Stromer

The Swiss don't make cars, but that doesn't mean they don't know how to travel in style. Cue Stromer, a mix of Swiss ingenuity and years of design that lead to the creation of a new form of urban transportation: the e-bike. Stromer was founded by Thomas "Thömu" Binggeli, who founded his own bike shop with the money he gained from the sale of his parents' livestock, unbeknownst to them.


Stromer ST1 eBike

This grassroots method has a true success story lurking behind it, as Binggeli won the Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award in Switzerland in 2006. By 2009, the first Stromer e-bike was available on the market. Only two years later, the Stromer ST1 was unveiled, and the bike has racked up sales throughout Europe and even helped launch the brand to a United States market.

Recently, this past March, Stromer revealed the next model of e-bikes, the ST2. This bike sets a precedence in the world of transportation, as it is the first digitally connected electric bike in the world. The ST2 communicates with its owner through a smartphone app that is available on Apple and Android platforms, and the bike can also receive commands. The ST2 has uniquely crafted innovation, quality and great performance, all while remaining true to its Swiss heritage.

The current headquarters of the Stromer brand is completely sustainable and upholds its core values of environmental friendliness through the use of a 44,000 square foot facility that operates completely on power from solar cells on the roof.


Stromer ST2 eBike

The original e-bike model, the Stromer ST1 began the trendsetting with a sleek appearance and innovative technology. A lithium-ion powered battery is completely integrated and can quickly be removed for charging with a simple button, or the unit can charge onboard. The 500 watt motor is gearless, providing for an ultra-quiet drive, and the virtually maintenance free operations provides reliable transportation form day to day.

The ST1 offers easy to use features for every rider and type of travel, as four separate power modes are just a button away. The bike delivers excellent hill climbing ability, and built with Schwalbe Big Ben tires for maximum shock absorption. All Stromer models have disk brakes and a lightweight carbon fork.

The newest model, the ST2, features a similar 500 watt motor but adds an additional 35Nm of torque. With the ST2's Omni interface, the bike has real-time telemetrics, GPS, GSM, and Bluetooth capabilities. Omni allows the rider to change power modes, acquire ride information, adjust energy consumption, and engage regenerative braking features.

This regenerative braking system is unique to the ST2, as the breaking system feeds energy into the battery when used. The ST2 can also be equipped with the custom designed Stromer City Kit Which adds blending fenders, a rear wheel carrier, and customized Supernova headlights, and a rear light for safety. The st2 is indeed the future of e-bikes, and perfectly merges Swiss design and ingenuity with the latest technology to make cycling fun.
