Van Moof A5 is the latest model from the Dutch electric bicycle manufacturer, which is famous for its bold designs and high-tech products. The Van Moof A5 was introduced with the S5, but the A5 looks more friendly to all circles, following the previous product X3.
If the S5 still carries the design lines like its predecessors only with new technology and features, the A5 comes with a beveled frame approaching the step-through model. This is easier with some of the mid-step frames we've seen. The A5 is for riders 155-200cm tall with 24″ wheels.
This electric bike is equipped with a new Gen 5 front wheel hub motor with 250W continuous power. The rear mechanical has electronically controlled internal gear and is equipped with a torque sensor and boost button which is useful when going uphill. The 463 Wh battery is kept in the frame, while the drive uses a belt with a cover, so the ebike looks clean.
The A5 features headlights and taillights integrated into the frame. While the battery condition and gear position will be displayed in the integrated light on the handlebar. The A5 features lock and anti-theft.
Weighing 22kg, the A5 can travel 55 km, with an additional battery it can reach 140km. Also available accessories in the form of front and rear shelves. It costs about $2,998 in the United States.
