Fernando Alonso and his 3D printed ebike

by 4

Two-time F1 champ Fernando Alonso recently sold his ‘sustainable athletics’ brand (Kimoa) to SimplyEV and together they’re producing a fully customisable carbon fibre e-bike powered by 3D printing firm Arevo.

The e-bike will retail from $3,999. US only at the moment we’re afraid.

We don’t have a whole load of info other than that. But everyone likes to see bikes that look a bit different to the norm don’t they? So here it is.

Perhaps the most eye-catching aspect of the bike is the lack of a seat tube. Presumably this has been done to give the ride a certain amount of vertical compliance for rider comfort.

We’ll hopefully bring you a bit more info when the bike has completed its official launch during this week’s Formula One Crypto.com Miami Grand Prix 2022.

Press release: “The all-new Kimoa E-Bike powered by Arevo touts a true unibody construction, 3D-printed in a single pass of continuous carbon fiber thermoplastic composite. Unlike other carbon fiber bikes whose frames are glued and bolted together using dozens of individual parts and fabricated from previous-generation thermoset composite materials, the Kimoa bike frame is constructed without joints or glue for seamless strength. Its next-generation thermoplastic materials make it extremely impact resistant, remarkably lightweight, and most importantly – incredibly sustainable.”

Fernando Alonso: “At the heart of Kimoa’s DNA is our drive to create a more sustainable lifestyle. The Kimoa E-Bike powered by Arevo gives people a curated step towards that active and sustainable lifestyle, tailored specifically for each rider.”

    That frame and fork look identical to the dodgy Superstrata one on Indiegogo, both made by Arevo apparently: https://road.cc/content/tech-news/superstrata-3d-printed-bike-many-backers-disappointed-281301

    I’d love to see a huck to flat video of that bike.

    I think he should stick to F1!

    I think he should go back to Indycar, or give Nascar a try.

    A lot of “modern” bike designs seem to not have a seat tube but for no particular reason. They are not using the space, bringing wheel forward or anything else and just seem to remove it because it looks different. Bring back the seat tube.
