Cargo-Accommodating E-Bikes

The Cross X Gets You and Your Stuff Efficiently from A to B

— February 14, 2014 — Autos
Two of the complaints that people have about bikes are solved with the design of the Cross X. What we have here is an electric bicycle that will allow the rider to exert less physical effort; meanwhile, the frame of the conveyance integrates a handy storage compartment to keep your body, your back rack and your handlebars free of the items you've got to carry.

This ebike concept of Mithun Darji's was granted a 2013 Red Dot Design Award for its innovative and desirable features. The idea wasn't simply to outfit an existing two-wheeler with a motor and a tiny trunk, but rather to begin at square one for a fresh new frame. A secure vault was positioned in the center of the Cross X ebike and the metal structure was worked around it.
