Crisp Transparent Bike Design, Aircraft-Grade Plastic Used For Frame Build
We’ve seen some great concepts floating around the internet this past year, like the all-cardboard bike that’ll perhaps hit the market this year. Based in Germany, DesignAffairs has primed a brand new concept titled Clarity Bike.
Clarity Bike is constructed of Trivex, a transparent polymer commonly used in helicopter and fighter jet windscreens. With Trivex a lightweight material that can hold up against huge impacts and withstand extreme temperatures, it seems a worthy experiment for a bike frame. Granted, there’s still a few kinks to be worked out in the frame, like the strange geometry and lack of a headset (or brake for that matter?), but DesignAffairs is definitely on to something fresh. The frame’s injection-molded and can be produced at a relatively low price point if taken to production.
