Revolutionary e-bike nCycle locks itself, carries your payload, plays music, & folds easily
Revolutionizing the future of e-bikes, here’s the distinctive looking nCycle by designers Marin Myftiu and Skyrill, which is not just another bicycle, but a whole framework for all the future electric-bikes. Designed to carry your payload in style, while taking out all the worries of owing a bicycle and leaving you with only the pleasure of riding it, this sleek, sturdier, more flexible, easier to build and maintain, one-of-a-kind e-bike is a radical design to meet added functionality and optional electric power requirements, all in one, all in a totally new way of rethinking the bicycle around two main concepts; the problem solving from ground up and integrating it into the aesthetics. Though, we have also earlier seen some of the finest e-bikes like the Audi e-bike which boasts on-board computer with touchscreen display, the M55 e-bike Terminus Royal edition, Panasonic’s e-bike with LCD monitor and the world’s first e-bike, besides the world’s most expensive bicycles for uber-rich riders, but the radical nCycle is class apart in terms of unique attributes and innovative functions like the nLock, NPocket, nFold, nPower, electronic system, and headlights, and Bluetooth-speakers.
Considering the fact carrying the locks around is a problem for many riders, so the designers of nCycle came up with innovative solid, handle bar-mounted locking system that represents the best blend of safety.
Notably, the specially shaped handle bar is equipped with two sets of handles and can also be rotated to provide different riding positions.
Moving ahead from the standard solutions of bulky basket or back grille to carry your payload, the nCycle impressively makes place for a retractable pocket between its two metal plates.
Notably, the pocket totally disappears when not in use and only shows under the belly when filled with something.
With the help of special sandwich structure, the nCycle can be folded in just 2 seconds and stay sturdy, without showing any aesthetical handicaps when operational.
Folding the bicycle involves just 3 easy steps, including unlocking the rail, sliding both ends to uncover the hinge and folding.
The ride is partly aided by a rear hub mounted electronic motor. However, the electric drive will result in the increase of cost of thenCycle.
Headlights & Speakers
Powered by an integrated battery, the headlights are the built-in part of the handle bar too, and the rear of these headlights also houses an integrated system of Bluetooth speakers. Also, there’s a holographic display right on the handle bar.
Billed as just a concept for now, this revolutionary nCylcle is said to come in the market with a price tag of $4,000.
