BRIO / Heartrate assisted Urban Bike


All our body movements and activities are a resultant of our body’s internal rhythm - our heart beat.
My aim is to extend this body’s internal rhythm to the products that we use to make the products much more responsive to the individual who uses them and for a seamless experience of the product truly becoming our body’s extension.
Brio is an electric assisted urban bicycle which provides assistance from the electric motor based on the rider’s heart rate. The design features an upright cycling posture ideal for urban non-sportive cyclists and a precision composite frame which encases the drive components for a maintenance free efficient ride.
