[EN VIDÉO] This inflatable electric bicycle fits in a backpack What is more compact and faster to assemble than a foldable bicycle? An inflatable bike that weighs barely 5 kilos including wheels and battery. Designed by the University of Tokyo, it fits in a backpack and inflates in 1 minute.
Designed by Beno Technologies, the Reevo, an urban eBike with a spectacular design, is a concentrate never before seen on a bicycle.

A GPS chip and a motion sensor allow the user to create a geofencing zone in order to follow from his smartphone any movement of the bike within a defined perimeter.

The single-sided fork is in itself a great feat of engineering. Only the jaw brakes denote a bit in this decidedly futuristic set. Beno does not communicate on the performance of the engine or the autonomy of the battery which recharges in three hours.
The big unknown concerns the price of this extraordinary electric bike. Beno has opened registrations for pre-orders where first-time buyers will be entitled to a 40% discount. A very generous discount that suggests a high base price …
