3D printing has changed the way consumers acquire everything from home goods to footwear, making it possible for designs to be customized and in many cases, printed on-site at a retail location—Arevo's 3D-printed bike offers a similar solution, as its parts can be made locally rather than shipped.

The 3D-Printed carbon fiber eBike is made by a robot, which helps to keep costs down and offer a reduced environmental footprint and manufacturing process that's more efficient to the way most carbon fiber bikes are made. The machine used for making the 3D-printed bike boasts the ability to print in all dimensions, which makes it capable of creating large, strong objects. Arevo's use of a thermoplastic embedded with carbon fiber makes for an ultra-durable bike made of a material that can be repurposed at the end of its lifecycle.
