Audi e-bike Wörthersee

Really not a big fan of electric bicycles, but it seems Audi has far exceeded past design concepts as they get ready to present they’re performance electric bike for sports and trick cycling at the Worthersee Tour in Austria.

“the lithium-ion bike features a carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) frame and 26-inch wheels, the latter of which represent the ‘audi ultra blade’ design of broad, flat spokes to increase the transmission of pedal power.

located at the lowest point on the frame, the electric motor generates a record-breaking maximum output of 2.3kW:
a power-to-weight ratio of 9kg (19.8lb) per kilowatt. the rider can choose from among five cycling modes: human-powered only (’pure’), the electric motor alone (’egrip’), or pedaling supported by the electric motor (’pedelec’).

an on-bike touchscreen computer interfaces with smartphone via WLAN, and video can be recorded via the in-helmet camera and uploaded via the mobile device to the web. an online portal lets trick cyclists compete against one another, earning points for successful tricks that have been videotaped and uploaded.”
