French designer Jean‐Marc Gobillard designed an efficient next gen bicycle perfect for standing riders. Gobillard’s ‘Dreamslide’ features a special pedalling system which allows the rider to stand rather than sit.
Dreamslide adopts a unique system known as an "Adaptive Pedalling System," invented by Gobillard himself, which allows the user to pedal in a natural movement similar to jogging and optimises pedalling efficiency zone, generates acceleration amazingly, and overcomes the dead centre effects of conventional pedalling system.
