In many urban centres today, new concepts for the mobility of the future are being tested and implemented. Downtown areas are to be completely traffic-calmed in the future in order to improve the quality of life there. The VanMoof S3 is a consistent design advancement of the S2 predecessor model. As a next-generation e-bike, it stands for uncomplicated mobility compliant with the traffic scenarios of tomorrow. In terms of form, just like the smaller and more compact X3, it impresses with clear lines that expressively communicate the notions of power and performance. Boasting perfectly integrated smart technology, this e-bike enables urban riders to easily master long commutes. It is equipped with a powerful 250-watt motor that allows rapid acceleration. Thanks to its fastcharging high-performance battery and hydraulic disc brakes at the front and rear, it is ideally suited to meet the challenges of manoeuvring the traffic in urban areas. In addition, its customisable four-speed e-shifter and the user-friendly matrix display with 166 LEDs in the upper part of the frame deliver high convenience. Theft protection has also been integrated in the form of the near-invisible Kick Lock, an alarm system, as well as location detection via GPS. All features can be easily accessed and controlled using an app.
