A new brand known as Bird of Prey is making a remarkable innovation in the bicycle design. Instead of laying sitting up, the Bird of Prey Bicycle places bikers in a Superman style driving posture. This position enables riders to quickly observe the road the ahead, and yet providing many favorable elements–like enhanced aerodynamics and a reduced center of gravity.
While riding, the hip area is reinforced by soft leather supports, as the elbows are secured into aero bars. It is presumably a benefit for cyclists with back issues, as this position will not tighten the spine like standard sit down bicycles.
