Impossible: World’s Smallest Folding Electric Bike

Jan 28, 2019

Category: Rides

If you though backpacks were destined to always hold nothing more than laptops, books, and ancient packs of Pepperoni Pizza Combos, we’re pleased to tell you you’re wrong. Like, electric bicycle-wrong.

Impossible is “the world’s smallest folding bike,” and it’s one that can fit into a backpack at that. At 13 pounds, the bike’s frame is made primarily of carbon fiber, while the connecting box in the middle of the frame is solid steel. The seat and handlebars are at similar heights, and it’s the frame’s unique design that promises to make sure the bike spreads the rider’s weight equally. As it’s built right now, the bike can carry up to 180 pounds, but the makers are counting on boosting that number with future iterations. It can reach a top speed of 12.4 mph for 45 minutes, or you can take it easy and get up to 15.6 miles before needing a charge. The project crushed its goal on Kickstarter, so you can expect to see Impossible hit the retail scene sometime during 2015.
