The bicycles are made from a lightweight aluminum frame with integrated LED lighting, a handle bar with a place to swipe a card, and a 26V lithium battery to make the bike easier to ride. Each bike is designed to easily slide into the locking systems at bike share stations.
Locking mechanisms are easy to use and melt into the urban fabric — bikes can be stored on streets, in public squares, or even vertically on walls or light poles near train stations or other popular spots. Rental fees for the bikes depend on how long you take the bike and how far, but prices are reasonable and may even be free for a short time. Ultimately, what RAFAA wants to create is an approachable and easy to use bike sharing system that makes it a snap for people to pick up and drop off a bike wherever they need to.
