With the Mando Footloose IM there is no mechanical connection between the cranks and rear wheel and instead they are connected by an alternator. The integrated technology also includes a detachable Human Machine Interface (HMI), a colour LCD computer module that mounts on the handle bars to act as a dashboard for the bike. It provides the user with power, speed, maintenance and even health/fitness information. The HMI also allows the user to select preferred modes including 4 specific acceleration modes and a pedal resistance mode for extra fitness.
The HMI communicates with the bikes to keep the user up to date in changes of terrain, maintenance checks and battery life. Once the user removes the detachable unit, the bike is unusable, thus providing a faultless security system.
The Mando Footloose IM is an ideal urban commuter vehicle. It sports a 36-volt, 8.2Ah rechargeable lithium-ion removable battery pack that will deliver up to 37 miles maximum range while pedalling. It has a top speed of 15.5 mph and weighs in at 21Kgs.
The Mando Footloose IM is protected with its anti-theft feature rendering the bike impossible to ride without the unique key. Invented by British designer Mike Saunders, this bicycle is years ahead of its time.
Manufactured by the billion dollar Corp, Mando who manufacture batteries for Tesla and parts for BMW, the Mando Footloose IM bicycle is one of many high quality projects. The battery is removable from the frame and allows you to charge the battery with any UK or EU household mains socket. On a rapid charger, it takes only 30 minutes to fully charge its battery or a few hours on a standard charge.
Continuing pedalling will regenerate power into the battery allowing you to go further thanks to the very large dynamo/alternator placed between the pedals. The Mando Footloose IM is maintenance free thanks to its chainless design. There is no grease or rust like a traditional bike.
