GEO is a striking and futuristic electric bike concept full of curves and without brake handles.
The electric bikes are very fashionable, along with electric scooters, and it is not strange that the imagination is fired to achieve different designs. Of course, that of GEO It is, a concept of electric bicycle that goes beyond everything pre-established.
It is a project by students Cheolhee Lee, Dahae Lee and Hyewon Park, who sought to make the current concept of electric bicycle as futuristic as possible. Although not a product, It is a striking and ingenious idea in which they have not neglected the elements that a real electric bicycle has to integrate to function.
The geometry of the circle for banner
What stands out at first glance is the design of the frame: it is not reminiscent of anything we have seen before in this area, nor when there has been a model that has based its differentiation on this part as Erik Habermann’s electric downhill bike. GEO is designed to be a standard bicycle, neither cargo nor sports, and above all functional and easy to store.
The creatives went through a large number of previous sketches until staying with the end, minimalist, geometric and with the intention of being compact. As we said, the central part is the protagonist with a frame that has the lower and upper tubes parallel because, in fact, it is the same tube that rotates 180 degrees at the front.
That circle that is embedded right between these tubes and that hooks the pedal and chain system is the structure that integrates the battery and the electrical system. On this, in the space of a semicircle, there would be a space to be able to carry a small bag and / or removable battery.
The handlebar is also quite different from what is usually seen today. They have looked for it to have an ergonomic design to adapt to the hands and eye, does not have handles for the brakes, which could be activated thanks to a touch surface.
In the center of the handlebar we see a small screen to show the information of the route (speed, driving modes, autonomy, etc.). And what is also striking is LED for lighting, being a line that takes advantage of the frontal curvature of the tube.
As we said at the beginning, it is a conceptual design and it would be quite rare to see it come true, partly because there are aspects that are not clear at all, such as the measurements of the bicycle and its adaptability to the cyclist. But that does not mean that it can serve as inspiration and that we can see something similar in the future, we have already seen other previous cases of totally groundbreaking own creations with respect to the standard that they have at least become a reality.
