The über-e-bike for the smartphone generation: the Stromer ST1 X

High-end commuter e-bike with touchscreen goes 40kph / 28mph

Swiss electric bike company Stromer's new ST1 X is an urban e-bike with a touchscreen, fully integrated design and digital connectivity through Stromer's cloud-based platform called Omni.

Two versions are available dependent on local speed laws. The European-spec ST1 X can deliver either 25kmh with a 250-watt motor or 45kmh with a 500-watt motor. The US version tops out at 28mph (45kph) with the 500-watt motor.

Three colors are available as well as a version with a dropped top tube

Stromer ST1 X integration

Unlike some e-bikes, Stromer blends integration with its ST1 X. The battery resides in the down tube, all cables run internally, and the rear hub motor camouflages well within the rear wheel. The button-free info control panel is unobtrusive, sitting flush with the top tube. Fenders and a rear rack are included as well. 

Like other Stromer bikes, the control panel sits cleanly in the top tube

Stromer ST1 X connectivity

Omni is Stromer's cloud-based platform. An onboard SIM card allows the bike to talk to your smartphone. The data it can relay includes maintenance records, firmware updates, bike system status and location of the bike. It can also immobilize the motor (if bike is stolen), lock/unlock the bike and do performance tuning. 

The touchscreen on the top tube shows current speed, battery percentage, and selected pedal-assist mode. 

Stromer ST1 X pricing and availability

The ST1 X is available now for $4,999 / £4,990. Stromer bikes are not sold in Australia.
