Exhibiting at the 2014 Eurobike show in Germany, the nCycle aims to revolutionize the future of e-bikes and incorporates integrated locking, folding and pocket systems into a truly unique form. The handlebars solve the problem of carrying around your lock by functioning as one itself. The solid, loop-shaped mechanism improves safety, portability and ease of use by being able to fit around most poles, while reducing the weight of lugging around a bolt and chain. The electronic bicycle also features an “npocket” which is a retractable pocket between the two metal plates of the frame. It disappears when not in use and when filled with objects such as notepads and books, only the bottom shows. Another combined technology is the “nfold” which allows the e-bike to be folded in two seconds.
The “npower” electric drive device aids the rider by adding force to the rear wheel and is located inside the metal body. The lithium battery is also built-in and supplies energy to the front and rear lights, wireless front speakers, holographic display and charges your smartphone. This electronic screen is situated by the handlebars and can show apps from your docked smartphone. For more information click here.
