ective / Pedelec


ective is an electro-mobile city bike for the 21st Century fitting the needs of the elderly.
Its integrated stabilizing system holds the bike in the upright position. Two rapidly rotating metall discs produce a gyroscopic force which supports the driver when getting on or off the bike and in
dangerous situations like icy or slippery roads.
ective is designed as a rental system. Its innovati-
ve form guarantees a long durability in the urban space. Every detail of the bike was developed and approved in close collaboration with seniors and their needs.
