BiXeGear Debuts “Alternating Pedaling Bicycle”

Monday, November 16, 2015

Italian bicycle company BiXeGear has debuted their first product, the world’s first alternating pedaling bicycle.

Inspired by Albert Einstein’s famous words that “life is like riding a bicycle, you must keep moving,” the company set out to design a new, better type of pedaling system. The BiXegear’s  allows riders to continue building forward momentum even when pedaling bicycles. No matter which way you pedal, the system provides the same power and torque in each revolution.

The bike is a blast to ride, and could help keep you riding longer. BiXeGear reduces fatigue and wear and tear on joints and boosts performance over long distances. You can also easily switch the backwards function on or off with the touch of a button. The BiXeGear is designed to take on any type of path, from tough terrain to smooth paved roads. 

To learn about BiXegear or the “Advanced Pedaling System”, visit them on Indiegogo.
