This study combines the latest fiber composite and lightweight concepts with new drive technology. The one-piece carbon frame was especially developed for braiding machines to facilitate fast, efficient, low-cost
production. The carbon structure serves as a battery, as an electrical conductor to power onboard devices, and also a permanent structural monitor to register damage. The front and rear swing arm are equipped with two electric motors. They transmit power directly to the rims using the counter-rotation principle. The intelligent use of materials and drive technology follows the current trend of environmental awareness.
