Bjarke Ingels Designs a Bike
Designed in a collaboration between Bjarke Ingels of Kibisi and Biomega, OKO is an electric, or e-bike, designed for the highest performance, whilst accommodating a busy urban lifestyle. The OKO is a uniquely lightweight and highly practical city ‘pedelec,’ its carbon frame cleverly conceals its inner machinery workings, including a battery, motoring and necessary wiring.
This super lightweight, yet super strong, carbon bike comes fitted with integrated front and rear mudguards, a natural extension of the original diamond frame design. Combining the very best materials, Biomega also stays true to their heritage in that the bike is chainless, and is fitted with an ingenious carbon belt drive.
The OKO appearance takes inspiration from traditional fuel powered two wheeled motorized vehicles, whereas the OKO is fitted with a super effective (and importantly lightweight) electrical power bank instead.
Bringing a state of the art and efficient E-bike to the market has been an international undertaking, and has tapped in to talent from Denmark, France, South Korea and China, meaning that the OKO is developed for the global urban commuter, wherever those streets may be.
