Reine Bike based in Nantes (Loire-Atlantique) apparently wants to use the current dynamics of the pedelec market to find a place in this rapidly growing field. In fact, it has just launched its first networked high-end model with a neo-retro look.
The Pure Bike has a custom aluminum frame that comes in two different models: high and low. As already mentioned, the bike is also available in a classic version and a connected model. While the non-networked model offers functionality that is comparable to that of a conventional eBike, the networked version goes even further.
A focus on security and the quality of the user experience
According to a press release, the networked version of the pure bike offers the option of using the application of the same name, which is available for the iOS and Android platforms. In addition to the advantages offered by the Reine Bike Classic, it offers its user a revolutionary system that improves both safety and the user experience.
In particular, it is a device that can warn the owner of suspicious movements of the bike via a notification on their smartphone. The electrical assistance is switched off. The machine is also equipped with an acoustic alarm of 102 dB.
A downloadable identity sheet
It should also be noted that the Geolocation function of the Reine Bikes offers an accuracy of 1 to 10 meters. It is even possible to download an identity card showing the position, photo, serial number and bike code of the bike.
As for the other features, you should know that this new French UAE has such useful information. Below that we can name the calorie consumption per trip, the distances covered and the average usage time per day.
A maximum range of over 100 km
On the technical side, the Reine Bike is equipped with a central Bafang electric motor, which develops an output of 250 W and a torque of 80 Nm. The battery has a capacity of 504 Wh, which gives the machine a maximum autonomy of 120 km / h .

Note that the assistance is automatically switched off from 25 km / h. The start-up has planned a stepless hub for Enviolo. There are also hydraulic disc brakes, Schwalbe balloon tires, two saddlebag holders and a custom display Bafang on-board display.
Sales begin next July. The connected pure bike costs € 3,490 compared to € 2,990 for the non-connected model. It is already possible to pre-order them with a 10% deposit. There are four colors to choose from: khaki, gold, dark blue and cream white.
