velocity power core ebike 2012 ibdc winners from taipei   Velocity Power Core eBike, 2012 IBDC Winner from Taipei

Taiwanese designer Larry Chen’s Velocity “Power Core” eBike took 1st out of 800 entries at the 16th annual International Bicycle Design Competition (IBDC) this year.

So what made this eBike stand out from the rest of its competition? Simply put, it’s “Power Core”, which is a compact source of power designed into the frame. If you feel like manually pedaling an entire trip, the “Power Core” can be removed in order to save weight.

If its functionality didn’t nab, its design is sure to captivate. Chen’s work takes on a contemporary look that’s easy on the eyes.

With its weight-saving feature and modern design, the Velocity “Power Core” eBike is one of the more versatile ones in existence.
