Control your bike with your phone

A lot of people ride to work and tend to end up a bit sweaty, however, now there is a smart folding bike with a 250W motor that will give users 30 miles of assisted riding with one charge, to help climb steep hills and ride with minimal effort. The electric system is design under US/EU regulations. This bike is defined as a 'pedalec' which means that it assists while pedaling and max speed for the electric motor is restricted to 15.5mph (or 25km/h).

Weighing in at only 11.8kg (26lbs) the CMYK 4.0 is very easy to transport. The handlebars fold down in one motion and the seat easily lowers making the bike a compact package to take on the train, put in your car or stash under your desk. The mobile app is how users interact directly with the bike and the context in which they travel. It tells the user information like speed, cadence, distance, step-by-step navigation, performance and all sorts of stats on their riding. You can also access train/bus schedules, step by step navigation and even know road conditions ahead and get warnings of potential danger zones.

The bike also features a phone charger on the handlebar, which allows the phone to charge even if the bike runs out of 'juice'. The app also tells users where bike lanes are located so that users can plan which routes to take ahead of time.

The electronic lock feature allows users to lock/unlock the electronics of the bike from their phone. If the bike is armed and it is moved an alarm will sound. Laser beams project a virtual bike lane on the road around the bike. Also a steady or blinking light keeps riders visible and makes riding safer at night.

The 24V, 5.5Ah rechargeable Li-ion battery charges in about two hours and the bike includeds power supply plugs into standard 110-220V outlets.
