The VANMOOF 10 electric bike project has been in the works for some time. First as a sketch. Then a pilot. Then a pre-release and now as a production e-bike.
The VANMOOF is a gentlemen's e-bike in a similar way that the FARADAY is on the want list of people who enjoy style. In both bikes, style comes either before or at the same time as function and technology is at the forefront, at least on the Vanmoof. The Faraday's older-school styling obscures some of the hints to technology, while the Vanmoof looks like a bike from the future.
We've ridden the FARADAY and enjoyed it too. The ride is very near identical to the Vanmoof but the moof ups the ante quite a bit with some added scoops of technology not readily obvious on the Faraday.
The VANMOOF 10 is not the greatest hill climber in our line-up, but it will climb hills. It's great for going against the wind, riding at your leisure, eliminating the need to sweat. You cruise on this bike with light strokes on the pedals, letting the bike do most of the work.
The VANMOOF is a full featured urban cruiser with fenders, built in front and rear lights, remote on/off switch, 2 power levels and 2 gears.
