Winners consumer favorite 2011
bimobil – A multifunctional, foldable three-wheeler for two
Product — bimobil – Dreirad für Zwei
Design — Edgar Klitsch
Manufacturer — ib-klitsch.de Ingenieurbüro für Produkt-
entwicklung und Konstruktion, Bielefeld, Germany

The bimobil is a multifunctional basic vehicle that can be altered and expan-
ded and can serve the user as a push-chair, a tandem, a rickshaw or a safe
way to transport children by bicycle. Bimobil meets the needs of different
user groups: parents with a toddler will find it just as handy as someone ac-
companying a person with impaired mobility.
One significant advantage is the fact that this vehicle can be taken along
without restriction on any public transport system – regardless of whether or
not you are also transporting a load. Another advantage is that the bimobil,
compact and partially taken apart, can be easily pushed along while carrying
another load.
