Coren by Christian Zanzotti | UBC

Coren, an urban bike manufactured by UBC, truly highlights the origin of the word, “bicycle.” At first glance, the stand-out feature of the bicycle is its two ENVE wheels, which seem to dwarf the thin frame holding the bike together. However, the impression is a result of the lightweight, carbon fibers of the vehicle’s construction. Industrial designer Christian Zanzotti christened the bike with even more aerodynamics through the streamlined shape of the bike seat and a swipe of white paint on the all-black body, so that the 7.7-kilogram bike can really fly. In the case of Coren, great technology also means great attention to detail; a metal plate with wispy cutouts caps the derailleur, and the interior of the bike chain is a surprising cerulean. The sophistication and no-fuss look of the bicycle is an argument for this uptrend in mode of transportation. Suitable for all types of riders, the bicycle is available in singlespeed, “pedalec,” or fixed gear modes.
