in an attempt to redefine the way we see travel through urban mobility and compact transportation, kolelinia announces the commercial release of halfbike, a new kind of personal vehicle designed with the user’s experience in mind. its smooth pedal assist provides a remarkably quick and fun way of city-based travel; the platform presents an innovative rider position, placing the user upright and higher up than a traditional bike.

small enough to take onboard public transport for longer trips, the halfbike is compact enough for an elevator, light enough to carry up stairs, and fits into spaces too small for a regular bicycle. locally produced by hand with high-quality materials and components, it features a lightweight laser-cut aluminum frame and intricately crafted impregnated set of plywood handlebars.
