NEO ESSENCE / Bicycle

NEO ESSENCE
NEO ESSENCE

In bicyles of the future we will not be limited to pure function and necessity.
In the bicycle I propose all aspects are included in one carbon frame, including the suspension, sprockets, and folding hinge.
The flexibility of the carbon frame makes it possible to solve the problem of suspension without separate parts.
With this design, there is no longer the need for the many parts used in folding bikes.
Also, with this new minimalist design there is no need for multiple parts in the gear system.
