MINO / Electric bicycle


The electric bicycle MINO is a compact short range cycle made for movement in heavy crowded metropolises.
The MINO is inspired by Trail Biking and is driven upright, this allows the cyclist to react more agile in sudden situations.
A frame composed of syntetic material reinforced with an aluminum core, ensure resilience and a lightweight body.
In addition the MINO is powered by an electric motor that supports the pedaling of the cyclist. A reflecting white body ensures safety at night.
The MINO is made for those, daily facing the urban jungle.
