New VanMoof e-bikes come with a host of smart features

In-built anti-theft devices and an app that remembers where you’ve left you machine

VanMoof says that the range of its latest e-bikes is up to 150km in economy mode and 60km at maximum assist level. You can quick charge to 50% in 80 minutes, adding an extra 75km range. A full charge from empty takes four hours.

According to Ties Carlier, VanMoof Co-founder: "With the new Electrified, we’ve created a bike that replaces the car for city commuting. We see Tesla and BMW as competition, not other bike companies. To compete at that level, we had to make everything better, faster, simpler, and more convenient."

He’s been cycling for a lot longer than that though and his travels by bike have taken him all around Europe and to California. He’s been riding gravel since before gravel bikes existed too, riding a cyclocross bike through the Chilterns and along the South Downs.
