The seamless blend of fully-integrated functionality and a modern, refined aesthetic has already been awarded the 2023 Red Dot Design Award
Amsterdam-founded bike company Veloretti has released its new electric bikes in time for summer, with the sleek new Ivy and Ace Two designed with modern simplicity and safe city riding in mind. The Veloretti Electric Two range comes in two models: Ivy has a step-through frame, while Ace sports a solid high frame.
Veloretti Ivy and Ace Two come two years since Veloretti entered the electric bike market with Ivy and Ace, and have maintained what makes Veloretti’s next-generation electric bikes loved by their riders: high-quality components such as the removable long-range 540 Wh battery with a range of up to 120km, silent and powerful Bafang mid-motor for a natural push, maintenance-free Gates carbon belt drive, and step-free Enviolo gear system.
What’s new in the award-winning Veloretti Electric Two includes an even cleaner, minimalist design with more integrated cables and components and a new colour option in Dune. Look further, and there are some smart new technology features to ensure a smooth, fuss-free ride. While the Veloretti app unlocks extra features such as activity tracking, there’s now no need to look at your phone while riding the Veloretti Ivy or Ace Two.
Thanks to a new built-in display in the centre of the handlebars, riders can change their essential settings such as lights, cadence and speed, and view ride data such as the weather and the distance travelled, as well as GPS navigation to get them from A to B. Integrated buttons on the handlebar give complete control of the built-in display with just the press of a thumb, while still keeping steady on the handles.
With the Ivy and Ace Two, Veloretti has also introduced a world-first ‘Safety Tracking’ feature, which enables riders to share real-time updates of any uncertain journey with the people they trust. By pressing on the far-right integrated button for four seconds, the lights flash and a tracking link is sent to their chosen contact person, which shows the rider’s live location.
The Veloretti Electric Two has held onto its signature hyperbolic light for daily riding and added an extra safety feature for dark roads with the Osram® LED precision light. A new in-house engineered rear brake light shines instantly and brightly, so others on the road know immediately about any intention to stop or slow down.
Our riders are at the centre of our design philosophy, and we spent two years engineering the Veloretti Electric Two with all-new features that truly matter. By combining high-end technology with design simplicity, I’m excited to say we’ve set a new industry standard. It really goes beyond what I imagined when I started designing bikes eleven years ago.Ferry Zonder, Founder, Veloretti
This fully-integrated functionality paired with a modern, refined aesthetic has already seen the bikes being awarded the 2023 Red Dot Award for product design in Germany.
Veloretti Electric Two will launch in mid-June at €3299 and is available for pre-order in the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium via veloretti.com/electric. From next month, curious riders can also book a test ride in Amsterdam, Antwerp, Berlin, Düsseldorf, Hamburg and Munich.
