Decathlon has introduced a second version of its Magic Bike, designed to replace the car in an active travel future, a vehicle which can take its rider on adventures.

The second concept e-bike from the French budget sports retailers is an attempt to create something different, an "invitation to travel", as Decathlon puts it. At present, this is a concept bike: it just exists online, with no price point, but it is branded as B'Twin, the retailer's in-house marque.
