The ‘Footloose‘ is a hybrid e-bike from Korean auto suppliers Mando Corp. and Meister Inc., in collaboration with British designer Mark Sanders and Dutch e-bike expert Han Goes. Cyclists can either pedal it like a regular bike or use it like an electric bike. Gizmag reports that the folding chainless bike generates power directly from the rider via an alternator connected to the crank, which is stored in a lithium-ion battery and used for the motor. Cyclists can power the bike up to 30 km (18.6 miles) with the motor or pedal for more range.
