Electric Gi FlyBike bicycle can be folded up in seconds

gi flybikeThis Gi Flybike bicycle is a Kickstarter-funded electric bicycle that has been tailored to the demands of city riding with a quick-folding mechanism and remote locking system.

The Gi FlyBike bicycle only requires one motion – which breaks the bike into two sections – to be folded up.
The bike also automatically locks once its rider is five metres away.

It weighs just 17 kilograms, and can be controlled using a smartphone app that lets users lock or unlock the vehicle, and share passcodes with friends who want to borrow it.

The app can also be used to turn safety lights on, access GPS and charge the phone using energy generated by pedalling.

The vehicle, which has been created by entrepreneurs Lucas Toledo and Eric Sevillia and industrial designer Agustín Agustinoy, has been designed with city bikers in mind.
gi flybikeThe trio created the bicycle after witnessing national transport strikes in their home country of Argentina.
They decided to update the traditional bike design for commuters looking for alternative ways to get around the city quickly.

The vehicle’s frame is made from recyclable aluminium, and a battery-powered electric engine assists riders with three adjustable levels.

The trio requested $75,000 (£56,000) of support through Kickstarter, and received $426,980 (£322,000) in total in 2015.
They plan for the bikes to retail at $1,990 (£1,500) while in pre-sale, and $2,290 (£1,700) thereafter.
