City individual vehiclesbecome more convenient, efficient and compact thanks to the use of heavy-duty structural materials and original engineering solutions. Startup HiMo Electric Technology introduced the HiMo electric bike on the Indiegogo crowdfunding platform, which folds easily and can always be near the owner.
A small but powerful electric bike withWith 7 inch wheels it is able to move with a maximum speed of 18 km / h at a distance of up to 30 km. Low weight (14.5 kg) and an effective system of operational folding the bike will allow you to take HiMo with you to the office, metro or even an airplane (with the battery removed). When folded, the bike has dimensions of 455x320x330 mm.
HiMo is driven by180 W electric motor, rear-wheel drive and 7500 mAh battery. The design of the battery weighing 1.8 kg makes it easy to dismantle and replace it with a spare one. Charging the battery takes from 4 to 6 hours, and it is designed for 1500 recharging cycles.
The control system is enclosed in a compact unit,located on the steering, and has an LED display that displays information about speed, battery power and headlight settings. Power, speed and headlights are controlled with a single button.
HiMo Merit Engineer Workawarded the Reddot Industrial Design Award. Each of the 200 parts, 40 molds and bike settings over two years of development have undergone rigorous testing and testing.
HiMo project at Indiegogo, until the end of the fundraisingfor which there are two more weeks left, has already raised about 190 thousand dollars with the necessary 10 thousand. You can order HiMo for $ 469, and the first models will go to customers in May of this year.
