The Mando footloose is the second generation model of chainless e-bike and comes with new features to redefine, 'Future Urban Transport Culture.'
This chic and intelligent bike has already been named 2015 winner of the prestigious Red Dot and Good Design awards and its forward thinking design and features are now available to UK consumers. The Mando Footloose IM contains all the advanced capabilities of its original cousin, including the breakthrough chainless Series Hybrid Technology that powers the wheels with its internal 250 watt motor. With the Mando Footloose IM there is no mechanical connection between the cranks and rear wheel and instead they are connected by an alternator. The company further leverages its heritage in sophisticated automotive technology through its Electronic Control Unit (ECU) that monitors the bike’s condition and manages the system to optimise the bike.
The integrated technology also includes a detachable Human Machine Interface (HMI), a colour LCD computer module that mounts on the handle bars to act as a dashboard for the bike. It provides the user with power, speed, maintenance and even health/fitness information. The HMI also allows the user to select preferred modes including 4 specific acceleration modes and a pedal resistance mode for extra fitness. The HMI communicates with the bike’s to keep the user up to date in changes of terrain, maintenance checks and battery life. Once the user removes the detachable unit, the bike is unusable, thus providing a faultless security system.
The beautifully finished aluminium alloy frame is gently wrapped by a high-quality plastic covering available in different colour options, perfectly housing all the bike’s mechanisms and cabling for a minimalist appearance. A sculpted aluminium fork at the front of the bike further compliments the bikes clean, smooth lines.
The Mando Footloose IM is an ideal urban commuter vehicle. It sports a 36-volt, 8.2Ah rechargeable lithium-ion removable battery pack that will deliver up to 37 miles maximum range while pedalling. It has a top speed of 15.5 mph and weighs in at 21Kgs .
