EUROBIKE AWARD

Toyota & Parlee Cycles have produced an aero bike that integrates available technology into a bicycle that can change gear using the rider’s thoughts using neuro transmitters built into the rider’s helmet

Aerodynamic efficient, our prototypes were wind tunnel tested to arrive at the profile that the PXP has. The carbon frame was produced at Parlee’s USA-based custom carbon bicycle factory.

Using Shimano’s Di2 we were able to run all electronics internally. A smart phone application allows the rider to control shifting and collect data via the phone. This allows for the removal of the conventional Di2 shifters creating wireless shifting.
