University of Tokyo researchers have developed an inflatable electric bike that could change the way you travel, and it’s called Poimo (Portable and Inflatable Mobility). When not in use, it can be stored away in a backpack, but should the occasion arise, the bike can be quickly inflated with a small pump.
Don’t let its inflatable design fool you, this bike is not only comfortable, but extremely safe as well, and it can be quickly deflated again and packed away once you arrive at your destination. This is made possible due to its thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) construction, which makes it extremely customizable.
- Revolutionary Upgrade of Electric Scooters: With powerful 350W motor, Segway MAX G30P reaches to 18.6 mph and up to 40miles and max load of 220 lbs. Strives to reach new heights of performance.
- Energy efficient. Easy maneuvering and storage with a total weight of 38.6 lbs and one-click folding system.
- Upgrade Riding Experience: The mechanical and electrical Anti-Lock braking system and Front and rear wheel shock absorbers equipped with 10'' self-healing tubeless self-sealing tireensure ensure braking safety and comfort.
Once removed from the backpack, it takes just one minute to inflate Poimo to a stable operating pressure, which is approximately 40 or 50 kPa (6 or 7 psi). After inflation, you’ll have to install the rigid components, including the wheels, brushless motor, battery as well as a handlebar-integrated wireless controller, all in a 5.5 kilogram package.
