Mobility Black Technology | New electric bicycle with multiple functions in one
Model 1 from "civilized bike" combines scooters, mopeds, electric bikes and cargo bikes to form a fashionable look. These integrated hanging baskets can lock up to 20 liters of cargo inside, and can also be pulled out to provide 80 liters of expanded carrying capacity.
When Zachary Schieffelin worked at a Vespa dealer in New York, the company had expanded its product line to include electric bicycles, but he pointed out that many customers are looking for the dream of combining the best scooters, cargo bicycles and Dutch cruisers trip. Inspired by this, he began to design multi-functional, interconnected and durable personnel and cargo transport vehicles.
The Ni car can be easily connected to the rear frame of many electric or other two-wheelers, but Schieffelin hopes to integrate the cargo compartment of its electric bike into the actual design. After fine-tuning the development sketch, foam and hierarchical scale models were created, and after the potential customer's favorable comments, they decided to build a prototype.
The first mass-produced Model 1 electric bicycle will be produced in limited quantities. It is said that these rides use a hydro-formed aluminum stride frame that can comfortably accommodate two adults, or one adult and two children. According to reports, there are 350W, 500W or 750W intermediate drive motors (depending on local regulations) whose peak torque is twice that of Bosch intermediate drive motors. It can reach a top speed of 20 mph (32 km/h) or 28 mph (45 km/h), and the rider can only choose throttle or pedal assist.
The electric bike can travel 25 miles (40 kilometers) in each charging range of the lithium-ion battery with two USB charging ports to power the device, or double the optional second battery pack .
Those striking patented hard shell skirts can carry up to 50 pounds (22.6 kg) of cargo, are weather resistant, lockable, and can enclose the upper part of the rear wheel. Model 1 has a novel complete Manitou suspension system, which can be automatically adjusted according to the weight of the rider, passengers and cargo, with a front travel of 80 mm and a rear travel of 60 mm.
In other places, you will find the headlights and taillights integrated in the frame. The former will automatically immerse when it detects the oncoming headlights, and the latter will also be used as brake lights. Stopping power comes from Tektro's hydraulic disc brakes, which can be accessed using an application running on a Bluetooth-equipped smartphone.
The original 40 Founders Team version is limited to 40 small batches, each priced at $5,999. Transportation is expected to start in the second quarter of 2020. The video below shows the Model 1 handling hills in San Francisco.
