Designer Gianluca Sada has pushed the boundaries of cutting edge bike design by creating a bicycle that can be folded to the size of an umbrella. The Sada Bike is a hubless bike featuring a frame that folds away for maximum portability.
This hubless bike features a frame that folds away for maximum portability. It can even be packed in a regular-sized backpack, with others objects!
The objective of Sada Bike is to have a cycle with standard dimensions ( wheels 26 “) and have a small package during transportation. The wheels have no spokes, the minimum size in closing, foldable with a single movement, the packaging container can also be used as a backpack, are innovations of this project.
The starting point of this research is the study of art that starts from an overview of the urban individual mobility to reach, then, the folding bicycle.
The design focuses on the bike’s space-saving advantages. Unlike most bikes, which usually get their strength from the tension in the spokes, the strength of the Sada Bicycle is put into the rim. Sadabike has spoke-less wheels!
