Italian designer Pietro Russomanno designed the 'BKR concept bicycle' with several innovative features. The main frame is a skeleton made out of plywood with an unusual mirrored structure because wood makes the best out of its physical and natural proprieties of sustainability, malleability and, above all, elasticity. The two parts are merged like a sandwich through the use of screws “drowned” in inert rubber gaskets. This joint system, combined with use of wood as main material, reduces vibrations and absorbs shocks. The “Easy Saddle” is an original adjustment system that permits to change the height of the seat very quickly. By just pushing a button, it allows different users to ride comfortably. A specifically designed dynamo on the front wheel provides energy as well as speed/distance trip information directly to a smartphone dock on the handlebars.
