This gorgeous electric-enhanced Italian-made eBike featured at Milan design week provides pedal assist power for long rides with an increased pace. The design of the Cykno eBike is vintage in spirit, recalling the bicycle designs of the early-to-mid 20th century. Carbon fiber and fine leather are used liberally in this design, while classy bits of character are added in the unusual seat design, old-world headlight and radial spoke wheels. Inside the frame, a 250 watt or 500 watt battery provides 60km of pedal-assist cruising on a single charge. While resting, the Cykno can recharge in 4 hours on a standard plug, ready to ride again at the end of the work day or the following morning. Hills, wind and rough terrain are no match for the Cykno, as the internal battery and motor system even out the creases for a smooth, pleasurable ride. Take a look!

Today we want to show you very interesting bike concept INgSOC by designers Edward Kim and Benny Cemoli. Unusual combination of aerodynamic shapes of triathlon designs, flexible handling of traditional bikes and advanced hybrid power technology turns ordinary bike into vehicle from fantastic movies. “The frame is constructed from carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) for its high strength yield to weight ratio. Adaptability comes from mono-direction reinforcing of the frame, directing stiffness by orienting carbon fiber strains along a projected trajectory. The battery which powers the motor, integrated front and rear lights, as well as a charging dock for communication devices, entertainment, or navigation is directly charged from the rider’s own energy output to maximize efficiency.”
