E-bike Combining Design and Ease-of-use

Together with the Taiwanese frame manufacturer Caribou, Fred Bernard and Alex Guiral developed this new e-bike concept which is in line with the brand’s image.

SRAM was selected very early on to provide an automatic transmission system which offered the functionality required for this bold venture. The bike is uniquely operated by one single push of a button, which opens new possibilities in a market of users looking for simplicity and purity. To improve dynamics, the battery is positioned at the front of the bike, discreetly concealed within a practical wooden luggage carrier, on which a bespoke designed basket will fit. In addition the wheels are of different sizes: 700c in the back and 26” in front. The cables for the hydraulic brakes are hidden owing to a cache that runs beneath the down tube, adding to the sleek design and easy maintenance. The shock-resistant, long-life LED light is integrated in the luggage carrier.
