihail Klenov searching for alternative transport systems shared a vision about Halfbike 2 – a vehicle that trains your balance and reflexes in a new way. The team  took the core driving mechanism of a classical bicycle (a wheel connected to a crankset) but redesigned everything else. The standing rider position brings you closer to natural walking and it’s the only way to control the vehicle with your whole body and not just your hands.

Halfbike is compact, light and fold-able, you’d be allowed to take it on-board most public transit systems. The frame is made of aluminum and laser cut which makes it light and yet strong enough to endure years of riding.

The Kickstarter campaign reached its funding goal in less than 24 hours with the help of over 250 backers. Halfbike is available for purchase now on Kickstarter. Shipping begins July 2015 on a first-come, first-servebasis.
