You haven’t see flying cars zipping across the city’s sky and so, it shouldn’t surprise you that bicycles, electric or not, still look largely like your grandfather’s bicycle. However, that’s set to change with Cyclotron Bike Spokeless Smart Cycle. As the product name subtly hints, this pedal-assist bicycle has a little bit of Tron element to it – thanks to its hubless design with integrated lights. Granted, you can’t ride it flat on your stomach like the Light Cycle, but still, it is quite a sight to be hold and clearly, radically different from today’s bicycles.

4-wheel Power-assist Electric Bicycle Looks Like A Real Life Car Caricature

What you see here is a bicycle. No, really. It is a bicycle, an electric bicycle to be exact. Built by Swedish dude Mikael Kjellman, PopRide, as it is called, was born out of the desire to have the practicality of bicycle with the comfort and convenience of car. Actually, it is more like a pedal-powered kart because it has four wheels, but that argument is pretty irrelevant. The point is, this unique transportation gets you from point A to point B by means of your own leg power which provides some form of exercise much needed by urbanites.

Ono Bikes’ Archont Electro Bike Is Crazy Fast And Insanely Beautiful

Chopper-like bicycles have been around for ages, perhaps, born out as an alternative for the real deal.

Stretching to nearly 3 meter long, Archont sports the familiar chopper easy ride silhouette, but that’s where the similarity ends. The bike is built around a tubular frame, smooth flowing and appropriately curved to achieve a minimal, skeletal look.

Daymak Introduces Beast D Electric Bicycle with Dual 500W Motor, Calls it an Electric ATV

When you are hell bent in venturing into the woods, an ATV appears to be the perfect option. But that’s assuming that the woods is generous enough to provide you the space your ATV needs, or you could go with a two-wheel electric all-terrain vehicle, like the Daymak The Beast D Off-Road Electric ATV that could get past the narrowest space imposed by the trees. But wait. Isn’t that the same Beast we saw on Kickstarter sometime last year? Yup. It sure is. But that was an electric bicycle, isn’t it? Again, yes, but the Canadian outfit’s new iteration is said to be a basher of sort and is destined for off-road use only and they are calling it the two-wheel all-terrain vehicle.

This is Impossible Folding Electric Bike and it Fits Inside a Regular Backpack

How small should a foldable electric bike be to be considered really portable? How about one that fits inside a regular backpack? Sounds impossible?

In this way, it helps to distribute the rider’s weight evenly across the bike’s entire carbon fiber and steel frame.

Chainless INgSOC Hybrid Bike

the Chainless INgSOC Hybrid Bike you see here may well be another proof that alien lifeforms might be walking among us. i certainly hope they, designers Edward Kim and Benny Cemoll, weren’t playing host to the creatures that we fear and curious about when they came up with the Chainless INgSOC Hybrid Bike. alien-looking is not the only thing this futuristic bicycle is about; the technologies that go into it is, well, almost alien-like too. the bike combines the aerodynamic shapes of triathlon designs, flexible handling of traditional bikes, and an advanced hybrid drive train (and that includes, pedal power which appears to be rather earthly), resulting in a hybrid bike that looks like no other.
