Impossible Technology has this week unveiled their new electric folding bike that weighs less than 5kg and is so small that it can be carried in a backpack when folded.
The Impossible electric folding bike is currently available to back over on the Kickstarter crowdfunding website with pledges starting from just CAD $430 or $377 or £238. Watch the video below to learn more about this tiny innovative new folding bike.
The Impossible bike is capable of travelling 12.4 mph for 45 minutes or at normal speed for up to 15.6 miles and is powered by 10 x 2900mah 10A 3.6V 44.5g batteries. Its creators explain a little more about the unique design of this next-generation folding electric bike.
“One of our main challenges was choosing an electric motor that would fit our parameters both in terms of power and in terms of weight. For the purposes of our proof of concept, we have modified an existing electric motor. However, Impossible coming from this project will be shipped with a motor completely designed by Impossible Technology. This motor will be a brushless DC motor designed and built specifically for use with Impossible.
In order to save space, we have combined the function of riding saddle and carrying case. While folded, the NeverWet-coated carrying case keeps Impossible and its charger clean and ready for use wherever you choose to store it. Even on rainy days, backers can enjoy a safe and comfortable ride. Riding Impossible is a breeze. Simply point the front wheel in the direction of travel and off you go, no pedaling necessary.”
The Impossible project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise $55,000 in pledges to make the jump from concept to production. So if you think Impossible is something you could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now via the link below.
