LeEco is a Chinese company that specializes in a vast array of “smart” lifestyle products. They’ve most recently brought their latest invention to the U.S.—a pair of smart bikes, one designed as a road bike and the other a mountain bike.
These bikes are powered by the Android OS, and include an integrated touchscreen display that helps cyclists track rides and their performance. The 4″ screen displays turn-by-turn directions tailored for cyclists, online and offline music playback, walkie-talkie communication with other LeEco smart bikes, and ride tracking. The bikes also include a vast array of built-in sensors, including GPS, a compass, accelerometer, barometer, light level, wheel speed, and crank speed. They are compatible with third-party heart rate sensors and power meters as well.
In addition, the bikes include built-in lighting (front, sides, and rear), a horn, and a security alarm. When the alarm is activated, the bikes can be set up to automatically notify their owner, and their location is tracked via the integrated GPS.
All the built-in electronics are water-resistant.
The road bike features a carbon frame, fork, bars, seatpost, and wheels, and is equipped with a 1×11 drivetrain. The mountain bike is also built around a carbon frame, with an SR Suntour XCR Air front fork, 1×11 drivetrain, and a 27.5 wheelset.
Price points for these bikes have not been released yet, but word is they should be available for purchase by the middle of 2017.Tweet Print
