2018 - 2019, Golden A' Vehicle, Mobility and Transportation Design Award Winner
Inspiration
The bicycle has it's inspiration for the user insights. It makes perfectly sense to separate the battery from the bicycle. You only use the battery when you need it. This bike is a hybrid between an regular electric bicycle and a normal bicycle. Both user scenarios is in place with this product.
Creativity
Diavelo Ibrido Veloce creates a new design approach to exclusive electric bikes. All the electric parts are integrated and hidden in the crank and in the carbon frame. The Diavelo Ibrido Veloce has everything modern design is looking for. The design is both holistic, futuristic, artistic and sporty all at the same time. The new autoclave carbon materials makes this electric bicycle very light compared to other electric bicycles. The battery is carried separately in a backpack that matches.
Design Challenges
The most critical challenge was to get the weight down to a record breaking level. The electric bicycle has a race bike dna and must therefor be light. But having the added weight of a battery and a motor was the most difficult challenge. The way we have solved the challenges is by using untraditional materials for an electric bike such as carbon and kevlar instead of metal and alloy
Production Technology
The bicycle is realized with an autoclave production method. the material is carbon. With autoclave the frame is extra strong and durable but still very light.
