The Freerider Skatecycle, an invention by Alon Karpman from Brooklyn Workshop, has received Bronze at the IDEA 2010 International Design Excellence Awards. Refined to perfection over the last 20 years (with the help of a design team including Romanian designer Antonio Meze), the Skatecycle is a lightweight aluminium structure that is controlled using techniques from skateboarding and snowboarding. A model of the slick and fun vehicle is now also part of the permanent collection at the Henry Ford Museum.
