Zoombike designed by Richard Sapper

By | design | No Comments

Richard Sapper’s design ‘the Zoombike’ for Elettromontaggi.

The Zoombike by Richard Sapper was conceived as a vehicle with the same geometric proportions of a normal bicycle. These are able to fold easily, quickly and fold out like an umbrella through a press-button system. This grants optimal convenience for urban transportation, whether on the road, in a metro, tram or bus, in the trunk of a car, or in other confined spaces such as elevators. You can store the zoombike in almost any wardrobe or cabinet or you can even hang it on a coat hook in a small apartment. The bike is made of aluminum, has three gears and weighs only 10 kilograms. A lighter magnesium version is being developed.

The disc wheels allow very low air resistance, resulting in excellent mechanical efficiency. Despite the smaller diameter of the wheels, the gear ratios are almost the same as those of a normal road bike.
Because the design is based on aircraft technology, instead of traditional bicycle mechanics, these characteristics can be achieved.
