Acer’s electric bike is smarter than its competitors
First of all, the integrated artificial intelligence is able to evaluate the slope and the pedaling speed, so that as the rider climbs a hill, the bike adjusts the drivetrain to achieve the desired electric assist. The bike can also rely on collision sensors that warn the cyclist of the presence of oncoming cars or objectswhich is probably an industry first.
On the software side, it should also be noted that the ebiiGO application allows the cyclist to configure their preferred riding settings, to lock and unlock the integrated security of their bike by pressing a button and to follow or plan their outings. In fact, the bike automatically locks when its owner moves away from a certain distance, convenient. The bike is even equipped with anti-theft alarm, an essential addition for this type of device. However, the app is mostly where you’ll go to see your bike’s battery level, for example, and have recommended routes offered.
