Lauva is our interpretation of the way bicycle should look and perform, that us, cyclists, would like to ride…simple, elegant, fashionable and electric. A classic bicycle equipped with the latest technology to help you enjoy your ride without an effort. Forget about flat tires, getting dirty and sweaty clothes… the city is yours! Lauva means Lion in Latvian. The project was inspired by gorgeous and powerful animals. We wanted to create an opportunity to help felines have a better life through donations for The Lion Whisperer, the organization created by Kevin Richardson.
We will donate 50€ for every single bicycle purchased through our Kickstarter campaign plus a company donation every single time we achieve goals. We want to reach 15.000 € to help minimize the number of large carnivores being kept in captivity and to highlight the direct link between the cub petting industry and the ‘canned’ hunting industry.
