It has been announced that Vittoria and Zehus will work together to enhance the development of new power technologies for e-bikes.
Zehus is a Milan-based startup with a direct connection to the Polytechnic University (Politecnico di Milano).
“Rather than simply a plug-powered recharging mechanism, humans will need to use and recharge energy as they ride, for the most eco-friendly solution”, says Rudie Campagne, Chairman and President of Vittoria.
Together with Zehus, Vittoria will create a complete product offering, consisting of a smart wheel system (Zehus all-in-one system, built in a Vittoria wheel), complete with Vittoria Graphene tires, optimized as a match for green urban mobility.
In teaming up with Zehus, Vittoria will compliment its current product range of tires and wheels, with a smart wheel system. Out of the box, this system will be ready for installation on consumer bicycles, as well as on the assembly lines.
Zehus and Vittoria will set up a new company (VZ Industries LTD) in Taiwan for the production of Zehus power units. The first Zehus hubs will exit the new Taiwanese production line in September 2016.
