An innovative and stylish e-bike made in Italy.
There are plenty of good e-bikes on the market, but there’s only one Leaos Pressed E-Bike. And it’s Italian. Designed by Italian designer Harry Thaler and made by Leaos, the bike has a sleek look and a cutting-edge build to provide the perfect blend of cool style, state-of-the-art manufacturing, and reliability. Furthermore, this is the world’s lightest e-bike with a removable battery.
Like the previous models from the Leaos series, the bicycle features an innovative frame. The Italian company partnered with automotive supplier STA Stampi, who makes the pressed frame in Bologna using the same methods employed in the production of car bodies. The ultra-lightweight frame features two pressed, laser cut, and spot welded parts.. The optimized geometry ensures a smooth, agile, and safe ride. The Pressed E-Bike weighs only 15kg and has a clean design. Housed inside the frame, the German-made 360Wh battery provides autonomy for up to 100km. The user can easily remove the battery to charge it, with a full charge taking only 1.5 hours.
Made with a 250W motor, the Leaos Pressed E-Bike also comes as a single-speed or 5-speed gear model. This means that it suits city riding or touring, depending on your needs. Other features include Shimano disc brakes, Continental or Schwalbe tires, and LED lights as well as an app-controlled display with Bluetooth. The Leaos Pressed E-Bike has received the European Product Design Award and the Focus E-Bike Design & Innovation Award 2019. It currently comes in two versions and three colors: Light Gray, Stone Gray, and Black Matte. While the brand had to suspend an Indiegogo campaign to start large scale production due to the Covid-19 situation, it will re-launch it in the near future. Photographs© Leaos.
