When developing nam: e, Rehau relies on its many years of experience as an automotive supplier and combines this with innovation par excellence. Not only bike enthusiasts can look forward to the result. Germany as a business location also benefits. The special manufacturing technology enables production on the doorstep in Europe.
Load capacity up to 280 kg
What is special is the construction of the frame, which can hold up to 280 kilograms, is manufactured using a new process and is made of innovative composite materials. With its deliberately modern and individually designable design, Rehau wants to inspire a wide target group with its world first: from bicycle fans to sporty people, from toddlers to grandmothers and from Helsinki to Lisbon.
Bicycle adapts to individual driver requests
The bicycles of the future should be as individual as their riders: in just a few steps, the bicycles should be able to adapt to every living situation and taste. For this reason, ideas are presented at the EuroBike trade fair on how the e-bike body can be manufactured in all desired colors and with various surface structures as well as extras tailored to the design, such as a child seat or a fold-out suitcase. At the same time, it also enables the smartphone to be stored and charged securely and elegantly in the body and, hidden in the housing, still offers plenty of space for accessories. Since all common functions can also be optimally integrated, it is easily possible to network the smartphone with the components of the e-bike body and thus control it via apps. On top of that, the owner can influence the weight of his bike by deciding how many batteries he will need for his ride and connecting it via a plug & play system. The future also promises great things: In cooperation with bicycle manufacturers, many new products and designs as well as other possibilities for integrating functions can be developed based on this innovation.
By the way: the e-bike body is 100% recyclable. With this, Rehau makes a sustainable contribution to environmental protection. (yup)
