With warmer weather fast approaching, it's probably time to invest in a decent roadrunner. Last year, the San Francisco-based Volata Cycles introduced itself in spectacular fashion, and now the company is back with a new model that's purpose-built for urban exploration.

Like its predecessor, the Model 1C comes with an app-based handlebar computer which provides instant information on riding metrics, turn-by-turn navigation, weather forecast, music, heart rate, smartphone notifications and more. Notably, the machine boasts an anti-theft system which alerts the owner if anyone tries to steal the bike by sending a real-time smartphone message. And even if the thief manages to make off with it, the bike can still be found with location tracking.

A new flat bar, 700 x 35mm anti-puncture tires and larger pedals have been adapted to help riders navigate the rigors of the urban environment, along with other nifty components such as automatic rear lights which turn on in the dark.

The new Model 1c retails for $2,499 with mechanical shifting and $2,999 with Di2 electronic shifting. To find out more, head to the Volata website.
