inflatable fairing

inflatable fairing by mohsen saleh from italy

designer's own words:

Inflatable Fairing is a design that aims to persuade bikers to use their bike on a daily basis, regardless of the weather. Depending on the location of a country on the earth’s surface, there are several months of the year during which there might be rain fall, snow or cold weather. This design is a lightweight temporary shield to protect the cyclist from the rain and the cold , in addition to with all the advantages of fairings, in addition to the fact that the user can always choose whether or not to use it. This particular shape is taken from the rain droplets and is especially designed for PRO-STRAIGHT bikes in harmony with the idea of an aerodynamic bicycle; yet it could be adapted for conventional upright bikes, recumbent bikes and motorbikes as well.
