Here is a movie that you can see well what electric bike Riide is.

Thanks to realizing a lightweight and stylish design.
Riide will steer with the throttle on the steering wheel, going swissly without pedaling.
Riide can run with a pedal as a bicycle, but if you twist the throttle it will be able to accelerate and accelerate the wheel with a motor.
Unlike electric-assisted bicycles, you can run with throttle motor alone, so you can run without pedaling. Of course, because it is a bicycle, if you run out of the battery you can run a pedal.
If you do not pedal it will speed up to 20 mph (about 32 kilometers per hour), and if you pedal it you can drive at a maximum speed of 25 miles (about 40 kilometers) at high speeds.
