Orbitrec 3D Printed Bike @ CES 2016
Peter Donnell / 5 years ago
The world of 3D printing never ceases to amaze us here at eTeknix. While many still think the world of 3D printing is nothing but plastic cups and simple objects, the reality couldn’t be any further from those early roots. The Orbitrec is printed from Titanium, giving it incredible strength and the unique design allows it to remain lightweight, making it great for multiple terrain types.
Crash the bike? The smart connect features will text friends to alert them. This is great if you’re riding in a group, as you can’t always see all the members of your team. Sensors worked into the body of the bike will provide you with an analysis of your riding and environment, allowing you to fine tune your performance over time.
GPS, smart connected features and more don’t come cheap though, so expect to pay North of $7k for the new bike. That’s not too bad given the spec, but it’s clearly for the riding enthusiast.
