Trek Prototype — Meet the Broadsider!

  Screen shot 2010-08-07 at 9.51.00 AM


The ’Broadsider’ is a bike derived from a post oil, post-apocalyptic graphic novel based on its namesake. It tells the story of the legendary ‘cliff racer’ Max Malco who lost his life saving a young boy from his racing rivals.

The story and bike were created by Trek’s industrial design group. The Broadsider is a conceptual prototype project intended to keep the Trek brain trust sharp.

It is through executions like this the design team continually dreams up new directions to keep up the excitement and enthusiasm for bicycles.

Should the  apocalypse ever come, the human spirit will survive. when oil comes to its end human power will thrive!

What a wonderful idea to bring into reality. Nice to see the comic book mock up also, is that part of the design process?

Some of you can't appreciate the time it took to do this... very cool, and no I do not think they will produce it...
