We loved the Cowboy electric bike when we first covered it back in April.

Cowboy was designed to embody the founders’ vision of a sleek, light and agile bike, using high-quality components and customised assembly. With its clean design the bike weighs just 16 kg (including battery) and comes with a light and compact removable battery with a range of up to 70 km.

The bike intuitively reacts to the riders’ needs from the moment they begin to pedal: the automatic motor assistance senses when the rider needs more power and adjusts accordingly, without the need to switch gears.

UK Launch

Well the Cowboy bike is now officially available in the UK. The Belgian start-up officially launched its award winning connected smart bike in the UK today.

The bike is leveraging the well known congestion issues in the UK, particularly in main cities like London and Birmingham. Electric bikes are becoming more and more popular as they prove to be the fastest means of transportation, whilst also creating a low carbon footprint.

The bike is controlled via the Cowboy app which is available for iOS and Android and uses Bluetooth to provide the owner with a safe digital key to activate the bike. A live dashboard keeps the rider informed of the status of the ride in terms of speed, duration, distance and battery level.

The app also allows users to turn the front light on and off and has an integrated navigation system. If the bike is stolen, the ‘Find My Bike’ function in the app helps to locate it via GPS thanks to the built-in SIM card.
