Cybic Legend Takes Smart Biking to Next Level with Amazon Alexa

LAS VEGAS, USA - Playing music, listening to directions or ordering a takeaway while you commute home from work could soon be a reality thanks to a new 'smart bike'. The Cybic Legend, being unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas this week, comes equipped with Amazon's Alexa digital assistant.

“Adding Alexa functionality expands the notion of ‘Alexa On The Go’, where Alexa is available anywhere where the bike is,” said David Kumar, principal product manager at Alexa Voice Services. “The combination of Alexa and Cybic enables riders to enjoy a great range of innovative, integrated bike features without their hands ever having to leave the safety of the handle bars.”

Halfords will be first to stock the new bike range in the UK and Ireland from the summer, with three years of Vodafone 3G data included to make use of the smart features. “We’ve seen innovations in alternative commuting go from strength to strength and after electric bikes we predict that the next big trend for commuters will be smart bikes,” said Halfords’ Andy Whitehall.

The Cybic brand will be launched at CES in Las Vegas this week on the Amazon stand. The Cybic e-bikes are manufactured in Taiwan.
