The conceptual 'Banana 88' bicycles have been created by Rice Mak as a series of solutions for parents who are looking for a way to ride around town on their own terms, while also offering their child to do the same. The smaller of the two is a balance bike for children aged three to six to help them get comfortable with riding, which could eliminate the need for training wheels. The larger version has an electric design for parents to use to zip around town on the last mile of their commute or to be stored in a vehicle trunk for use at anytime.
The conceptual 'Banana 88' bicycles both have a similar design language to connect riders young and old to one another through transportation aesthetics.
