Urban commutes powered by the sun.
Featuring a sleek futuristic aesthetic and an environmentally friendly design, the new KVAERN electric bicycle offers a sustainable and chic solution for daily commutes. Based in Copenhagen, a city with more bikes than cars, KVAERN created this e-bike as an alternative to traditional bicycles. The name means “cool ride” in Danish, but this bike offers much more than a stylish way to travel to work. Apart from its easily removable battery and smart controls, KVAERN also comes with its own solar power pack. This e bike solar charging system aims to change two-wheeled commuting.
In a similar way to Tesla’s Powerwall, the KVAERN+ charger provides an off-the-grid charging solution as it charges via solar energy during the day. Designed for personal use, the brand’s 100% solar power system has potential for expansion to public installations in the future. “No doubt Tesla has been a great inspiration for KVAERN, and like pretty much the rest of the world, we are very impressed with what they have managed to do to the car industry” says company founder Jonas Gissel. “With the electric bike, we’re facing a revolution in the bike industry as we know it. Whether fully electric or hybrid, this is the future,” he adds.
The first KVAERN bike features a 250W motor and can go from 0 to 25 km/h in 4.5 seconds. The electric bicycle also comes with a smart torque sensor technology and a practical display. The latter offers important info at a glance while riding. Launched on Indiegogo, this e bike solar charging combo has already surpassed the brand’s original goal. With 25 days still remaining at the time of writing. Backers have the opportunity to get their new e-bike at a reduced price. Colors include white, gray and bright yellow.
