Hidemax bike looks like it's too flexible to ride

Bike design has seen a lot of refinement over the last twenty years, but a new tweak is only going to be successful if it follows the basic laws of physics.

Any structural engineer will tell you that a round tube had a much better stiffness to weight ratio than a flat solid bar, so I'm still trying to figure out why Turkish designer Servet Yuksel has used curvy flat bars for his Hidemax bike frame. Information is a bit sketchy, so perhaps he has some super stiff material in mind that's he's not telling us about.
