https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ll3s9RpXF4o The VELLO BIKE+ features a variety of innovations designed to revolutionize the experience of cycling in the city. According to VELLO, the bike is the ” smallest and lightest electric folding bike on the market .” It weighs around 26 pounds and is 21 by 28 by 9 inches big. It folds down in seconds to fit under a desk or in a car trunk, and users can map their route or remotely lock the VELLO BIKE+ via an app. Related: Foldable bike scooter combo runs entirely on electricity Because the bike charges itself, riders never need to plug it in! It harvests energy when riders brake or pedal using an integrated kinetic energy recovery system. The amount of energy generated depends on factors like road slope and pedaling speed. A 250W motor gives riders an electric boost, but according to VELLO the bike is still easy to pedal when power assistance is switched off. VELLO says users can ride for around 20 miles at 15 miles per hour on a full charge without any effort. Co-founder Valentin Vodev said in a statement, “For us converting ideas into products is a metamorphosis from the common to the unexplored – a discovery through which we can define new functions and forms.” With just under a month to go, VELLO has raised over $170,000 out of a $89,540 goal on Kickstarter. You can back the project here – the early bird price is 1,599 Euros, or about $1,799. + VELLO
