Vello Bike+ is a new variant in the long line of foldable bikes from Vello, which separates itself from the lineup thanks to it’s self charging capability.
This self charging capability is supported by the KERS E-Drive Technology from Zehus, which constantly produces energy while the bike is moving.
This unique feature makes this a one of a kind offering, which is an achievement in itself, when we consider the emerging and expanding Electric Bike market.
In addition to the self charging electric motor, this bike also features an easy to use foldable design, which makes it possible for you to pack this bike up in a regular suitcase.
To ensure that the electric components aren’t affected by the foldable design, the company has worked hard to create an all in one drive hub, which features an integrated battery and all the hardware needed to run the bike.
Through this hub, the user is able to access 6 different ride modes, which offer various types of riding experiences, at speeds of up to 15.5 mph (25 km/h) and range of up to 30 miles (50 km).
All these modes are managed through special sensors and algorithms, which work together to create a smooth ride, without the traditional performance up and downs generally related to electric bikes.
Since the KERS system constantly charges the battery through kinetic energy, you are always ensured that this smooth experience will remain constant as well, no matter where you go.
To top everything off, the bike also connects to your smartphone via bluetooth, so you can get all the real time statistics for the bike right in your hand.
All this features, when combined with the sleek and beautiful design, makes this bike a must have for anyone who is interested in taking up cycling.
If you are one of these people, then you can go to the Bike+ Kickstarter Page to order the bike for a base price of €1,599 (US$1,790).
