American taxi company Lyft has developed its own electric bicycle rental. The team worked on the design for two years. The result is that single-speed bicycles can cope with various speeds and road types.
From bicycle There is a 500 watt motor, which is enough for climbing mountains. On a single charge, the bicycle should be able to travel 100 kilometers.
Lyft installed LED rings on the bicycles to ensure safety at night. The whole bicycle is also coated with reflective material. It has an LCD screen and speakers to help users unlock and park. On-board sensors track the health of the bicycle in real time.
Lyft began testing in the Bay Area near San Francisco. Chicago will become the first city to officially provide bicycles.
