Aera / electric cycle for daily use


The „Aera“, an electric cycle which is suitable for daily use, allows eco-friendly and healthy movement in all weathers. It is especially suitable for short commuter distances. A unique combination of weather protection element and foldable cabin makes it possible to choose between three states: open riding when the weather is good, a closed state to protect from rain and a space-saving storage mode. Thanks to the hybrid drive, consisting of muscle power and electric energy, physical activity enriches everyday life. Thereby the strain is adjustable according to individual needs to avoid exhaustion.
