toronto-based vanhawks has announced the introduction of valour through kickstarter, the world’s first carbon fiber smart bike. hooking-up to iOS, android and pebble using bluetooth, the commuter bicycle is connected through a ‘bike-2-bike’ mesh–network – similar to car-2-car communication – which can be tracked if stolen, aiding in its recovery. onboard sensors monitor ride statistics in real-time and syncs the data – including route, distance, speed, and time – with the vanhawks app. the ‘valour’ is crafted with an emphasis on human ergonomics, designed to relieve pressure on back muscles, the spine and buttocks.
weighing just over 7 kilograms, the bio-mimicry-based frame was developed unique carbon fibre technology, which references the construction of human bones. internally, the structural walls reinforce the critical load bearing points in the frame to withstand the roughest roads.
