Vela is the bike of the future, wrapped up in the body of a classic fixed-gear cruiser.  The beautiful, electric single-speed cruiser comes with a Li-ion 370Wh removable battery, GPS tracking, anti-theft alarm system, and a control panel with a USB port, battery life LED indicator, and charging port. With a battery  range of at least 20 miles and full charging in 90 minutes, it can take you anywhere you need to go. Users can track Vela via GPS on their Google Maps application – compatible with iOS and Android. An internal 100dB motion sensitive, remote controlled sound alarm activates if anyone tries to steal it, and the Pure Pedal Assist System allows a clean look without throttles or switches. In fact, all of the electronics – including the wires, connectors, circuits, and the battery – are inside the Chromoly Steel classic frame. Hop over to Vela to snap up one of your very own.
