The Power of Cross X

The Cross X is a low-cost hybrid bicycle designed for the rapidly urbanizing countries. It hopes to be that mode of transport, which is cost-effective, traffic beating and personal. Its potential in two contexts – medical emergencies and large campuses; I’m thinking campuses like Apple or Google, perhaps!

Details:

  • The hybrid design of Cross X means electric power can help paramedics to reach to such remote areas in time.
  • Paramedics can store a medical emergency response kit in the built-in storage compartment of Cross X; also they can use its battery power to operate communication and other devices.
  • Corporates and big colleges are converting their campuses into sustainable ones through a reduction in fossil fuel usage.
  • The ergonomic design of Cross X will make riding stress free and enjoyable for staff and students.

Cross X is a 2013 Red Dot Award: Design Concept Winner.

    Very interesting, but (in my humble opinion):
    1. that seat is extremely uncomfortable while pedaling
    2. the stroke of the rr suspension will let the rr wheel touch the rear fender
    3. that swingarm’s structure is definitely not rigid enough (in lateral torsion)…

    ‘Low cost’? There is not posted cost. Should we just take your word for it?

    Is this a joke?
    Don’t say cost effective and use a full suspension.
    No one needs either full suspension in the city either or MTB tires. If you change the MTB tires to balloon tires you can throw away this shitty cheap suspension fork and use a lighter an definately more cost effective rigid fork. The suspension in the back gets also unnecessary wich will lower the weight of the bike and increase long term durability and stiffness of the frame. These are just a few of my ideas to optimize this undercooked concept. And don’t say its just a concept because even a concept needs good investigation. Your investigation about bicycles at all is poorly conducted. Sorry but thats the way it is. And like nic says: the seat is bad, please use a normal bicycle seat.
