Shortlisted for product design of the year at Dezeen Awards 2019, Electrified S2 and X2 are high-security electric bikes by VanMoof.
Inspired by the super-cities of tomorrow, the Electrified S2 & X2 are next-generation e-bikes – with powerful motors, high capacity batteries, and an arsenal of integrated smart technology. The bicycles models boast "stealth locking" that activates with a kick, rider-recognition technology that automatically unlocks the bike on approach and an alarm system that activates if tampering is detected. The security features negate the need for a traditional bike lock. Should a thief break through these defences, the company's Bike Hunters – an opt-in service – get to work tracking down the stolen bicycle based on its location information.
