Letting the sun do the hard work

Letting the sun do the hard work

We have followed the rapid development in bicycle design over the past couple of years and this one is truly a beauty. This solar-electric bike has a carbon fibre body rather than tubes allowing a technology screen and lighting systems to be incorporated into its form. The bike is designed and handmade in Italy and can be customised with real wood, leather and accessories such as bags and helmets, to make each product unique.

Be warned though after customising it will set you back about the same amount of money as an oldish second hand car but of course it delivers a much higher “feel good” eco factor than a gas guzzling second hand banger. The combination of solar and electric power also ensures you won’t be left high and dry when the suns not shining.
