In response to a competition set by the International Climate Conference in Copenhagen, RAFAA architecture and design submitted a futuristic project for an innovative urban bike sharing system.
The features of the e-bike include a fully integrated lightweight aluminium frame which incorporates the 26v lithium battery with a range of 50 km, a GPS and WI-LAN system which monitors the usage, availability and location of the bikes. Emphasis has been placed on the storage and recharging depos to be situated throughout the city, including underground, suspended and vertical stations which maintain visibility and accessibility without a visual overload for the estimated 25.000 bikes within the envisioned sustainable urban transport system. The goal of the project is to increase bike users from 37% to 50% by the year 2015.
