Letizia Zitoli - 07-févr.-2018 15:40:56

After Marrakesh, Helsinki, Moscow, Vancouver and many more, Smoove  is now the official supplier of the Vélib’ network across the Paris region.

Smoove already runs public bike share schemes in 28 cities and 14 countries including a scheme in Slough  that they’ve run for the past 4 years. This year some 24,000 bikes and 1,400 stations will be rolled out in Paris. Around 30% of the bikes will be electric with a ‘Smoove box’ battery in the frame and a motor incorporated into the front wheel. 7,500 electric bicycles will help users to conquer Paris’ steep hills, get around the French capital and 68 spots surrounding the city.  A revolutionary service: electric and connected bikes For almost a decade, French firm Smoove has been offering innovative, smart and connected bike-sharing solutions to support the development of sustainable mobility and to contribute to making our cities greener. Once fitted with a ‘Smoove box’, the bike becomes smart and connected.

For security, all bikes are fitted with a Neiman steering lock as well as a cable incorporated into the handlebars to block steering. Optimal management of public spaces Smoove also supplies the high-density docking stations, requiring very little civil engineering work to install. The city and the operator retain the full control over the deployment and layout of their network, and are free to adjust the system to ensure optimal management of public spaces and smooth traffic flows. Robust equipment for public use in urban spaces Bikes are ultra-secure, tough and designed for optimal user comfort with: 26-inch wheels with puncture-proof tires double-wall aluminium frame and rims with tamper-resistant wheel nuts. a comfortable adjustable saddle customised front basket By the end of 2018, Smoove will supply more than 30,000 smart bikes worldwide. It takes 30 minutes to convert a manual bike into an e-bike: the addition of a Smoove box battery in the frame and motor into the front wheel. The French company is set to become the world leader in shared e-bike systems integrated into urban mobility networks, contributing to reduced CO 2 emissions.
