smart ebike Is The Next Generation Of Electric Transportation
The new smart ebike is set to take the city by storm as the next generation in electric transportation, and stands out in smart’s new line of exciting electric-drive vehicles including the smart Fortwo electric coupe and cabriolet. With a unique and beautiful design that has already been awarded the top prize at the Red Dot Awards, the ebike is no ordinary cycle.
What is it, then? It’s an innovative pedelec (pedal electric cycle), which means that it assists your muscle power as you pedal. With each press of the pedal you will be able to navigate the toughest hills with ease thanks to a 250-watt electric motor and with four power-level modes to choose from you can cover a range of up to 100 kilometers on a single charge. And don’t worry if you run out of power – you can recharge the battery under your own pedalling power by selecting one of the four “generator” levels in the basic display to turn the electric motor into a generator.
The idea is to make urban mobility easier, and we see the ebike being used as a smart alternative to driving your vehicle to the workplace to beat traffic. The ebike combines the benefits of a bicycle with the ease of electric transportation to make traveling to and from work a breeze. Pedelec riders don’t require any vehicle insurance or a driving license and you can take the ebike wherever you would take a bicycle.
Some of the features of the ebike include:
- A 423 Wh removable lithium-ion battery (up to 100km per charge)
- A 250-Watt brushless BionX electric rear-wheel hub motor
- Carbon tooth belt
- Powerful LED headlight
- MaguraMT4 hydraulic disc brakes
- Optional smartphone cradle
- Basic display shows trip kilometers, power level, speed and more
The ebike uses a carbon toothed belt which gives you freedom from chains and requires no lubricant or maintenance. It does its job quietly and weights a mere 80 grams. More importantly, it won’t ruin your paints like a chain! The basic display lets you control functions including drive and generator levels and view essential data like battery charge, trip kilometers and current or average speed. The optional smartphone cradle lets you use your smartphone to navigate easily to your destination and the standard USB interface allows you to charge it during your trip. A smart ebike app with special functions is also in the works.
The ebike is available in two attractive colour variants: in crystal white with electric green accent trim or matte dark grey with flame orange accents. Whichever option you choose, your ride will exude style. To make it your own, smart also offers many accessories to adapt the ebike to your needs including two seatpost and handlebar variants that you can combine make the bike comfortable for your height.
