Lightweight, beautiful, and with tons of cool features. The new addition to the family of eBikes is called Nireeka.
It has a solid carbon fiber frame that makes this bike ultralight and easy to take it with you anywhere. Carbon fiber is a material originally used in the aerospace industry that has a high strength to weight ratio. It is 33% lighter than aluminum and up to 10 times stronger. The frame of Nireeka is really solid and weighs only 3.3 lbs (1.5 kg). The entire smart eBike weighs less than 35 lbs (15.5 kg).
You can use Nireeka as a normal bike with the 10 speed Shimano gears, but with the help of 500W electric hub motor, you can enjoy a ride at up to 20 mph (32 km/h) and the range up to 50 miles (80 km). All that on a single charge. Want more power? No problem, you can upgrade the motor to a 1000W version.
The best part of Nireeka is that it is an eBike literally loaded with cool features. We are talking about Fusion X suspension, hydraulic disk brake, 10-speed Shimano gear, an anti-theft tracking, alarm system, blind spot radar for traffic coming up behind you, special auto-light system and USB charging for your smartphone.
One of the coolest features, in my opinion, is the heartbeat assist. Just connect your smartwatch or phone with the app, and Nireeka gives you 3 pedal assist levels and a heartbeat assist mode. The bike can monitor your heart rate (the app gets the date from your smartwatch) and change the amount of assist you will get base on how fast your heart is beating. The higher heartbeat you get, the more assist you receive from the motor.
- Purpose-Built frame with hidden battery
- Built-in App (iOS, Android)
- Assist mode based on heartbeat
- Blind spot radar
- GPS navigator
- Anti-Theft system (GPS tracking)
- Autolight with 3 different lighting styles

The basic model Nireeka will cost you $799 (50% off retail price) + shipping. That gets you a 250W Bafang hub motor with a top speed of 15 mph (25 km/h) and a range around 35 miles (55 km). If you’d like, there is a model Nireeka Homie with a 500W motor, 22MPH speed, and 50-mile range for $999. An additional $99 will unlock you an upgrade to that 1000W motor for even faster speeds if you need.
