Forget traditional bikes or skateboards, the future of green transportation is the Smacircle S1, an incredibly compact and lightweight ebike that can be folded up and carried in your backpack. Introduced to the world via an IndieGoGo campaign, the invention has surpassed its startup goal by 281% – and it’s not difficult to comprehend why. The carbon fiber S1 can be folded in five simple steps and can travel up to 12.4 mph. Additionally, though it only weighs 15.4 lbs, the ebike can hold 220 lbs.
