Angell Bike is an electric and connected bicycle that wants to revolutionize urban mobility.
France is beginning to make a name for itself in the electric bike market. Last year, a 100% French model e-bike, made a lot of headlines all over Europe: “Angell Bike”, has been lauded as an e-bike that perfectly combines electric power and state-of-the-art technology.
Angell is a young start-up founded in 2018 by two serial entrepreneurs and investors, Marc Simoncini and Jules Treco. Marc Simoncini is the founder of Meetic while Jules Treco is the founder of Heroin Bikes. The duo’s ambition is to “revolutionize urban mobility” by offering a bicycle that is both electric and connected: a Smart e-bike that has it all!
The Angell Bike attracts attention with its very elegant look, imagined by the French designer Ora-ïto. The e-bike has a rounded aluminum frame and a carbon rim. The choice of these materials gives it an ultra-light structure with a featherweight of 14 kg, including 2 kg for its removable battery that fully recharges in just two hours. This Smart e-bike offers a riding range of 70 km and a top speed of 25 km/h.
An electric bicycle on the cutting edge of technology
The Angell Bike features an intelligent battery. This battery is connected to an on-board computer, which is directly integrated into the handlebars of the e-bike. The e-bike also features a 2.4-inch touch screen that, in addition to displaying standard information (range, battery level, etc.), also allows you to check speed, distance traveled, and air quality.
The on-board computer also makes it possible to customize the electric bicycle’s driving mode. Angell e-bike offers three different riding modes, as well as four electric assistance levels.
The Angell Bike is thus able to adapt to its rider’s needs:
- the “Fly Fast” mode allows you to ride at maximum speed,
- the “Fly Eco” mode activates the battery saver,
- the “Fly Dry” mode allows you to adapt the assistance of the bike according to the route
- the “Fly Free” mode allows you to deactivate the electric assistance of the bike.
The Angell Bike also offers a sports program that allows its rider to set goals for the time spent on the e-bike or calories burned on their rides. The handlebars of the e-bike are equipped with a GPS system that ensures you never get lost on the way. Handlebars also indicate the right direction to take by vibrating to the left or to the right.
Angell focuses on luxury and security
In addition to being powerful and high-tech, the Angell Bike is also an ultra-secure e-bike. Its navigational assistance system allows cyclists to concentrate more on the road. The bike also features turn signals, tire reflective stripes as well as the powerful front and rear lights. The e-bike is equipped with an accelerometer that detects falls and then automatically sends an alert to the rider’s emergency contact.
Angell e-bike has been available for pre-order since November 2019 at a price of 2,690 euros on the brand’s website, and also at FNAC retail chain in France. To appeal to its new buyers, Angell is also offering a three-year payment option for 75 euros per month. The brand also plans to launch a lighter variant, the “Angell-S”, by the end of the year.
