Unlike of many other concepts electric bicycle concept HMK 561 from Ralf Kittmann took home an iF Design Award for some seriously forward thinking. Cyclists HMK 561 is made of conductive carbon fiber, which is not only an excellent conductor of electricity, but also acts as a capacitor that can store energy. This energy is obtained by converting the mechanical energy into electrical energy in each mobile connection of mechanism. The resulting energy fed to the engine and lights. And there is already a working prototype!

  1. I think the pegs where you place your feet are is a lever that you pump down (and comes back up somehow) and that drives the rear wheels forward. My question is where is the brake?

  2. So since the bar between the wheels rotates, notice the one in the back will spin in the opposite direction. Since one of the two wheels is going clockwise, and the other next to it is going counter-clockwise, that will equal into the bike not going anywhere at all (Or if anything, into stationary circles).

  3. Nice looking!, but, how u suppose to make the quadricycle to move? it has a motor with a diferencial? i really don’t understand that part. I can see it’s a prototype and i think u still need to redesign some details like the engineering aspects. “Q” is right about the wheels and the loosing traction problem on the turns.

    But anyways it’s a good proyect! breaking paradigms.

  4. the futures are more and more closer to come true with the dreamers dream…good luck

  5. That thing is typical of “bicycles” designed by art students. Ergonomically a failure. Two wheels on a common axel that doesn’t articulate doesn’t maintain traction while steering. I suppose you have some sort of differential?

  6. Cool concept.
    But you can’t call it a bicycle. A bi-cycle has 2 wheels.
    This thing has 4 wheels.
    It’s really a quadricycle!
