Take your bike anywhere, with this Concept Eco // 07 by Mexican designer Victor M. AlemanThe Compactable Urban Bicycle is designed to save space when it is being transported or it is not in use. The Wheel is composed by six modules, each one has a double pivot in the joints…

this allows the wheel to fold and become smaller, the spokes are contained in the inner structure of the wheel, when you unfold the system, the spokes rotate to the center of the mechanism where it attach to the center of the wheel. The double triangle structure is composed by expandable modules, each one collapses to a smaller dimension and then this modules align by the rotation of the axis in the joint of the structure, to keep in position all the structure is used an special part in a form of an X that aligns all the modules to their position.

Alors qu’on ne compte plus les concepts de vélos pliables, le designer mexicain Victor M. Aleman, déjà présenté sur TrendsNow pour ses projets Da Spa et Loopty Loop Loopita, a imaginé le Concept Eco // 07, un vélo bien entendu pliable, mais surtout doté de roues d’un nouveau genre … qui ont la particularité de se plier également. Une idée qui brille davantage par son ingéniosité que par sa fonctionnalité mais dont le système de pliage des roues, plutôt intéressant dans son principe, est à approfondir. Tous les détails en images dans la suite !
