The concept

The Small-B concept is for reaching the best ratio : smaller footprint/highest efficiency level. This concept performs due to a 28” rear wheel and a 12” front wheel and of course, a patented particular geometry.

Small-B is designed for this kind of urban and peri-urban using:

I have 2 or 3 km to go to take my public transport for a trip of about 10 km, then I have 1 or 2 km left to reach my workplace.
With my Small-B I cover distances easily as with a road bike.
I take my public transport without additional inconvenience for other users. With its small size, it can be forgotten behind my desk.
In the evening, I don’t want back to home by public transport, I easily ride the distance to my home without difficulty.
During weekends I can take it for my country riding.
Advantageously, it can be stored widthwise in my van during my getaways.

Our SMALL-B fully fits our initial specifications:

  • footprint like a 24 inches kids bike, performance of an adult road bike.
  • a singular geometry to obtain a bike length of 1.4 m compared to 1.9 m for an adult bike, without compromising stability, agility and performance.
  • Intermodal, Versatile, Efficient
  • multi-using, city, road, path
  • muscular and e-Booster version
  • French manufacturing

The result is a bike with a 28-inch rear wheel and a 12-inch front wheel.

Performance is ensured by the 28-inch rear wheel, stability and maneuverability by the patented geometry.

Take public transport, without additional inconvenience for other users thanks to its small size, its foldable handlebars and pedals.

The 12-inch front wheel doesn’t hit the steps when you have to go up and down stairs to take public transport.

Its folding handlebar makes it easy to transport, including by car.

Taking an elevator no longer requires improbable gymnastics.

It comes in a muscular version with a weight of 12 kg and an e-booster version with a weight of 16.2 kg, battery included.

We have postponed the commercialization date of our bikes to 2023, because if we are autonomous for the local manufacture of frames, we consider our Asian dependence too strong for components.< /p>

Many initiatives are taking shape for French and European manufacturing of components.

We will therefore base our marketing on the availability of these components.

Nevertheless, we have bikes available for you to come and test.
Enjoy your SMALL-B experience.

Inventor’s word

Inventing is always a long process, contrary to the popular idea of ​​invention springing like lightning. We do not control the time of the incubation and maturation phases which feed on our exchanges of our readings, our errors, our tests.

And then, indeed, the idea comes, but even if it comes in a head, it is always the fruit of a collective result. The most important thing in invention is to constantly have the idea to invent.

Then it becomes second nature, sometimes atrophying, but very often sparkling.

Believe in it without failing, endure without flinching, always and again thinking in an attempt to achieve obvious simplicity.
