Santa Monica, California – June 1, 2015. Vela Bikes is launching the Vela Model 1 – a beautiful, electric single- speed cruiser with a Li-ion 370Wh removable battery, GPS tracking, anti-theft alarm system, and a control panel with a USB port, battery life LED indicator, and charging port. The battery has a range of at least 15-20 miles and can be fully charged in 90 minutes. Users can track Vela via GPS on their Google Maps application – compatible with iOS and Android. An internal 100dB motion sensitive, remote controlled sound alarm activates if anyone tries to steal the user’s Vela. The Pure Pedal Assist System allows for a clean look – there are no throttles or switches. In fact, all of the electronics – including the wires, connectors, circuits, and the battery – are inside the Chromoly Steel frame with a classic look.
