Velocity now is over!
FIM LAM by this design competition named ’Velocity’ is calling all creative minds of Desall to develop an innovative bicycle for city commuters and travelers of the world to move with ease and comfort. The newly designed bike shall be ultralight, foldable, ’draggable’ and portable.
Bicycles have always been one of the most liked vehicles of all times. To date, however, despite repeated attempts, their full potential is yet to be exploited as fixed dimensions have limited transportation and subsequent usage possibilities.
The aim of FIM LAM is to develop innovative solutions to serve commuters in their daily journeys from home to destination and travelers in general for their frequent trips.
..."I wish I could just drive my bike from the parking place to the metro, get on the metro then get out and drive my bike to office. It would save me time and money. I would pay serious money for this, ... but there is no real bike that folds. There are only some ugly and small foldable bikes..." Actual statement from metro passenger in Munich 2013.
The aim of this competition is to reinvent and improve the bike to serve at best all commuters, travelers, businessmen and businesswomen of the world, designing two versions of a portable bike, basic and electric version, that can be easily used by anyone for daily journeys ensuring, all the same, a true bike experience.
In particular, the bike we are asking you to design, shall be so light to allow everyone to lift, carry and use it comfortably. It will be extremely easy to carry (also packed inside a hand-luggage) and with a very captivating design that will render it a "must have" within the relevant target.
