the carbon fiber monocoque body is complemented by a battery developed with manufacturer BMZ. the newly engineered engine drives the bike more smoothly, boasting high torque and reaching speeds of 45 km/h.

the comfortable seat position and special geometry make for a secure ride. its low entry makes the e-bike a unisex vehicle. above and beyond design, suitability for daily use and low maintenance have been the main focal points of the development process. schwalbe balloon tires provide for optimum comfort.

  • I appreciate any effort to design, and more importantly produce electric bicycles so kudos to the designers. My critique is that the seat posts and pedals look like an afterthought and sticks out from the rest of the bike. Overall, It looks clunky too so i hope to see more refinements on the second version.

  • This article is not very useful. No battery or engine specs, or how long it can go on a charge. How much does it weigh? Suggested list price. It’s really just a bunch of pics.

  • It’s modeled after an Itera bike! If you ask me they forgot that the shape of the bike is as important as the material to make it look sexy.
