Three-wheeld covered electrical bicycle

Weather resistant, green alternative to current car-sharing systems.

Solution description

The SHARK-Bike is a three-wheeld covered electrical bicycle. Therefore it is a weather resistant, green alternative to current car-sharing systems.

The SHARK-Bike aims to reduce cities' CO2 emissions as well as air and sound pollution. Because it combines the best aspects of a car and a bicycle the SHARK-Bike is the perfect fit for sightseeing tourist on rainy days, windy days, winter days and for transporting your bags from A to B. When you are travelling and exploring cities together with you best buddy you can share one two-seated SHARK-Bike for only a fraction of the price of shared cars.

In Austia there are about 4.4 Mio. cars about a quarter beeing the second car in one household. If we replaced all those second cars with SHARK-Bikes we would reduce Austria’s CO2 emissions by 1.24 Mio. tons per year. That is about 7% of Austria’s CO2 reduction agreed upon in the Paris Climate Agreement.
