The VELLO Bike+ is a breakthrough in folding electric bikes as it provides unlimited mobility in cities thanks to its self- charging capabilities and compact folding. The energy with this new e-system is harvested by converting mechanical energy into electrical energy thanks to the Integrated Kinetic Energy Recovery System (K.E.R.S). In that way, additional energy is released when braking and pedaling downhill to completely recharge the light integrated lithium-ion battery while riding. As an added feature, VELLO includes a free app where users can set the level of pedal assistance and ride up to 25 km/hour (15 miles per hour), track their route and even lock their bike remotely, amongst other. With an ultra portable design, the VELLO is also the lightest e- bike on the market (clocking in at less than 12kg/ 26lbs), and capable of folding down to suitcase size for easy transport and carry. - VELLO BIKE is a pioneering lifestyle brand specializing in the design of innovative mobility products. With more than a decade of experience in designing and overseeing production processes for bicycles, baby carriages and electric mopeds as services to third parties, the co-founder and award-winning product designer Valentin Vodev took the next big leap by starting his own company together with Valerie Wolff. The products are manufactured in Vienna, Austria. The company ran three very successful crowdfunding campaigns (on Kickstarter and Indiegogo) to bring their own designs on the market.
