If you love cycling in the city but feel like the maintenance is drag, then you’re going to love IKEA’s urban bicycle. According to hvg.hu, these bicycles that were designed for urban use and are stainless, oilless, and chainless, and even have automatic shifters, will arrive to the department stores all over Europe in August.
The company wrote that Ikea will launch its SLADDA bicycle at the end of this summer. The unisex bicycle, which was designed by Veryday Design Company, won an award at the Red Dot Design Award competition, and also became the “best of the best” in its category.
The company believes their bicycle to be perfect for the city, and their main principle was the creation of a bike that doesn’t need lot of maintenance and can be conveniently used in the city. It is stainless and oilless. They used gear wheels instead of chains, and automatic shifters, when creating the bicycles, which have been certified for 15 thousand kilometres.
You can easily attach complements, like luggage trailers or bicycle bags to the vehicle, due to its buildup. Bike Europe writes that the aluminum framed bicycle will be available in 26 and 28 sizes. The automatic shifter means that you won’t have to bother shifting. This, and the chainless buildup are serious developments in the bicycle industry.
The website also writes that the Ikea-bike will be sold for 499 euros for Ikea Family members and for 699 euros for non-members. The vehicles will be displayed in the middle of August in all European countries.
