Travel and everyday bikes

In the specifications, there was written versatility, modularity and ingenuity. We tell you how Antidote Solutions took this brief and created a unique customizable travel bike frame.

Innovation for travel

The challenge: to create a versatile frame compatible with a wide variety of use cases: for recreational use as well as for everyday travel. We put our expertise in engineering, sourcing and product design at the service of the project. The result: a versatile and aesthetically pleasing bike. 

We love to help project leaders turn their ideas into reality. In the case of Compagnon, our role was crucial in the design of the framework. Working hand in hand with Benjamin, we developed the bike he had in his head.
