Shark Bike / Bicycles

Shark Bike
Shark Bike

The dented part in the front main frame of the bicycle takes after the mouth of a shark. Additionally, the streamline ranging from the front part to the rear wheel took the backline of a shark (with fins) as a motif. It breaks away from the previous bicycle form and holds an aggressive yet nimble design like a 'shark'. This is a 'folding type electric bicycle' in which the structure is formed in a way so that front and rear wheels do not include a spoke. Therefore, electric power is conveyed to the rear wheel through a lithium-ion battery built in the main frame in order to enable motor operated takeoff.
