With a breathtaking and avant-garde design, the Reevo aims to be the electric bike of the future. Its designer, the start-up Beno Technologies, has taken care of the smallest details to make the VAE even more attractive and unique. Starting with the wheels that do not have hubs or spokes.
In fact, instead of leaning on a central hub and spokes, the tire spins on a bearing along the fixed rim. The latter can even be used as storage space. Beno Technologies has planned a system that allows you to hang a bag. But these aren’t the only futuristic aspects of the Reevo.
An advanced anti-theft system
Before going any further, it should first be noted that despite its near mountain bike look, the Reevo Bikes is only designed for urban use. Precisely, given the high risk of theft in the city, Beno Technologies claims that its electric bike has an anti-theft system “triple impenetrable barrier”. The handlebars have a fingerprint reader for this purpose. An electric padlock is added to it. The latter is located in the frame, out of reach of the cutters.
In addition, the start-up has planned a GPS chip which, thanks to an application, allows the user to establish a geofencing perimeter. In this way, it will be possible to follow on your phone any movement of the bike in a defined area.

Reevo Bikes, an amazing electric bike with wheels without hubs or spokes
The Reevo Bikes is equipped with 800 lumen LED lighting. Integrated into the wheels, the headlight and taillight turn on and off automatically thanks to a light sensor. Its single-sided fork which attaches to its one-piece frame is also one of the notable characteristics of the electric-assisted bicycle.
Few technical details were shared by Beno Technologies. Autonomy is thus ignored. However, the Reevo is powered by a 48V battery. Three hours of charging are required to restore full capacity. Unlike the American version which will be equipped with a 750 watt electric motor, the one intended for the European market will have a power of 250 watts.
The price remains a big mystery, despite the fact that pre-orders will open soon. In the meantime, the automaker is currently offering a 40% discount to those who sign up.
