The Halfbike makes a journey into town into a fun, fitness friendly pleasure trip for crew.
We love this Jog/Cycle hybrid, so check out what the team behind the crowd-funded phenomenon have to say:
“Halfbike is a new type of vehicle to awaken your natural instinct to move. It combines biking and running. We took the core driving mechanism of a classical bicycle (a wheel connected to a crankset) but redesigned pretty much everything else. The result is a completely new experience! The standing rider position is essential for the Halfbike. It brings you closer to natural walking and you control the vehicle with your whole body, not just your hands. A vehicle that trains your balance and reflexes in a new way. Not only on a physical level but it also affects the way you perceive movement and enhances your senses. We want to enable people to explore new horizons and have fun, and we truly believe that a Halfbike can get you there!
Halfbike is both compact and light, so you can take it practically everywhere with you. Since it’s foldable, it’s allowed onboard in most public transit systems. When folded, a Halfbike fits easily in the trunk of even a small car, under a desk at work or in an overcrowded closet. You can put it inside a lift and even easily carry it when you need to take the stairs, for it is under 9 kg / 20 pounds and quite small. Basically a Halfbike would fit into most spaces too small for a regular bike.
The feeling of riding a Halfbike is really nothing like riding a bicycle but believe us, you’ll certainly enjoy exactly that difference. If we must point out the key advantages we would probably go for the fun of riding, its lightness and compactness.
Ride outside the box”…
