Trooper bicycle

Hercules decided to develop a bike looking at the craze for war based video games like call of duty, battle field etc. This project was targeted for kids between the age group of 8-14 years, it was developed in 2 sizes, one with 24"set of wheels and the other with 26"" MTB tread.   I was an intern at TICI then and very fortunate to have worked on the industrial design, the project was steered by Harikrishnan PK. This bike won the I design mark in 2016, however the production version had a lot of challenges in order to keep the costs sub 100$ retail.
