Packed in a backpack

This hubless bike features a frame that folds away for maximum portability. It can even be packed in a regular-sized backpack, with others objects!

No spoke!

The design focuses on the bike’s space-saving advantages. Unlike most bikes, which usually get their strength from the tension in the spokes, the strength of the Sada Bicycle is put into the rim. Sadabike has spoke-less wheels!

Foldable

Sadabike is a hubless bike which can fold up to the size of an umbrella with one movements, making it perfect for commuters who need to make lots of short trips.

"You never change things by fighting the existing reality.

To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete."

Non è certo la prima, ma per ora è la più innovativa tra le bici super-trasportabili. La storia delle pieghevoli risale addirittura al 1878, quando il britannico William Grout decise ripensare il mezzo di spostamento per renderlo compatibile con il trasporto a mano. Da allora è passato più di un secolo di piccoli cambiamenti, ma nulla di veramente rivoluzionario: il ripiegamento era sempre più o meno macchinoso e la guida impacciata dalle dimensioni del mezzo. Il trade-off tra l’usabilità e la trasportabilità è rimasto un problema fino a pochissimo tempo fa, quando un giovane ingegnere di Battipaglia trapiantato per gli studi a Torino si è messo in testa di fare onore a Leonardo da Vinci.

It could be the ultimate bike for commuter – with full sized wheels, yet able to fold into a package the same size as an umbrella.

Questo periodo storico, nel mondo della bicicletta, è caratterizzato dalla ricerca della semplicità sia nel disegno che nell’utilizzo. Il luogo dove tutti immaginano che la bici venga più usata è la città, dove gli spazi sono compressi e la versatilità un fattore importante. Ecco perché una delle chiavi di lettura è quella della piegabilità, e le folding bike stimolano le menti dei designer. Così è successo anche all’ingegnere torinese Gianluca Sada, che ha prototipato la sua Sada Bike proprio con queste caratteristiche. Assieme alla sua bici ve ne facciamo vedere molte altre, tutte chiacchieratissime e futuribili.

Sada Bike Skills

The idea of a folding bike has undertaken numerous studies that focus on reducing the weight and dimensions which have led, however, to realize too small sized bicycles. They have a small frame and wheels at the expense of stability, for the sake of compactness and portability during transport. The minimum size of the frame, in fact, penalizes the rider position while driving and the small size of the wheels significantly are affected by variations in terrain. On the other hand, the traditional bicycles, avoid these problems, but the rigid chassis makes them inflexible during transport on public transport. The objective of this project is to have a cycle with standard dimensions ( wheels 26 “) and have a small package during transportation. The wheels have no spokes, the minimum size in closing, the system folder with the single movement, the packaging container can also be used as a backpack, are innovations of this script.
