The Saline Bird is an interesting bike that one would assume to be inspired by the skiing sport. As Yanko Design points out, the rider takes a skier-like position when seated on this badass bike, so as to minimize air resistance and increase speed.

Designed by Charles-Edouard Berche, Ugo Spagnolo , Adrien Fuinesl, Frédéric Dobbelstein and Jean-Philippe Paries, the Saline Bird was specifically designed for quirky speed record-holders Les Triplettes de Bonneville.

The speedy Saline Bird features a carbon fiber frame that holds the air tanks and other elements, so as to provide a lighter and faster ride. You can even add a nice leather body panel to the bike for an aerodynamic finish. Stats for Ski-Inspired Bikes Trending: Older & Buzzing
