About Slider project
The concept of the Slider is based on the idea of creating a user friendly yet fashionable folding bicycle for women. The main attempt is to develop a better structure that will allow simplification of the bicycle utilization in both normal and folded conditions. This is the main issue that city bike female users request to be updated. As a best solution, Paul Hsu designed the main frame in the shape of diamond that together with principle of the gravitational field equilibrium will significantly decrease time and force applied for bike folding. Actual size of the folded bike is a equal to suitcase dimensions and handlebars can be used to drag it around. Moreover, the unfolding process only takes one movement since the gravity would give strength for further bicycle expanding.
