British manufacturing company Modern Times Ltd have launched a 13.6kg motor-assist singlespeed bike, and claim it’s the world’s lightest full size electric bicycle.
Aimed at the growing commuter market, the £1650 Cannondale Capo Cytronex conversion will help with hill climbing and is a fast accelerator, kicking in with only one pedal stroke with the added benefit of being light enough to carry if necessary.
With a range of around 25 miles per charge, a sensor continually monitors pedalling speed so that just the right amount of power is applied.
