Buffer Bike

With the growing environmental awareness, more and more people choose to go out by bike. However, the saddles of many bikes are so tall that the bikers are liable to fall down in emergency braking or running into barriers. Therefore, we designed the “Buffer Bike”. When you are emergency braking or running into barriers, you can move the handgrips forward and rise then upward so that the human body will bend forward, giving some buffer time, and lower the gravity center of human. In this way, when you run into barriers carelessly, you won’t fall down from the bike due to inertance.
