• Rael concept bike with digital rear view mirror

  • Rael-concept-bike-1.jpg
    We’ve seen concept bicycles before. A few really compare to this one though. By Evan Solida, the Rael looks great and functions fantastically too. The bike is designed in a way making a regular carbon-fiber road-bike safer to ride. Now this one needs no mirrors and you don’t need to crane your neck to look who’s honking behind. It sports a Cervellum Hindsight digital rearview camera hidden in the seat-stays that continuously records a loop of video and if it detects a crash with its accelerometer, it keeps recording for ten seconds and then stops, keeping the footage as evidence! Somewhat of a blackbox for a bicycle, the bike also sports a 3.5-inch transflective (viewable in sunlight) LCD screen mounted on the handlebars working as a digital rear view mirror.


    Also, the brakes and handle bars have been redesigned, stepping away from conformist designs and sporting Shimano’s Di2 electronic-shifters. An amazing bike design indeed!
