TAIPEI CYCLE d&i awards 2013

With AGT Bike+, JD extends its gold award-winning AGT technology to conventional bicycles. It is a handlebar-mounted, computerized unit that determines when the rider needs to shift and automatically shifts the bicycle into the proper gear. The system utilizes a combination of sensors to monitor the road speed and calculate when it's time to shift to keep a rider's cadence steady. A hub dynamo automatically recharges the battery while a built-in light sensor checks daylight conditions and activates the bicycle's headlight as needed. The easy to operate 7-speed internal gear system lets riders choose between fully- and semi-automatic mode.
