Bike designer Max Shojaie has taken to the Indiegogo crowdfunding website this month to launch a campaign to raise the funds needed to take the Nireeka smart electric bike into production. With still 18 days remaining on its campaign the Nireeka electric bike has raised over $260,000 thanks to nearly 400 backers blasting past the required $35,000 pledge goal. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the Nireeka Smart eBike, which comes complete with a companion application that is supported by both iOS and Android platforms.
The Nireeka features a custom-built frame incorporating a hidden battery compartment as well as an antitheft system which incorporates GPS tracking. Other features include a blindspot radar, GPS navigation auto illuminating lights with three different writing styles and a lightweight carbon fibre frame. The frame itself weighs 1.5 kg or 3.3 lbs, and the entire bike weighs less than 15.5 kg or 35 lbs, complete with battery in place.
Pledges for the Nireeka electric bike start from $799 offering a considerable 50 percent saving off the recommended retail price of $1,600. If all goes well shipping is expected to take place during June 2018. On a full charge the electric bike is capable of covering a 50 mile or 80 Kilometre range with speeds up to 20 mph or 32 km an hour.
