The Audi e-bike Wörthersee is advertised as a high-end pedelec for sport. It pushes the limits of what is possible in design, software integration and electric mobility to the edge.
This super stylish e-bike has an ultra-light carbon-fibre frame and the complete bicycle weighs approx. 21 kg (46.30 lb). I think it looks like something Batman would cycle; stealth biking for that eco-route (okay maybe not). The lithium-ion battery can be fully recharged from a 230V supply in 2 ½h or can be detached from the bike and replaced by a recharged battery which is fairly handy for daily work commute.
There are five settings; which either support the use of pedals or electric-only travel. With the electric motor on; a top speed of up to 80 km/h (50 mph) can be achieved,so it will hurt if you decide to fall off. There is also a 'Wheelie' setting option to help master those neat skills and stunts and then pin it, post it, show it to your friends.
Smartphone integration with the on-board touchscreen computer takes biking to the next generation, has the e-bike now turned iBike?. Maybe Apple will develop advanced cycling apps for ibikes and some integrated GPS biking software to network with other riders in the area. Kickstart a biking revolution.
