The ‘SMARTbike 2.0’ has an intergrated smart technology framelock which is powered by a solar panel. In addition to returning the bikes at the docking stations, people can now park a bike and lock and unlock using their smart phone instead of the current chain bike lock, making the users’ journey more flexible.
Designed with the user in mind and built with high quality materials, the bikes’ new upgraded features will bring an improved riding experience for customers. This framelock includes integrated GPS so any missing bikes can be easily located. The design will also help prevent vandalism with a smart lock fitted to the back of each bike that will only be released when someone rents the bike.
Not only will the new SMARTbikes help tackle the impact of the health pandemic they will also create a safer and more attractive city environment. For more info on the city's new eco-friendly wheels visit www.belfastbikes.co.uk.
