The bicycle's fragile material - glass - has been combined with motion and speed, resulting in a glass bicycle. The bicycle weighs 21 kilograms, its glass components - 13 kilograms. The bicycle can carry a person weighing up to 90 kilograms.

The world's first glass bicycle will be displayed during the international design exhibition "Maison&objet" in Paris and serve as a prototype for future glass bikes. It is currently parked at the business incubator "Creative Andrejsala".
