A folding electric bike that is super strong but super light…do you think that it’d be possible only in a dream? Maybe not, Ford has made this dream one step closer to reality with its MoDe:Flex eBike.
This is not a “simple bike”, the fully-connected cycle connects to the rider’s smartphone to plan routes, see forecasts and access fitness information. There’s also a function known as “no sweat mode” that tunes into the rider’s heart-rate in order to apply just enough electric pedal assistance to keep him or her from breaking a sweat.
Since the bike is designed to be folded and stored, it can be charged from a car outlet or with an external charger.
MoDe:Flex is the third and most advanced bike to be designed by Ford. It comes as part of a larger initiative by the automaker to increase vehicle connectivity, known as “Smart Mobility.”
