Luca Schieppati – Ciclotte [update]
Ciclotte has already been published on Design !ndex, but we are happy to show you today its latest evolutions and renders.
Completely developed with innovative solutions and realized by using high-tech materials like carbon, glass fibres and steel, Ciclotte is a product entirely made in Italy, created by the designer Luca Schieppati, whose inspiring project (Ciclò) is now part of the permanent collection of the Triennial Design Museum of Milan (together with Ferrari’s car, Riva Yachts and Castiglioni lamps, just to make a few examples). Ciclotte not only is the only design exercise-bike existing in the market and an exclusive furniture complement, but it is also unique under a technological point of view since it is the first exercise bike to use an electro-magnetic resistance system with epicycloids transmission, and it has been recently awarded by the Province of Milan as “Life Enhancer” and “Fitness product of the year” by FIBO. The range of the line is composed by the classic version in carbon and glass fiber and the one for yachts, while beginning from 2012 we have launched a new version with frame in steel and a kit of accessories for iPad and iPhone package which is able to integrate Ciclotte with an iPad or iPhone in order to simulate a ride on a road or a path/trail, or just to watch a movie and listen to the music.
