WIND-SOLAR ENERGY BIKE
Pedaling up a steep slope can knock the wind out the healthiest of us all. That’s why we need hybrid bikes like the Wind-Solar Energy Bike. Bikes like this harness wind energy, solar energy, shock energy and muscle power, only to be used at those tough climbs or when you turn lazy! The spoiler of this bike is covered with solar panels and is fixed below the handles of the bike to produce lifting force for lightening the weight of the bike.
There are 4 areas that assist in harnessing the energy to stock it up in the rechargeable battery. They are: the adjustable solar energy plane, the Spoiler, the Two front forks and the front and back wheels.
The adjustable solar energy plane:
The adjustable solar energy plane is put below the main pipe of the bike; it can absorb solar energy at ordinary times, while riding in a long way, solar energy plane can be pull to expand to absorb more solar energy directly.
Spoiler is a combination of Solar-cell Coating and Wind-power electricity generator; it is affixed below the handle of the bike. The Spoiler can produce the electric energy through wind-force and solar energy; through under the function of the air current. This makes the Spoiler to produce the driving up force and lighten weight of the bike. The front of the spoiler has a headlight, it can be removed to function as a flashlight.
Two front forks:
There is a coil and magnet set up at the two front forks, the gravity of rider will cause shaking force, which make the magnetic field to cut the coil, so that it will generate electric energy.
Front and back wheel:
A motor and electricity coils setting is designed at the Front and back wheel. It can produce electric energy while rotating at ordinary times. When the Winsolar is climbing a slope and the biker too tired to pedal, he can switch over to the automatic motor, to make the ascend.
