ELECTRIC BIKE RANGE.
Inokim set out to make the very best E Bike solution it could. Here is the result.
Designed to be an iconic and recognized object, the inspiration is the letter ‘Z’, and the name is adopted to reflect its shape. The two ‘O’s are the wheels and the ‘Z’ is for the frame whilst the “a” is for the assisted electric element. Another inspiration is the font of the brand’s logo.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The OZOa electric bike is mainly recognized by its unique shape inspired by the letter ‘Z’ which also reminds us of a lightning strike. The frame is designed as one main continuous line connecting all the bicycle features together such as the steering, front wheel, rear motorized wheel, seat, and pedals. In addition, it holds a rear suspension within its natural shape. All parts and frame are made of aluminum profile to reduce weight. The lithium ion battery is an integral part of the frame and can be removed to recharge separately.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Not only is the shape outstanding, these electric bicycles are very comfortable to use. The seat is adjustable to different height. The rear suspension deals with road and uneven surfaces. The detachable battery allows the user to keep the bicycle locked outside whilst the battery can be charged at home or replaced by a new recharged one.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The initial design and concept started in August 2018 and will be released in June 2020. The design is made in Israel, the developments, prototypes and production is in Ningbo, China. The project is a multicultural joint venture.
FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Vehicle, Mobility and Transportation Design
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Achieving the desired shape presented production challenges. Small radii in the “Z” shaped corners preclude the use of bending material. So, we divided the frame into sections, combining them into one continuous line. We created extruded aluminum profiles to cover the length and width of the bicycle. The sections were welded together and plastic covers were added where needed. Also developed for the project were: a detachable waterproof lithium ion battery, an LCD screen (displaying data such as electric system, speed and battery condition), a brushless hub motor and a controller.
