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.
