Wheely smart

The Bes­tian­era—ital­ian for black beast—is a high-tech hy­brid bi­cy­cle that’s equally at home in the velo­drome and on the road, making it the per­fect choice for the sporty city slicker. It’s a sim­ple task of just a few min­utes to trans­form the beast, used in its rac­ing form by the likes of Ital­ian track cham­pion Gi­airo ermeti, for the road—sim­ply change the wheels and front fork. the ki­netic en­ergy re­cov­ery sys­tem stores elec­tric­ity gen­er­ated from brak­ing to power a mo­tor that can pro­pel the bike from 0-30km/h in just three ro­ta­tions of the ped­als and take the hard slog out of hill climb­ing. With its car­bon-fi­bre frame, an in­cred­i­bly sexy de­sign by ar­chi­tect romolo stanco, the bi­cy­cle weighs less than 10kg. Its high-tech al­loys also re­duce vi­bra­tions through the sad­dle and han­dle­bars, so you’ll ar­rive at the of­fice in per­fect form for that 9am meet­ing.
