Bicycling has tons of benefits for commuters who want to avoid the frustration of being stuck in gridlock traffic while getting a workout in on their way to the office. The added impact that choice has on benefiting the environment is another aspect of why this trend is consistently increasing. The emergence of electronic bikes can be attributed to meeting the unique demands of those riders. Their pedal assisted design is meant to help maintain consistent speeds during long distance rides without wiping a cyclist out before their day has even begun.
However, a delicate balance exists between assisting riders without entirely negating the cardiovascular benefits of cycling. The Xmera Bionic Bike finds a way to solve that paradox by equipping riders with biometric technology that optimizes their workout or adds assistance when needed. The wearable technology paired with the bike integrates data aimed at meeting the rigors of each of its several different workout modes. From a high intensity mode that provides a grueling workout to less strenuous options meant for commuting or enjoying a leisurely ride, the Xmera Bionic Bike’s smart fitness bracelet monitors a rider’s heart rate to manage the output of its electric motor accordingly.
The cameo motorcycle styled design reaches top speeds of 20 mph on an electronic battery life lasting up to 124 miles. At this point, the world’s first truly bionic bike is still in its developmental stages. Cyclists excited to put this innovative bicycle to the test can back its development by contributing to Xmera’s crowdsourced funding campaign. Seven different pledge levels ranging from $999 to $2,499 are readily available for eagerly anticipating cyclists to be shipped in January of 2020.
