There are no pedals on this bicycle – and you don’t sit on a seat. Cycling enthusiasts, prepare to challenge yourself in a whole new way with the Fliz, a bike that fits like a harness to help riders ‘scoot’ along on their feet.
Made with a glass and carbon fiber frame, the Fliz fits on top of the rider with straps that secure over the shoulders, rib cage and waist. This harness is custom-built for each rider to ensure a proper fit, and includes a five-point fastener.
So what happens when you’re going downhill? Once riders gain momentum, there’s no fear of dragging your feet painfully along the pavement; there are special treads on the rear wheels to place your feet when the wheels are doing the work.
The designers say, “The prior aim of developing FLIZ was to bring a completely new driving experience to everyone. Based on the very first bike – the ‘Laufrad’ – we created a velocipede concept of healthy, ecological mobility in overcrowded urban space. Its laminated, innovative frame with 5 point belt system provides a comfortable, ergonomic ride between running and biking.”
