With the goal of augmenting the performance of active transit alternatives, through a bike share approach, Zipcycle seeks to make performance accessible to the public. The super light carbon fiber monocoque body optimizes air flow by melding with the rider in a natural recumbent and efficient sleek form.  As a bikeshare prototype, the fleet would be deployed between urban and suburban areas, as an option for efficient active mobility for moderately long protected commutes, with minimal disruption, for example on Bicycle Super Highways. ZIPCycle will be for the decidedly more motivated commuters and competition for e-bikes populating these longer routes
