Ecotourism has really taken off with a roar and we are most certainly enjoying the ride, particularly when it involves moving about on a bicycle. However, it’s not an easy feat carrying around our bikes with us, especially when we board a plane. In order to conquer the problems of transporting a bike around, a team of ingenious individuals have come up with a folding bike called Impossible; if you’re ever wanted to be able to just put your bike into your backpack and be able to carry it for longer journeys on your back, this lightweight contraction fits your needs perfectly!
The frame of the Impossible is built around circles, has its seat and handles positioned in a way that makes it easy to collapse, and is strong enough to carry up to 180 pounds. Working with batteries instead of paddles, just charge the bike at the nearest port and head out for a 45 minute ride around town! Best part is that about 40% of the parts on the Impossible are customizable, while the team is currently working on making sure that number rises to 60%.
This is how it transforms:
Should the Kickstarter campaign reach and surpass its goal, we are looking at having the smallest, most compact bike available on the market. The project of 3 years is finally ready for the mass market and it’s not quite a stretch to think that in a few years’ time, these types of bikes will be available everywhere, particularly if they will be working on batteries that last for hours on end!
