  • Cooper Bikes

    Decades of engineering expertise and a passion for stylish, urban design – this is what the COOPER brand stands for. In 1946 Charles Cooper together with his son John founded the Cooper Car Company.

    Cooper History 004 The passionate thinkers had one major goal: they wanted to produce pure bred, no-frills racing cars. After their glorious Formula 1 World Championship titles in 1959 and 1960 the stylish Brits made a name for themselves in the royal league of motorsport. Then, the Cooper Car Company was considered the world’s greatest racing car manufacturer. In 1961 the first Mini Cooper, and with it a further legend, was born.

    The Mini combined Cooper’s tuning expertise with an innovative, urban look and grew into a much sought-after cult car. With COOPER BIKES the traditional British manufacturer once more presents a seminal highlight of modern savoir-vivre – this time with two wheels. With the puristic, timeless COOPER BIKES, the Cooper Car Company enters a new era in the successful history of the brand.

    By garnering outstanding awards like the “Wallpaper* Design Awards 2010”, the “Editors Choice of Cycling Plus Magazine 2010” and the “GQ – Best Brand Extension 2010” and numerous reports in trade press and lifestyle magazines, the unique and elegant bicycles have made a splash not only in the UK but also in the rest of the world.

  • Klaxon and Zehus - Hub Motors of the Future

    We first saw the Zehus hub at Eurobike this year and were blown away by the technology. A brushless motor, battery, electronics and sensors, all contained within the hub. With a capacity of 160Wh and a weight of just 3kg, it really is an impressive unit.

    Bluetooth connectivity allows you to connect your smartphone (iOS and Android supported) to your BIKE+ all in one to select your favourite power mode, manage your trip data and even lock the bike. Your smartphone acts also as a gateway through the Zehus community, allowing you to access services such as online diagnosis, bike-oriented navigation, mobility stats and other social functions (e.g. find a stolen bike).

    BIKE+ technology represents the 3rd generation of e-bikes.

    Bike+ all-in-one is the first product released by Italian company Zehus. An innovative cycling solution that, using a sophisticated and “smart” power pack, reduces the cyclist’s fatigue by managing energy efficiently. A bicycle equipped with Bike+ all in one is a brand new type of vehicle that:

    SLIDEISPO-01_0003_Layer-41• is used exactly like a normal bicycle
    • switches on/off automatically
    • supports the cyclist during the most strenuous actions (starts, accelerations, uphill)
    • recovers the energy when it would be otherwise lost (decelerations, higher constant speed, downhill)
    • never needs to be recharged from the grid!

    Bike+ all in one is able to assist the cyclist when he needs more help without discharging completely the system by capitalising on the efficiency gaps of the human body, as well as the recovered energy, for example during braking or slope. Above all the system decreases the human effort by an optimal use of the energy of the whole system (human and bike together). How is this possible? Thanks to a fine calibration of the control system and to the metabolic studies conducted on the human body. After many years of research, a new concept of powertrain was born.

    All the necessary components have been positioned in a very compact hub mounted on the rear wheel of the bicycle, without needing cables or other extra parts for assembly. All the necessary components in this light and compact design such as motor, batteries and sensors are integrated into the hub.

    Every thing in Bike+ all in one is automated; however, a quick customisation is possible via a smartphone App, which allows to set up different parameters such as intensity of motor assistance, intensity of regeneration and so on. The smartphone App is also suitable for implementing many other features, like locking from localisation for fleet management to localisation options through the social networks.

    Bike+ is a 100% Italian product, the flagship of the Italian style and design culture through the centuries.

  • Electric Bike Review - Biomega NYC Di2

    This is not an electric bike. So what’s it doing here? Well, the Biomega NYC 8 speed incorporates a feature that is rarely seen on electric bikes - electronic gearing. We thought we’d take a look... (there is another reason for looking at the Biomega, but you’ll have to read on til the end to find out why...)

    Screen Shot 2015-09-28 at 12.52.34

    Electronic gearing has been increasingly common on race bikes over the last decade. Advantages include having all gear-shifting contained on one side and requiring minimal effort with a touch of your thumb. If the battery runs out though, you’ll find yourself stuck in the same gear. This is unlikely however, as the charge should last many days, so you’d have to be a bit careless for it to happen (Shimano state the Di2 battery lasts from between 600 to 1,500 miles between charges, with 1,000 miles an average).

    Screen Shot 2015-09-28 at 12.49.44Biomega is a premium urban bicycle brand, founded in 1998 and dis- tributing their products to more than twenty countries, from their base in Denmark. Their original design ethic was driven by a desire to not use existing bike designers, with every attempt made to avoid convention. The Biomega NYC’s key visual cue is a hydro-formed down tube, thus integrating the front mudguard function into the bike as a stylish characteristic. Another key style point are the Nightglow effect front forks, although it’s fair to say they’re not going to let you get away with not having a light.

    The smooth, quiet carbon fibre belt drive is a perfect partner to the Shimano Alfine Di2 internal electronic shifting system. Launched a couple of years ago, the 8-speed set-up is sharp, smooth, and fast. Seeing as the Di2 was designed for city bikes, it doesn’t require a rocket scientist to see the potential for touring electric bikes. One more wire placed down the tube won’t be a problem, and many e-bikes now feature carbon fibre drives.

    Screen Shot 2015-09-28 at 12.49.59The battery is in the bottom of the seatpost, with the display on the handlebars functions as a soft- ware controller, display and gear shifter, sending the signal to the hub. If you don’t know where the charge-point is, you might find it hard to locate - I spent ages searching for it, and it’s the tiniest cover underneath the display. It seems to charge from low to full within a few hours.

    The gentlest tap on the trigger is followed by an electronic buzz and the hub moves quickly from gear to gear. With no front derailleur, shift- ing is a simple one-finger affair. Other than the Biomega frame, forks, handlebars, stem and sad- dle, there are Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, 26x1,25 tyres with re- flective strips, and it comes in 45cm, 50cm and 55cm.

    The Biomega NYC 8-speed is a light, nippy bike that is perfect for city-riding (it’s stylish looks would be an attraction in an office, rather than something to hide under the stairs), and it can handle bumpy sections of road surprisingly well. Danish collaborators KiBiSi de- signed the New York / NYC shown here, as well as the Tokyo / OKO, which is currently being re- designed as an electric bike for a late 2015 release. The current OKO design concept is pictured below. Now I wonder where the battery might go on that slender frame? Perhaps between the seat tube and rear mudguard, above the pedals? Or could it be hidden in the frame somewhere? We’ll find out within the next six months when we review the Biomega electric bike...

    The Biomega NYC 8 speed costs £1,595 and is available from Velorution, 75-77 Great Portland St, London W1 (www.velorution.com • 0207 148 5572)

  • Bern Unlimited

    ‘Our goal is to make it cool to wear a helmet’

    You don’t have to sacrifice style when you wear one, says Dennis Leedom, of helmet maker Bern Unlimited

    Screen Shot 2015-09-22 at 12.20.21

    Where did it all begin?

    I began working in the early nineties with a brand called Boeri from Italy. A friend I worked with wore a Boeri helmet as a kid in the 60’s. Together we had an idea to create recreational helmets.

    What’s unique about the Bern concept?

    The whole idea of Bern was to create some differences that the market had never seen, like making head protection specific to women; no one has ever really done that, from a style standpoint, from a fit standpoint and from a profile standpoint.

    What is Zip Mold technology?

    It’s a liquid injected foam that provides a thinner, lower-profile helmet, that simply looks better when worn, and is engineered from a style standpoint.

    Has your mission changed?

    In the beginning it was one lid for all action sports. Now we are becoming more specific to each sport, like the Allston, our new helmet that’s doing great. It has a lot more vents in it for the biker, this helmet is our first specific all season bike helmet.

    What do you think about the cycling revolution in London?
    It’s huge. I think London is arguably the biggest bike city in the world. You guys have to make biking safe and inviting. I was riding in London yesterday and it was insane how many bikers there were, competing with the cars and the buses to get a piece of the road.

    Screen Shot 2015-09-22 at 12.20Why wear a helmet?

    It lets you protect your brain, the only part of your body you can’t fix. I heard a lady say ‘I don’t wear a helmet, I don’t go fast, I’m always on the pavement’. But it’s not about you, it’s about the other guy out there.

    What are you working on in the UK?

    Our mission is to raise awareness about the value of head protection. Almost half the cyclists in London don’t wear head protection. Our goal is to make it cool; the safety is common sense.

    What’s new for the girls?

    The new Berkeley, Bern’s most popular women’s bike helmet, provides superior protection, and is made from a new material. The Berkley is also stylish, great fitting, and comfortable.

    What makes Bern stand out?

    I think a lot of the success with Bern comes from the fact that we are super-passionate about action sports. We are not doing it just for a job or the money, we are doing it because we are experts at protection, and to accomplish our mission, which is to make head protection cool and something that all action sports athletes want to use. We are 100 per cent focused on protection for non-motorised sports.

    What does cycling mean to you?

    I’m a skateboarder, a snowboarder, and I ski with my family, and now I’m way into biking. I cycle 12K to work, and I’ve just bought a new bike in New York; it’s an urban commuter bike and I love it! Since I have being riding my bike to work, I have this psychology where I don’t want to get in
    my car and drive anymore. If I have lots of samples and paperwork I think, ‘Oh man, do I have to drive my car to work today?’ Once you start biking to work, you never want to go back, and that’s what’s happening in cities across the world. It’s a cultural phenomenon. Cities are smart to support this revolution – and it’s so exciting to be part of it.
