Albeit the photo above is not of the finished bicycle — it makes for a pretty amusing prototype — the FLIZ is a Laufrad-inspired bicycle with no pedals that you run with. While the video makes it look like a breeze to use, it still seems like something terrifying to be strapped in.

The prior aim of developing FLIZ was to bring a completely new driving experience to everyone. Based on the very first bike - the “Laufrad“ - we created a velocipede concept of healthy, ecological mobility in overcrowded urban space. Its laminated, innovative frame with 5 point belt system provides a comfortable, ergonomic ride between running and biking. The frame integrates the rider and due to its construction it works both like a suspension and like a top carrier whereas the belt replaces the saddle and adjusts your position.
