Since its inception, Islabikes has been a world leader in children’s bikes. But for a few years now, it has also been spearheading the market of specially designed bikes for the over 65s.
The brand has always been renowned for integrating major innovations in its bikes, achieving fully ergonomic, functional and accessible developments for all, regardless of age, gender or fitness level. Islabikes manages to make cycling and moving around by bike not only a fun and healthy activity, but also suitable for absolutely everyone.
And what would happen if we combined the most iconic Islabikes versions with the MAHLE ebikemotion hybrid pedalling systems? Well we now have the answer, in the form of the eICONS range. What’s more, its launch was accompanied by one of the biggest recognitions in the product design industry sector.
The first contact that this new range of hybrid bikes has had with users could not have been more successful. The Red Dot jury, one of the most symbolic awards in industrial design, awarded it the “Product Design 2020” recognition for excellence in its design and innovation.
Red Dot have been global leaders since 1954 and often set future trends that are almost certainly to be implemented in the mainstream in the coming years. This is one of the best recognitions for all of the work done by Islabikes since it began.
The first two electric versions of eICONS are the eJanis (road version) and the eJimi (mountain bike version) Islabikes models. They stand out for the smooth, controlled and non-intimidating pedalling assistance provided by our light systems, also achieving a total weight of just 14 kg, something which up until a few years ago was unthinkable for an electric bike.
The eJanis and eJimi Islabikes models will be available to the general public at the start of summer 2020 and you can stay completely up to date with all the latest news on them by subscribing to the Islabikes website at this link:
