Many people say that e-bikes have eliminated the fact of workout that used to be associated with the bikes. But, a Romanian has designed its e-bike to provide solution to that argument. The Xmera is designed to address that concern of workout, by varying its level of assistance based on the rider’s heartbeat. It is the ultimate e-bike for getting a workout on the go. It is a ‘Bionic Bike’ with body sensors and loads of smart tech in a retro-looking chassis. Not only that, the bike is with the BPM (heart beats per minute) that they wish to maintain.
Coming to specs of the e-bike, the first thing is that it has an associated iOS/Android app. It is there for rides to select the type of workout they want. For example it has different modes, which ranges from fat-burning, cardio, high-intensity intervals, etc.
Besides that they have an included electronic bracelet that monitors their pulse. Whereas, they use a compatible third-party BPM-capable fitness tracker. On the other hand, once they start riding, the wearable transmits their heartbeat data via Bluetooth to the bike’s micro controller. It responds by continuously varying the amount of pedaling assistance provided. Thus, it keeps the rider in their BPM zone while delivering the selected workout.
The Xmera gives you many options; riders can switch off the Workout function, using the Xmera as a regular e-bike. In that case, it either delivers preset levels of assistance, or it can be used in a non-pedaling throttle-only mode. Moreover, if its onboard sensors detect that a crash has occurred, the app will alert a predetermined list of contacts.
Now the battery or power, the basic model features a Bafang 250-watt rear hub motor, powered by a 36V/10Ah Samsung lithium-ion battery. So, this combination delivers a top motor-assisted speed of 16 mph (25 km/h), and a range of about 37 miles (60 km).
Besides that basic model, riders can choose the speed ranging from 750-watt to dual front-and-rear 500-watt motors, along with dual batteries for extra range. On the other hand, other than the workout, rider can also opt for a “Smart Helmet” as well. This device monitors the wearer’s brain waves, instructing the bike to deliver more assistance as they get tired. Basically, it there it helps the riders to reach their top speed more effectively.
