Young Swiss company velocipede-fogliaverde has unveiled a lighter-than-air, stylish electric bike for urban riders. At just 18.7 kg or 41 lbs, this incredibly light, elegant bike is the first non-plugin parallel hybrid E-hub on the market. The high-tech system only gives you power when you absolutely need it to accelerate or go up hill. Using a torque and slope sensing technology, this e-bike contains an invisible battery with no wiring, and is controlled with Bluetooth-smartphone connectivity. Inspired by the elegant high-quality cult bicycles of yesteryear, the stunning set of wheels comes equipped with a leather case, saddle bag of tools, two steel porters, wooden chain guard, carrying strap, kickstand, bell and reflectors. Whether you commute to work or take it out for a leisurely spin, admiration of bystanders is guaranteed.
