An Brose E-bike with several engines? Why should that be good? What the Coburger automotive supplier Brose was thinking in his study of “Vision Bike”, you know when the read more.
“The vision is not a distant future thought, but a user-oriented study. We want to show what opportunities can open up more use of electric motors in the bicycle”, explains Christoph Bantle, Managing Brose Director. It is more, to serve as the cyclist in the event. To comfort. On push of a button. So the bar into the handle of the fork can be at the vision bike retract and sink the caliper in the rear part of the bike. There, he serves as protection against theft.
Sink handlebar in Brose E-bike the frames of the fork
In the Park position, a spindle drive sunk the two right and left handlebars elements electrically in the frames of the bicycle fork. So the bar no longer interferes with shutting off of the wheel. This function will play a role also in the compact inner city bike parking garages.
In addition, the bicycle in the compact position is much easier to transport. Who is ever has been grappling with the front wheel with expansive arm in the trunk of the car, you will love the Park position of the vision bike. It then goes back on the road, the electric drive brings the handlebars in an elevated position. In addition the motor moves closer it to the cyclists, to create an optimum posture.
Also the seat of vision bike is electrified. When parking the saddle shuts form finally in the rear part of the bicycle frame. A there integrated rubber claw blocked the rear wheel in the recessed saddle and serves as absolutely effective theft protection. Also good: The park mode of the saddle much easier sitting on older cyclists. A push of a button then brings the saddle in the cycling position.
Optimal handlebar and saddle settings saved in Brose E-bikes
At the individual handlebar and saddle settings, Brose proves its origin as an auto supplier. Similar to the seating position in the car the optimal settings can be stored and called up at any time. The saddle and the handlebar in driver profile “convenient” for a relaxing tour of the city or in the profile “sporty” for a fleet tour of the grounds, for example can be adjusted electrically motorized.
Rear swinger made in the 3D printer
Of course, the Brose vision bike has also an electrical pedal-assist, which is completely integrated into the rear swingarm.
In the design of this arm Brose shows its manufacturing expertise: the swing arm has been made in the 3D as a module and then mounted on the piece. This procedure reduces the weight and offers new creative possibilities in the design of the bike.
Cooperation with car designer Murat Günak
Speaking of design: the vision bike is created in cooperation with the renowned German – Turkish automotive designer Murat Günak, who had his breakthrough as a car designer with the drawing of the first Mercedes C class. Later, he succeeded as Chief Designer at Volkswagen, where he joined with the aim to emotionalism the design of the master brand of Volkswagen. Now the star designer mixes so the two-wheeler sector properly on.
