“In reinventing the e-bike, we were determined to build a bike that is beautiful inside and out, but with brains to match,” said Ties Carlier, who is a co-founder of VanMoof along with his brother Taco. “We’re confident we’ve built the smartest and most connected e-bike on the market, and one that advances VanMoof’s mission of breaking down barriers to commuting, empowering more people to get from point A to point B in cities around the globe.”

VanMoof‘s e-bikes are known for their range and ease-of-use, but the Electrified S pushes those standards even further with a range of up to 75 miles (close to double the range of its predecessor, the Electrified). Users can choose to ride unassisted, or to enlist the help of the well-hidden, nearly-silent motor, which can give a pedal power boost of up to 500%. That giant hill on the way to work? No sweat with the S.

The “S” in Electrified S stands for smart, and VanMoof’s new offering pushes the boundaries of what a bike can do with a host of new features that make riding easier, more intelligent and more fun.

One of the most useful upgrades is the ability to control the S via a smartphone app that lets riders unlock their bikes remotely (within Bluetooth range), switch between pedal assist levels, track the bike’s location using a built-in GSM connection and turn on the bike’s lights. You can also give your bike a name for a personalized touch.

Don’t want to bother with your phone to access your S? The design team went one step further and integrated a Bluetooth feature that allows you to unlock it with a simple touch of your hand.

The S’s sleek digital touchpad display makes getting key stats like battery life, speed, distance traveled and power level while riding a breeze, but it doesn’t call unnecessary attention to itself thanks to its low-key location right in the bike’s top tube. And at 40 lbs., it’s still one of the lightest e-bikes on the market despite its powerful motor.

The Electrified S comes in gray, black or limited-edition white with red accents and will go on sale in June starting at $2,998, but VanMoof is currently offering the first 1,000 Electrified S bikes for preorder here as of today at special prices starting from $1,998.
