The $261 Himo bicycle can cover 50 kilometers on a single charge, by running a 250W brushless DC motor in power-assisted mode. Its 16.7 kg aluminium alloy body is small enough to be tucked away under your desk when you reach the office, thanks to a foldable handlebar.
You’ll also find a water-resistant LCD display with info about your battery power, distance traveled, and speed. The package is rounded out with LED lights at the front and rear, disc brakes, and shock-absorbing tires.
Now for the bad news: it takes about 6.5 hours to fully charge the battery, and the Himo is only available in China at the moment.
However, it’s possible that it’ll eventually become available through online retail platforms in the country that ship abroad, like GearBest, AliExpress, and Banggood.
Xiaomi says it’ll begin shipping the Himo on July 30. You can find more information on the company’s Youpin crowdfunding site.
