Zehus Unveils Bike+
The Zehus is a spin-off of the Politecnico di Milano, in Italy, which unveiled its first hybrid e-bike at the China Cycle 2013 last May in Shanghai. The Bike operates in the same way as the Toyota Prius.
This prototype of the startup company could open a new market segment between the traditional bike and the modern e- bike. It is equipped with a small battery pack that helps the cyclist at slopes or intensive start/stop maneuvers. When the cyclist is pedaling he automatically recharges the batteries.
