Biomimetic design bike
Over the last millenia mankind ”has been torturing nature for her secrets” (F.Bacon).
Biomimetics is the study of the structure and function of biological systems as models for the design and engineering of materials and machines. It allows to obtain high levels of efficiency and sustainability besides a great integration with the surrounding environment being the design inspired by nature itself.
The electric pedal assisted bicycle “Biobike” has been designed following the principles of biomimetic design, its frame is inspired by birds nest and skeleton, resulting in a strong, lightweight and aerodynamic structure.
