White Mamba
a multi-purpose transport bicycle for the African market
The development of a flexible cargo bicycle for small entrepreneurs in Kisumu Kenya and eventually other African countries. This project was initiated by the NGO Cycling out of Poverty and executed by a team of students from the University of technology Delft. The team, called African Bicycle Design, started with research on location, after which several concepts have been designed. One of these concepts was developed into a fully functioning prototype that has been tested  thoroughly on site. Finally the design was tweaked and now the bicycle is in production in one of the local Cycling Blue for Kenya workshops.
