The company Bird made their name in working with cities to bring electric bicycles and scooters to communities. They’re made to be eco-friendly; they’re made to be shared. the newest Bird Bike is formed to be an identical proposition – an environmentally conscious, battery-powered bike – but at this point, it’s made for individual consumer ownership.
This bike features a modern design, two wheels, handlebar brakes, and a removable 36v battery. The bike works with a Bafang motor that the corporate say says “delivers up to 50 miles (80km) of range.” The bike delivers a maximum e-assist speed of 20 mph and quick stopping with Radius CX7 mechanical disc braking.
There’s a handlebar dash display, too.
The display is an LCD panel with a design that supported the success of the Bird scooter display. This display is backlit and shows battery life, speed, and distance traveled. The display is embedded within the handlebars and is powered by an equivalent battery because of the remainder of the bike. This display works with the bike’s integrated computing unit that connects with Bluetooth to the Bird app.
The bike is propelled employing a “chainless” Gates Carbon drivetrain. So rather than handling a standard metal link chain that’ll eventually rust and break down, this bike works with “advanced, no-stretch carbon cord technology.” In addition, this drivetrain moves puncture-resistant tires made by Kenda.
The entire machine is IP65+ waterproof, so you needn’t worry about rain or an accidental drink spill. The bike is formed with a “commercial-grade aluminum alloy” frame and features a height-adjustable seat. LED lights provide “180-degree visibility any time of day or night.”
The first Bird Bike available to consumers will be available to get in Stealth Black and Gravity Gray. These bikes are available in “limited quantities” and may be purchased for about USD 2,299. Two versions will be made available by the top of the year – one A-Frame (step-over) and one V-Frame (step-through), both coming to retailers within the US and throughout Europe.
