5 Reasons you should start riding a HummingbirdFeb 26, 2020
1. BREAK FREE
Tired of being stuck in traffic or fighting for space on public transport?
Do you want to invest in a bike but are worried about the hassle of storing it or getting it stolen?
Hummingbird will give you that new sense of freedom you are longing for. It folds in seconds and fun fact, the single speed model weighs the same as 9 cups of coffee.
2. POWER OF THE MIND
It took some serious brain power at Prodrive to design and create the Hummingbird. Some pedal power played (and continues to play) a part in our creative process and brainstorming.
A recent study found that just 25 minutes of aerobic exercise boosts at least one measure of creative thinking. Here’s the science and it’s nothing new - the flow of oxygen to your brain ignites your neurons, giving you the energy, inspiration and breathing space to deliver results.
3. CLEAN AND TIDY
Another fun fact : 40 Hummingbird bicycles can be parked in the same space as a gas guzzling city car. It takes around 5% of the materials and energy used to make a car to build a bike, and a bike generates zero pollution, so the Hummingbird ticks your green credentials.
4. USE YOUR OWN ENGINE INSTEAD
How efficient is your output?
The Hummingbird is super-efficient! On a Hummingbird you travel around three times as fast as walking for the same amount of energy and, taking into account the ‘fuel’ you put in your ‘engine’, you do the equivalent of 2,924 miles to the gallon. You have your weight ratio to thank: you’re about 8 times heavier than your Hummingbird, but a car is 22 times heavier than you.
5. LOOKING GOOD
With its beautiful curves, the Hummingbird is a traffic-stopping and award-winning design. Have fun, feel better, look great and add years to your life by cycling everyday.
