DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Minimbike. The art of fitness.

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Exercise bicycle

INSPIRATION:
Minimbike flees from the mechanical and impersonal stereotypes that make up the vast majority of this type of exercising bicycles. Its design tries to surprise and empathize with users. A beautiful product to be placed in our daily spaces, which integrates technology, ergonomics, functionality and efficiency.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
We can highlight its continuous and compact chassis made of a single piece of plastic material. This is an aesthetic and also structural value solution. Protagonist elements such as the forks and the mechanical drum allow a good stability, but it also happens to be his most striking features, turning the Minimbike into an object of desire, and with a great sculptural value.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Minimbike's main innovation is focused on its production, but also on how user manages the exercise. Each user has full control of the bike by using an application that only needs to be installed on his or her smartphone or personal tablet. It allows to design the training taking into account the objectives. The RPM, calories, distance and pedal resistance are controlled. The user experience goes one step further and the brand has created a space where experiences, tricks and challenges are shared, forming a solid and healthy community for all Minimfit friends and lovers.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in September 2016 in Barcelona/Spain and finished in January 2018 in Barcelona/Spain

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Minimbike is designed entirely; from its pedals to its height control regulators. The main body is manufactured by cold molding, in a single piece of plastic in which subsequently the other elements are assembled. This production system facilitates the bike’s production, because it is fast and it guarantees a high quality of finishes with less resources. This is a technological milestone that, with an utility patent, is one of the great technological innovations of the product. The handlebar, which is made of integral polyurethane, has a very soft and pleasant touch and its design allows several positions of use. The saddle is upholstered in a single piece of plastic leather, which has the same intention of minimizing in order to achieve a compact product.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
1150 mm 470 mm 1270 mm and 50 kg.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
In therms of tecnhology, many of the analogous products incorporate, in an integrated and indivisible way, the telematic control. This fact causes rapidly the obsolescence of the product because its update is often complex. Minimbike has gone a step further and appart from proposing a new radical language for the product, it also externalizes the parameterization by transferring its control to digital personal devices such as common smartphones and tablets.

CHALLENGE:
Our challenge has been definitely to design and manufacture a static bicycle that, not only mechanically and electronically satisfies the current technological needs of the sector but also its aesthetic proposal allows the product to perfectly share the user’s usual space becoming part of its routine. The product has a sculptural language that invites you to place it in domestic spaces where it acquires great prominence and relevance. The result has been possible by designing the bicycle to be manufactured in a single piece of plastic that allows this organic language and a continuous and controlled shape.
