RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
A spokeless bike, foldable and portable, comes to life from an idea of the designer Gianluca Sada, who made this project the subject of his graduation thesis in Engineering of the Automotive. Sadler’s goal is to design a bicycle with standard dimensions of 26 hoops and to have a very reduced bulk in the transport phase. The spokeless wheels, the reduced folded bulk, the one-move folding system, the packaging that doubles as a backpack, are the innovations of this project.

CHALLENGE:
The project of a foldable bike required several studies, centered on the reduction of weights and bulk, which brought in the past to design Bicycles with excessively small dimensions. They are provided with frame and wheels of reduced size, at the expense of stability, to privilege compactness and portability. This affects the driver’s position during the ride and the reduced wheel size is affected significantly by uneven grounds. The rigid frame makes them scarcely flexible during transport.
