Wire Bike - High strength tensegrity frame made of carbon fiber and kevlar cables. A balance between compression and tension elements is able to offer a lighter alternative to traditional bike frames by producing a stiff structure where elements seem to float one against the other.

  • seems like this is a copy of my concept. I have made a bicycle in bamboo based on tensegrity which was my graduating project in 1999. I have posted a picture of the prototype in coroflot a long time ago. http://www.coroflot.com/public/individual_file.asp?individual_id=84714&portfolio_id=1219321&

  • Thanks for all your comments! Yes, i think about building a prototype, and I have doubts myself about lateral stability, but I didn't put any support between the rigid elements just to respect a "true" tensegrity.
