israeli student eyal melnick has created ‘shavit’ for his degree at shenkar college of design and engineering.
featuring an adjustable riding position system, this multipurpose electric bike can be configured for both racing
and urban touring functions. the different modes are reflected in the various mechanical components which
make up the bike’s riding position geometry: change is expressed by the moving handlebars, foot pegs and seat.

‘shavit’ is able to achieve this range of motion due to its use of an electric motor and battery pack. in contrast
to models run by fuel that thereby require more chassis, the use of electric power reduces the number of
necessary components, yielding both a minimal aesthetic and greater versatility for the rider.
