An electric bike that looks and feels nothing like one.
We’re excited to be on Product Hunt today and share our futuristic bike with you. The bike is fully integrated from end-to-end, as we design the majority of our parts ourselves – which means that nobody except you knows you’re riding an electric bike. ? It’s full of smart technology, including GSM tracking, which we can use to hunt the bike down if it gets stolen –we’ve had great success with this, and even managed to bust a bike-thief ring here in Europe. The Electrified (and the non-motored SmartBike) have a companion app too, which verifies it’s you as you approach the bike, so you can unlock your lock with the touch of a finger on the dashboard. There’s a lot of other cool features, like a parking pin so you never forget where you left your bike too – and we’ve got some exciting ideas in the pipeline. My favorite thing is the secret boost button on the handlebars that throws you up to full speed for taking off from intersections faster! I was an electric bike skeptic for a long time, but riding this thing in New York was the ‘aha’ moment for me – biking from Brooklyn to Manhattan daily for two weeks was actually do-able and fun, even on hot days. The bike finally came out of pre-order phase recently, so you can order one and get it within a week. The Verge did a review of the Electrified, calling it the “Tesla of bikes” in case you’re wondering what it’s like to ride: Without nerding out too much, the team designed the Electrified S to be the ultimate city bike, to get you from A-to-B without any hassle – and to reduce cars on the road at the same time. Every decision we make is super focused on this, and we don’t add bells and whistles we know you wouldn’t need.
