Even if we were just talking about the KVAERN e-bike, it’s fairly unique. The seat tube-less aluminum frame features a built in head shock, 20″ magnesium alloy wheels, disc brakes, and a single speed drivetrain with a rear hub drive motor, integrated battery, and torque sensor built into the crank.

It’s also pretty light at 17 kg (37.47lbs), though it does run small wheels and tires. Built with a 250w motor, the bike claims a maximum range of 50km (31 miles) out of the relatively small 36V/5.8AH battery. Limited to just one size, riders may have a hard time finding the perfect fit with a limited range of adjustment.

To us, what’s more interesting than the bike is the KVAERN+ power pack system which allows you to use solar power to charge your bike.

The kit includes the solar panel and the KVAERN+ power pack which will store energy collected from the sun and allow you to juice up your ride. Unfortunately, for now this seems proprietary to the KVAERN e-bike, so you’ll have to buy the whole package in order to get it, but it does provide hope for Telsa Powerwall-like charging for e-bikes in the near future.

You can pick up the KVAERN e-bike for €1099 plus shipping, or the bike and KVAERN+ solar panel/battery system for €1448 through Indiegogo.
