concept FLOW / Bike concept

concept FLOW



If you are a cyclist you might have experienced an uncomfortable moment when you unwillingly turned down a call from very experienced riders or friends for a long ride or touring because they were much faster than you and you might not be able to catch up with them on a ride. O (concept FLOW) utilizes power regeneration system and "Mechanical Assist" to fill the gap by enabling bike lovers to go even faster – and further side by side. Whether you are a highly experienced rider or just starting to ride, O can serve as the bridge between the people in different skill categories and help them to shape a new cycling community all together.

This e-bike uses intelligent motor control to help people with different riding skills to comfortably bike together. A great way to support people who may not have a competitive biking attitude, but just want to join a ride.
I am really honored to receive one of the world’s most recognized design awards. I strongly believe this will be a big motivation in view of my future career as a designer.
