It is about 16 kilos with battery light, smart and pretty cool: With the Cowboy Bike wants the eponymous Belgian start-up to shake up the German pedelec market properly. Main target group are city dwellers, who use the two-wheeled new entry with built-in tailwind as a subset for the trip to work or in the leisure pleasure.
The Cowboy Bike with the reduced, sleek design has a rear wheel motor, belt drive and a removable battery with a capacity of 360 watt-hours, which should be enough for about 70 kilometers range – a long-haul Pecelec is the newcomer so not.
But it is completely networked, it is controlled by its own app, with the front light can be switched on and off and has an integrated navigation system. If the bike is stolen, the app helps to locate it. "For the GPS signal was installed in the context of a SIM card," says Cowboy.
According to its inventor, the bike reacts intuitively to the needs of the driver from the first step on the pedal. The automatic motor assist detects when more power is needed and adjusts accordingly without any circuit.
The cowboy bike costs 1,990 euros. It can be pre-ordered on the cowboy website, in the German cities are also test drives possible.
