The Thai Lightfog company developed an electric bicycle capable of eliminating air pollution breathed by cyclists. With a scrubber installed in the front of the bike, the system retains the particulate material found in urban centers and frees pure oxygen into the atmosphere, contributing in every way to reduce air pollution caused by traffic.

Call Air Purifier Bike - loosely translated to Air Purifying bike - the adapted vehicle is a good solution for improving the welfare of the people who have adopted the bikes as their primary means of transportation in busy urban centers, where it is needed most of the time, sharing the road with cars, trucks, buses and motorcycles, always present congestion in the cities.

Reported the website Trend Hunter, besides the purifier installed in the front of the bicycle frame concept takes a water tank accompanied by a system composed of photosynthetic cells, which release the clean air to the rider and around .

Thus, the alternative will not only increase the performance of cyclists during cycling, but also decrease the contact of the special bike users with particulate matter that accumulates in the skin and internal organs, causing respiratory and cardiovascular diseases.

A precursor innovation was created by British designer Matt Hope, which installed on your bike a can with an air purifier powered pedal, capable of retaining the particulate material and a system that provides fresh air to the user, the latter uses a mask on face.
