Gore + Aprilia Fuel Cell Bike

Designed by WL Gore & Associates (yes, that same company that keeps your ski jacket waterproof with non-biodegrading materials), this fuel cell bicycle, with a frame designed by super-sexy Italian motorcycle manufacturer Aprilia, was presented last week at the Fuel Cell Expo 2005 in Japan. In fact, Gore, though we’ve slightly berated them before, is a leader in the fuel cell industry. The innovative company that has helped astronauts get through space also supplies some of the most technologically advanced parts (like Membrane Electrode Asemblies, or MEAs) for fuel cell industry. (Which makes us think: what are those things made of?) Via ::Planet Ark ::WL Gore & Associates [by MO]
