Startup development company Cyclotron is looking to the future of public transportation with their innovative bicycle design. The Cyclotron bike, which is currently in development, will take advantage of a wide variety of new and advanced technologies to create a seamless cycling experience for the user, while offering a more intuitive and safer experience for both the cyclist and those around them. The bike sports a unique lack of spokes, along with solid polymer airless tires, which will be powered by a self-charging battery pack located in the bike’s frame. The bicycle will even contain built-in LED lighting, illuminating the user’s path in dark environments as well as making the bike visible on night roads and dangerous areas. The bike features a sport mode for speed and performance, and a comfort mode for a more relaxed cruising experience, and will be able to hook up to smartphones to allow tracking of various measurements and control the bike’s various features. The Cyclotron bike is scheduled to release in summer 2017, so look forward to a fun biking experience next year!
