Just twice a year, lucky LEGO builders have a chance for their creations to be reviewed by a team of actual LEGO designers in hopes of becoming the next kit to hit store shelves.

eBike innovations of the past were mainly geared towards minor quality of life changes like longer drive times, more stylish exteriors and lighter frames. And while the folks at Pragma Industries have still put thought into these areas, the company’s real focus has shifted towards a new front, ditching the conventional lithium-ion batteries in favor of hydrogen fuel cells. These efforts have resulted in Alpha, which is said to be the first commercially available eBike to boast such a feat.
