Vicenza - Italy
Characterized by a stylish design, eB1 is a democratic product, easy to use and thought for the urban environment. Designed around the battery, this e-Bike is the outcome of an accurate research on details, where Emo design has focused its work to offer the best user experience. The majority of the components have been custom suggested as the handlebar integrated interface that permits to check the trip information. In order to achieve aesthetical pureness, inverted lever brakes have been designed, that, beyond easing the gesture of stopping, help to hide the stopping system cables. In addition the automatic transmission has been mounted into the wheel hub and the security system has been integrated into the seatpost. Finally the colours have been thought to satisfy to the requests of the widest number of users.
The development of this project lasted three years, during which we have developed market researches, we sketched and generated ideas as well as followed the product industrialisation in order to maintain as much as possible unaltered the initial concept. eB1 is the outcome of a collaboration within a big Italian firm and a young design studio, that together wanted to realize a project that looks at the future. It is the fulfillment of a desire by Elio Marioni, the owner of Askoll, leading company in the production of electrical engines for home appliances and heating systems, who decided to convert his company with the aim of revolutionizing the mobility market. We are proud to know that he has chosen our design studio to realize this Made in Italy dream.
