IKEA the Swedish furniture company has their eyes firmly set on sustainability concerns and have therefore moved towards personal transportation issues.
Their new Sladda bike is packed with accessories allowing its customization. For instance; the front rack can be altered for bags, the same at the rear! Its saddle bags can transform into a backpacks and there’s also a trailer for serious transportation needs. The Sladda bike has thus won numerous design awards including a Red Dot Design Award.
It’s a simple strong design, employing a lightweight aluminium frame, making it extremely portable for carrying on public transportation. The bike uses an automatic two-gear system allowing riders to switch between depending on how fast they are pedaling. It also features a rust- and oil-free belt drive plus disc brakes.
You’ll soon be able to collect your new IKEA Sladda bike (starting February 2017, in the US). Or you can order order it directly on their US website.
