Impossible Technology just unveiled a bike commuter’s dream – an electric bike that can fold up small enough to fit inside a backpack! The Impossible Bicycle ensures even weight distribution for a comfortable ride, it’s powered by rechargeable batteries, and it can travel 45 minutes on a single charge.
The Impossible Bike’s sleek white frame is made from lightweight carbon fiber, which makes it easy to carry but is durable and strong. The components connect together at a central box made from steel, which also acts as the load bearing part of the bike. A small seat unfolds and aligns with the adjustable handlebars, making the bike easy to use by anyone of any size.
The bike’s disc motor may not be powerful, but it can take its rider on a coasting 12.4 miles per hour, and can be amped up to a maximum speed of 15.6 miles per hour. The best part of riding the Impossible Bike is there’s no need to ever find a safe parking space! The components fold up around the central connecting box into an impossibly small piece that fits inside the circular seat, which in turn fits snugly in a back pack.
Fans can get their hands on an early model via Impossible’s enormously successful Kickstarter campaign. In the future, the company hopes to create a more customizable bike, in a variety of colors.
