Kolelinia announced the commercial release of the ‘Halfbike II’, a new kind of personal vehicles designed with user’s experience in mind, through its Kickstarter campaign. Kolelinia’s team took the core driving mechanism of a classical bicycle (a wheel connected to a crankset) but redesigned pretty much everything else. The result is a vehicle that trains your balance and reflexes in a new way. Not only on a physical level but it also affects the way you perceive movement and enhances your senses. The standing rider position is essential for the Halfbike. It brings you closer to natural walking and it’s the only way to control the vehicle with your whole body and not just your hands. “Halfbike is a sort of an extension to the body that allows a smooth and intuitive ride” explain Martin Angelov and Mihail Klenov, founder of Kolelinia.

Halfback II is available for purchase now on Kickstarter with a starting price of $349 USD for the limited edition.
