SOLID – The First Connected, 3D-Printed Titanium, Lifestyle Bike
SOLID is inspired by the diverse beauty and soul of Portland, OR. It brings together old and new manufacturing methods – and celebrates the urban Portland lifestyle. It inspires people to explore the city with a responsive, seamless, solid ride.
SOLID Bike – Product Concept
From the urban energy of East Burnside to the raw beauty of Forest Park, the SOLID bike captures the essence of the city and the best of both worlds – hand-built craft and modern manufacturing. Leveraging Ti Cycles’ 25 years of working with titanium, the INDUSTRY team utilized their signature “Super Commuter” platform. The criteria for this platform is a titanium frame and sub-assemblies for their lightweight strength, high durability belt drive, internal geared hub for effortless shifting, disc brakes, Dynamo electronics, fenders, and internal wiring. In order to create something truly seamless, the team 3D-printed key parts in collaboration with i3DMFG. This is the bike redefined.
SOLID “Discover My City” – Digital Experience
SOLID is a lifestyle bike. With that in mind, INDUSTRY created a companion app that allows riders to discover the city through 5 curated journeys. Whether riders want to experience Portland’s diverse forested terrain or ride in the city – this app guides riders to enjoy the distinct beauty of Portland. The app communicates with the bike to provide guided haptic navigation and brings together key influencers outside of the cycling industry to share their perspectives on what to see, ride, eat, shop and hear to truly experience Portland.
it's starting to get more and more serious this time with the 3rd place with the duo of Alex Valentino & Mayol behind the camera... euh the Iphone 4S i meant :)
The riding is really really consistent and there are some really good bangers toward the end! On his side, Mayol took the skateboard and filmed some crazy lines thanks to a fisheye mounted on the Iphone!
Thanks for viewing & sharing, directly embedded if it's possible :)
Place au trio de tête du Sosh Urban Motion avec les deux Alex : Mayol et Valentino qui nous ont pondu une excellente vidéo. Après une première journée Chill les deux se sont sortis les doigts du nez et ont assuré : Mayol à la video avec un clip qui sent bon ses vidéos a la VX et Alex Valentino niveau riding qui pète quelques bangers a la fin ! On reste toujours bluffé par la qualité des images faites au smartphone !
