ective / Pedelec


ective is an electro-mobile city bike for the 21st Century fitting the needs of the elderly.
In Germany, more than 50% of the population regularly ride their bikes. It‘s used for transportation, physical activity and is an important factor in the integration into social structures.
But with everyday road hazards and fears of serious falls, older people often get to a point where they park their bike forever.
ective attempts to identify development opportunities to make cycling safer and easier in the future.
