An E-Bike From The Future

If you dream it, you can do it. Do you dream of an ebike with retractable storage right between your legs? Done. Do you dream of a bike with a built in lock on the handle bars? Done. Do you dream of a foldable bike that looks sleek? Done. Do you dream of headlights that double as Bluetooth speakers? Done.

Your dream came true when designers took ebike dreaming to a whole new level with the futuristic looking (and functioning) nCycle.

nCycle is the brainchild of a NYC-based design and development company Behance. The company decided to rethink ebikes by “problem solving from ground up and integrating it into the aesthetics.” And then nCycle was born.

Behance claims that the design of nCycle addresses typical ebike issues of expense, inflexibility, weight, and general hideousness. While the pictures look awfully chic, mum’s the word from Behance on the cost or poundage of nCycle. If we’re honest with ourselves, we know that fancy-pants bicycles (electric or not) cost a pretty penny, so don’t hold out for a bargain-basement price when you start shopping for your very own nCycle.

The nitty-gritty details of the nCycle aren’t available yet, but you can check out the light-weight (at 43.3 lbs) ebike Audi is peddling. If futuristic isn’t your style, there’s always the Faraday Porteur ebike that looks a tad more vintage.

Having nCycle as the ride for an ebike sharing program like the one at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, is probably a pipe dream. But don’t go thinking that seeing ebikes zoom around your neighborhood is a pipe dream; this report expects bikes to exceed 47 million by 2018. The question is how many, if any, will be mounting nCycle?
