Convenient transport custom-made for individuals that leads a busy life. Aesthetically it is perfect for the refined yet free spirited individual
Mando Footloose is the world’s first chain-less electric bike. The Mando Footloose leaves it up the the rider to decide whether to pedal or use the throttle. Fitted with a dual winding motor installed in the rear wheel the bike allows you to cruise up 12° hills effortlessly.
Free from gears and chains, the bike takes off quickly as you cycle, and moves as you move. A neat feature of the Mando Footloose is that when you pedal the energy you generate turns into electricity that charges the battery. However the most impressive bit of automotive technology would be the bike’s ECU (Electronic Control Unit), which is located in the center of the frame. The ECU is an integrated sensor that recognizes bike speeds and slope of the terrain, and will process that data to regulate its motor performance accordingly; kind of like the electronic assistant in a car.
The Mando Footloose is very portable, by simply pushing two levers the bike can be folded and rolled on its wheels. What we like about the bike is that its design had a strong “human focus”, designed for regular people; smooth and clean, like the latest smartphone where all the powerful technology is hidden inside and working behind-the-scenes.
The Mando Footloose achieve that unique balance of stylishness and practicality. It is a human powered transportation solution that would appeal to a wide demographic. The Footloose is currently available in South Korea and some pop up stores in Germany, selling for USD5300. The company are actively working on plans to release bike in the US in the near future.
