This project was developed for CEDIM during my management as Director of the Industrial Design Department. My participation in the project was from Lead Designer, working with a team composed by senior design students.
How can we improve the experience of using Human-powered Vehicles? Do we need to create a new vehicle to offer more comfortable experiences or the current ones just have to be thought again?
The development of the project is to break the current paradigm of using the already existing Human-powered Vehicles, thus providing development improvements that have taken over their creation, providing sensations that complement the needs of the user.

A-System is based on working with attachments for longboard based on the philosophy of Red Bull: adventure and fun throughout the planet, to help you to be different, feel good and share the moment with others.
A-System questions the riser paradigm, and sees the possibilities in its evolution. Is it possible to develop a riser capable of facilitating the user's life? A system that allows easier use, more agile, more intelligent?
