X One e-bike, a facial recognition e-bike to hit the market in 2020

Design plays an important and sometimes even a key role in purchasing products. The team behind the X One e-bike is also aware of this fact. This gorgeous piece of electric bike design is trying to attract you in the campaign on Indiegogo.

The main asset of the bike is not only the design that Mat Rauzier has taken care of but also the multiple patented technologies that take its performance to the next level.

The futuristic X One has integrated an Android-powered touchscreen computer into its top tube. It allows users to perform various functions like setting motorized pedaling assistance level, checking current speed, and monitoring the battery’s charge status.

Besides, its powerful facial recognition software looks for the owner and automatically unlocks the bike when the owner is identified. Powered by Rayvolt’s EIVA control technology, the owner has all the settings for the bike available at the touch of a finger.

The aluminum-carbon frame also features a nearly invisible slipstreamed 42 volt, 16Ah battery that promises a motor-assisted pedaling range of either 50 or 75 km (31 or 47 miles) on a single charge. This removable Samsung or Panasonic battery pack takes around 4 hours to get fully charged.

With the 250W or 750W rear hub motor, the X One reaches a maximum speed of 25 km/h (16 mph), but there is also a Power version that promises a decent 45 km/h (28 mph).
