This time, it’s electric—the third generation AMS Biomega bicycle has hit Vegas. Biomega has extended its product portfolio to include its first low-step electric bicycle, which mixes moped power and configuration with a city bike for urban and peri-urban commutes. While the AMS E-Low by Jens Martin Skibsted was designed to cruise the city streets in style, it also accommodates long suburban distances.
Biomega AMS E-Low
The Biomega AMS E-Low is a semi-monocoque pedelec that provides a smooth daily ride. Its mix of city bike features combined with moped physiognomy and power make it a sturdy and reliable companion for contemporary urban transport. Its low center of gravity allows for both easier entry and more comfortable cycling. Developed for city dwellers and greater urbanites, the AMS E-low features a lightweight aluminum frame that provides an enjoyable commute.
The latest Biomega AMS design offers the highest level of performance whilst truly accommodating busy urban and peri-urban lifestyles. The AMS is a lightweight and highly practical pedelec with an elegant twist.
The AMS E-Low—the 3rd generation Biomega AMS—bridges the heritage of several bikes from the Biomega portfolio, including Marc Newson’s SYD and both the NYC and OKO from Bjarke Ingel’s design collective: KiBiSi.
Jens Martin Skibsted also stays true to Biomega’s design heritage in that the bike is well integrated and chainless; it is fitted with a carbon belt drive.
The geometry holds the body in a slightly inclined, yet head-up position for navigational ease and exceptional balance. The wrists, shoulders, and neck bear minimal burdens while cycling.
The sublime combination of design features and practical elements makes the AMS E-Low easy on both the wallet and the eyes.
“The AMS is Biomega’s first low-step pedelec. It has the same overall appearance of my youth’s mopeds and is the clear heir of the award winning 2nd gen AMS. The design takes its cue from several other Biomega bikes: the sculptural down tube of the NYC, the locking hole from Marc Newson’s SYD, and several features loved about the OKO. Most importantly, the lightweight hydroformed aluminum frame makes for a clean, cutting-edge means of transport that takes you far,” says designer and Biomega founder Jens Martin Skibsted.
He adds, “This is truly an expression of Biomega’s ethos, where cutting-edge commuter technology meets high-level design. I hope savvy commuters will indulge and travel even farther every day with a sense of tranquility and comfort.”
“Our goal with the AMS E-low was simple. Create a bicycle that literally outcompete cars within urban mobility as it enables you to effortless pedal uphill, through headwind and take on longer distances in a smooth and stylish manner. In extend, Biomega celebrate infrastructure initiatives from governments all over the world which in favors the usage of bikes over cars within urban mobility – hence our vision to get people out of the cars and up on a bicycle.” – Kenneth Dalsgaard, CEO of Biomega.
