Solar Powered Moof Bike Lights the Way
Posted By Jorge Chapa On January 13, 2009 @ 3:30 pm In Green Transportation | 10 Comments
The Moof bike by Amsterdam-based designer Ties Carlier features a striking tubular form that certainly draws one’s eye, but what really caught our attention was their smart solution to a rather simple problem. Rather than attaching clunky (and easily stolen) led lights  to the bike, the design elegantly incorporates two solar powered lamps  within the bike itself!
Many attendees at this year’s CES  were intrigued by the bold lines of the Moof bike being shown at Areaware’s  booth. The single-speed bike boasts leather seats and handles in addition to an aluminum frame that contains two solar powered lights  (one at the front, and one at the back). Its striking spartan form makes quite the statement and it certainly looks built to stand the test of time.
The bike will set you back $500, and will be available soon from Areaware.
