Gocycle - lightweight electric bicycle for commuters

Gocycle

Fancy a bike ride to work, but perhaps not got the energy to do it? Maybe the Gocycle is for you.

It's a lightweight electric two-wheeler that combines on-demand power, portability and 'city-specific design' for an easy and no-emission commute.

The frame and wheels are injection-moulded in a high-tech and lightweight magnesium alloy that delivers the same performance, look and feel as carbon fibre, but at significantly lower cost. In fact, the whole thing weighs just 16.2kg, making it the world’s lightest production electric bicycle.

It packs a 3-speed sequential gearbox, floating disc mechanical brakes, height-adjustable seat and a battery that last 3.5 hours after a full charge. Top speed? Around 15mph.

You can find out more here or buy one via the Design Museum store, priced at £1,495.
