A Portable Scootbike To Get You Around - Better than Walking, You Think?
SMALLER THAN A BIKE.
MORE COMFY THAN A SCOOTER..,
WHEELA is the next generation personal transport device combining the advantages of a bike and a scooter..
WHEELA is incomparably lighter and smaller than any bike and yet more comfortable than any scooter – you sit while you ride and remain seated when you pause or stop. It can be folded within one second, to be easily carried on your shoulder.
Harking back to the pre-bicycle days of the Dandy Horse, the Wheela scootbike places riders in a sitting position from which they propel themselves by kicking along the ground like a scooter. But unlike it's wooden-framed forebear, the Wheela uses modern materials, folds down for easy carrying, and offers the option of an electric motor.
THE STORY OF WHEELA BEGAN ON A BOAT.
Sailing is a way of life. You explore new destinations, meet new people, visit new places. You have limited time and very little space onboard. Every time you dock, you face the questions:.
How do you explore the port, if you cannot take your bike onboard? How do you go shopping and sightseeing when the weather is too hot for a walk?.
Dealing with these everyday transport issues, the first concept of WHEELA was born in 2011.
EASY TO RIDE..
Riding WHEELA is natural and easy..
You set WHEELA in motion simply by pushing off the ground with your feet (following the same principle as the kick scooter), while sitting. Once you have achieved sufficient speed, place your feet on the support bars and enjoy the ride. In order to stop, use the brake.
WHEELA is designed for flat, dry, and even surfaces.
WHEELA consists of an A-shaped tubular frame connected with a console. This unique design makes it quickly and easily collapsible. When folded, WHEELA requires very little space and can be carried on your shoulder with the strap belt.
