Some time ago the British inventor Sir Clive Sinclair unveiled his A-Bike concept, expanding upon his previous invention of the ZX computers that were launched back in the 1980’s.

And now the project has been updated for the modern world and launched in the form of a Kickstarter project.

Using the same design as the original A-Bike concept, but upgraded to use electricity, the project claims that they have designed the world’s lightest and most compact folding bike, designed with a telescopic arm, it can be folded down to make it extremely portable, and even better, the creators of the bike say that it takes just 10 seconds to fold down.

The electric power assistance also means that riding the bike is easier for up to 15 miles, this will kick in when its sensors detect that you are slowing down, for example if you are on a hill it will automatically kick in the power assistance when you need it most.

On top of all that the A-Bike Electric has an enclosed bike chain that means you don’t get dirty, and there is a detachable quick charge 24V battery that can be taken out from the bike and charged easily.

Check it out at the source link below, you can back it now from £449 to grab an early-bird deal on the bike. The project is looking for £40,000 in funding to get the A-Bike going.
