2019 shortlists

Bike+ Titanium
by Vello

Shortlisted for product design of the year at Dezeen Awards 2019, Bike+ Titanium by Vello is the first bike to combine electric, self-charging and folding features.

With an intelligent energy recuperation system, used for Formula 1 cars, and fast and easy folding, the light weight bicycle is designed for urban cycling. The Vello Bike+ charges as it travels by converting kinetic energy generated by the rider into electricity, which can then be used to help cyclists uphill. Vello launched the bicycle on Kickstarter, where it reached 200 per cent of its funding target.
