Halfbike 2 is designed by architect Martin Angelov, co-founder of Tuscon, Arizona-based transport design company Kolelinia.
Halfbike team has taken the core driving mechanism of a classical bicycle (a wheel connected to a crankset). The result – a pedal powered 3 wheeler vehicle that trains your balance and reflexes in a new way. Halfbike 2 not only affects your physical level but also affects the way you perceive movement and enhances your senses. The standing rider position is essential for the Halfbike 2. It brings you closer to natural walking and it’s the only way to control the vehicle with your whole body and not just your hands.
Halfbike 2 has pedal same as bicycle. In halfbike 2 there is no seat to sit, rider has to stand on pedal, and apply force on it to move forward. Backside wheels are very short compared to front wheel.
The Halfbike is 1.1 metre long and 1 metre high, it can be folded in half can fit easily in the trunk of car. It Weighs around 8kg, the frame is made from aluminium metal with the handlebars formed from treated plywood. It is available in two variant colors black and white.
