First Amazon Alexa-enabled ebikes available from Halfords this summer

Amazon Alexa will allow you to speak to your bike, telling it to give directions or traffic updates, turn on lights and play music. The Cybic E-Legend will be the first bike in the world to include these functions. It will be exclusively available from Halfords for 12 months, starting this summer. This smart bike will be shown publically for the first time next week, at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). It will be available with or without an electric drive.

Navigation uses a built-in GPS receiver and turn-by-turn spoken directions in addition to mapping on the integrated screen. Other handy functions include sending messages, adding items to a shoping list and ordering a takeaway. All this can be done safely by voice command while riding. Data is handled by a Vodafone sim which comes with three years of free data.

Integrated Screen can provide a range of information

Other features of the Cybic E-Legend bicycle include an integrated security lock and an alarm. The alarm can notify you via a smartphone app whick also allows you to track the GPS location of the bike.

We’ve seen innovations in alternative commuting go from strength to strength and after electric bikes we predict that the next big trend for commuters will be smart bikes. The Cybic contains all the features you love about Alexa, but now in a bike. The technology will help cyclists with many things including getting traffic updates, getting turn-by-turn directions, personalised light settings, playing music and much more.
