As people are becoming more environmentally-conscious, eco-friendly modes of transport are only going to get more popular in foreseeable future. We at Luxury Launches love interesting product designs and Carbon Fiber and this electric bike has plenty of both. The Leaos 2.0 Electric Bike has been designed by Armin Oberhollenzer and is hand-built in Italy. Over the years we have seen many carbon fiber e-bikes like the limited edition Blacktrail bike, Optibike OB1 and the M55 Beast Bike, but what differentiates the Leaos e-bike from the rest is that it has a smart design specially made for urban use rather than having a sporty frame. This light-weight cycle was actually designed after the famous Vespa scooter.
The futuristic looking Leaos bike might have a sleek frame but it’s packed with features and comes complete with Nuvinci automatic shifting, carbon fiber mudguards, handlebars with integrated display, and a lighting system from the German company Supernova. The pedal-assisted city bike has a self-supporting unisex carbon fiber monocoque frame that is available in two colors. It sports a re-engineered engine that not only gives the bike a smoother ride but also powers it to a top speed of 45kmph. The electric bike weighs only 22 kg (48.5 lb) and does not have a suspension system onboard but the manufacturer say s that the special balloon tires can cope with bumpy rides. It is available for a starting price of €4,980 (US$6,800 approximately), and is expected to be launched in the US soon.
