Partners create a new category of urban bicycles

Regardless of age, today’s consumers live in a connected world and enjoy a “smart” lifestyle, surrounded by the “Internet of Things” including smart fridges, smartphones, and connected TVs. This lifestyle, driven by technology, continues until they hop on their bikes. NuVinci Cycling, a division of Fallbrook Technologies Inc., and COBI are pushing the boundaries of the status quo by reinventing the riding experience with smart technology. Known for their innovative products, NuVinci Cycling and COBI joined forces to craft a joint smartbike system that meets the needs of today’s modern cyclist, allowing them to ride smarter.
