Mobility designers Springtime (Amsterdam) developed an E-bike for a very specific target group: students. Result: adam. – a bike that is adaptive to 24-hour student life.
adam. is a 20-inch minimal single-speed bike that is built to survive city use. A front wheel hub motor that is fully incorporated in the front wheel assists the bike when needed. The detachable battery is placed on the handle bar and doubles as a portable speaker and power bank.
During your daily commute, you can make use of the electric drive, and use your phone for navigation, reading incoming messages, or play music. In school, take out the battery and you have a power bank to charge your laptop or phone, and play music during the breaks. In the evening, simply leave home the battery and you have a rock solid naked bicycle to enter the nightlife. The electric drive motor remains safely integrated in the wheel.
