ORBITREC is a 3D-printed bicycle with an array of sensors built directly into the frame. While the concept of a 3D-printed bicycle is not exactly new, Cerevo has gone a step further by integrating smart technology into the bike itself.

ORBITREC is a 3D-printed bicycle with high-tech features built into its sintered titanium and carbon-fiber frame. The sensors in the frame are designed for sending and receiving information about the rider as they move about. The information is then logged in the cloud and sent directly to the rider's smartphone. The sensors log everything from temperature to velocity to provide the rider with an easily accessible record of their movements. The addition of Bluetooth and ANT+ connectivity also allows the rider to control additional features such as setting their lights to turn on at a certain time or sending a text to a specific number in the event of an accident.

With its lightweight frame and high-tech features, ORBITREC is ideal for cyclists looking for more control over their bike.
