Shapeshifting Bicycles

The Continuously Ergonomic Race Vehicle Adapts to Different Terrains

— September 13, 2012 — Lifestyle
The Continuously Ergonomic Race Vehicle (CERV) is a specially designed bicycle that can be used on just about any terrain. Although that would be enough of a selling point for some, the true genius behind this concept is that it adapts to its environment instantaneously, allowing a cyclist to travel various terrains without worry on a single ride.

Essentially, the Continuously Ergonomic Race Vehicle shapeshifts to suit different road conditions on whim. By adopting a radical bike layout, it does away with a traditional fork steering the front wheel to allow seat and handlebar movement. By doing so, it maintains the rider's posture when going uphill, downhill and more.

The Continuously Ergonomic Race Vehicle was conceived by Priority Designs in California for Cannondale and presented during the EuroBike 2012 show in Germany.
