with a set of fully integrated solar panels, the leaos ‘solar electric’ bike can self-sufficiently produce enough energy for usage of up to 30 km/day. this builds upon the previous ‘2.0’ model which is capable of reaching speeds of 45 km/h but relies on a battery driven by plug-in power. however, when the energy levels are shown on the handlebar display as insufficient, the latest version can also re-energize via connection with conventional sources.

this integration of solar panels strengthens the design’s already high aesthetic standards. it features a carbon fiber body rather than tubes, which also seamlessly includes the technology screen and lighting systems into its form. designed and handmade in italy, the ‘solar electric’ bicycle can be customized with real wood, leather and special accessories such as bags and helmets, to make each product individual.
