Industrial design student work: a portable motorcycle jack





Motorcycle jacks come in different varieties…

…but what they have in common is that they are not easy to transport. Marine Fondinstudent in Industrial Design at ECAL Switzerland, tackled this problem for her recent U-Lift project.

“The workshop stand is a product that is systematically found in the workshops or garages of people who want and like to maintain their motorcycle at home. U-Lift is the innovation and redesign of this massive and cumbersome object, in order to make it practical and compact to take it into the world of motorcycle travel.”

“Lubricating a chain or checking the oil level are essential maintenance that must be carried out regularly on a motorcycle, especially during long journeys. These actions are not always easy to do when you don’t have the equipment. “

“This product has been designed and adapted to offer the user the possibility of carrying out his maintenance, alone, in a simple and secure manner.”

Fondin earned an “Excellent” rating for the project. You can see more of his work here.
