EUROBIKE AWARD 2008

EUROBIKE AWARD 2008

The Jetstream hybrid is THE showpiece within the pedelec-fleet of riese und müller. An entirely new framedesign allows the integration of rechargeable battery packs in the downtube. The challenge, from a designer's point of view, was to develop a bike that does not look like an e-bike or a pedelec at all. Besides merely optical aspects the bike's visual design naturally had to meet highest functional requirements as well. Taking out the rechargeable battery packs and a fully suspended chassis invariably working with air-dampers had highest priority. The Jetstream was already attested "back-friendly" by AGR (Aktion Gesunder Rücken e.V.).
