Award Winning Folium Water Repellant Bicycle Saddle

Brook S. Kennedy Shows The Folium Water Repellant Bicycle Saddle

Brook S. Kennedy, the author of the displayed design Brook S. Kennedy's Folium Water repellant bicycle saddle explains, Folium is a Biomimetic water repellent bicycle seat design enabled by emerging nano technology materials. Bicyclists worldwide struggle to keep their bicycle seats dry and comfortable when it rains. As a result, unattractive, awkward plastic grocery bags or fabric covers are used to keep their bike seats dry. Sometimes rain discourages bicycling altogether. Folium's design encourages water drops to roll off. Inspired by Lotus leaves which repel water during Monsoon rains, Folium's surface material is engraved with a microscopic surface texture similarly to Lotus leaves and others plants..
