Digital design and visualisation through to proven product.
The NOAH bike.
In 2014 at Bespoked we exhibited our NOAH system, a showcase piece that demonstrated our ability to create a new bicycle design and deliver it both digitally and physically. This bike featured as one of BikeRadar's 5 must-see stands at the London show. With a large proportion of our work being non-disclosure we decided to produce something that was ours from start to finish. Whilst alternative suspension systems don't have a great deal of commercial viability due to a lack of desire for change within the industry we did manage to prove ourselves as a creative design and manufacturing business.
The NOAH project was designed over 5 weeks during January and the start of February, with the manufacturing all done in-house in time to be displayed in April. As well as a showcase for our own business, part of the aim for this project was to get people thinking and talking about bicycle design and to show our acceptance of projects that are beyond standard, to that end the project has been successful.
