Carbon Fiber Leaos Urban E-Bike Brings Italian Craftsmanship to the Street: Another luxury e-bike has hit the

has hit the streets and this one is handmade in Italy. The carbon fiber urban bike from Leaos comes in white or black and features an integrated 11.6Ah Li-ion battery that can be removed for in-home charging. With automatic shifting coming standard and a self-supporting unisex frame, the bicycle's wiring (and chain) is hidden within the frame so you never see any of the inner workings. The handlebar has a integrated display and though there isn't any suspension to speak of, the company promises that the special balloon tires will soak up any bumps found on the street. The e-bike comes in a 25km/h version (reaching 15mph) or a 45km/h (which is classified as a moped), and each one has speed sensors, independent torque and crank speed. The price starts at €4,980 ($6,797), but rises with every additional feature you choose, like adding gloss to the frame or a smartphone holder.
