The Mando Footloose claims to be the world’s first chainless hybrid electric bike, using your pedal power to generate electricity through the built-in alternator. The hybrid drive system brings the power directly to the drive wheel with its high performance dual winding motor, while at the same time also serving as a generator: When you pedal, mechanical energy transforms into electricity and feeds the e-bike battery – to a certain extent self generating. By adding energy the standard range of 30 kilometers can be increased even more. Using a throttle, the motor drive can be controlled and you can ride the Mando Footloose even without pedaling. An Electronic Control Unit (ECU) will monitor your terrain via embedded sensors, adjusting the gears automatically so you don’t waste energy – be it electrical or sweat-inducing. Bikers will be able to monitor their distance, speed and electricity levels via the Human Machine Interface (HMI) that sits on the handlebars. Remove the HMI and the bike automatically locks, meaning any potential thieves will need to use pedal force alone to get away.
