Sanitov Studio Launches Groundbreaking Cargo Bike & Bicycle for Spring 2017

Sanitov Bicycles is launching two innovative products this spring: an e-cargo bike, the “movE”, and a stunning single-speed bicycle, called simply “speeD”. The movE and the speeD will redefine urban mobility even if they offer different experiences. The product of six years’ dedicated work, movE is both a look to the past and a leap to the future. Its design follows Danish design principles of functionality and minimalism but also takes inspiration from a classic Chinese load-bike predating the Cultural Revolution. movE is back-loaded and has a concealed, electric motor to assist the user as he/she moves about in the city. The backloaded design – which distinguishes movE from other cargo bikes - has several advantages. It improves navigation and makes it possible to transport greater quantities of goods, as stacked goods do not impair the rider’s forward field of vision. It debuted at the London Design Festival in 2010.
