The Visiobike packs a lot of electronic features
The 21-kg (46-lb) Visiobike was created by a team led by Croatian designer Marko Matenda
The app lets users choose the amount of pedal assistance, among other things
The app also incorporates Google Maps
Riders can also use the app to view real-time video from a rear-view HD camera mounted beneath the saddle
The bike features a monocoque carbon fiber frame that internally incorporates a 14.5-Ah Panasonic lithium-ion battery and a bottom bracket-located MDF Drive 5.1 electric motor
It also has Magura hydraulic disc brakes ...
... and a monocoque carbon fiber frame

The Visiobike should reportedly manage around 100 km (62 miles) per battery charge under average use, with each charge taking three hours
Riders "unlock" the bike when they first start riding by entering a PIN
As the recent Charged Up e-bike event showed us, the new generation of electric bikes is apparently here to stay. While many of them simply feature a motor that augments the rider's pedaling power, some really take the whole "electronics" thing and run (or roll) with it. The upcoming Visiobike is just such a machine. With a little help from the user's smartphone, it not only provides a power boost but also lets them navigate, deter thieves, see what's behind them via a video feed, and avoid having to shift gears.
