Gi Flybike makes Commuting Smarter
By Soumyalipa Das.
Yes! A bike that folds and folds in just one second. It’s hard to believe but it’s true. A start-up by three friends from Argentina, have come up with innovative idea after a public transportation strike in the country. The ‘Gi Flybike‘ has made commuting smarter.
The Gi Flybike is a smart, electric, maintenance free bike and is made from ultra lightweight aircraft grade aluminium and weighs 37 pounds. This allows for easy folding and transporting it during travel. Now, it’s easy to carry our bike wherever we want to go.
So how is it different from a normal bike? Gi Flybike is technologically advanced and rides 40 miles (60 km) in a single battery (LifePo4) charge. It folds into half in just a second, has a smart lock system which activates when the bike detects you are 15 feet away. It has a smart phone charger and GPS navigation system. The bike has puncture-proof tires and automatic safety-smart lights along with built-in rear lights. The bike comes with an app where one can share their bike unlock passwords with their friends.
All and all it’s an amazingly smart bike with great features making it the must buy for 2016. The bike is currently available on Kickstarter for a pre-order price of $2,290, cheaper than the normal price of a bike. Visit www.kickstarter.com for details about the bike and its advanced features.
