A couple of months ago, we took a VanMoof electric-bike for a test ride in Paris. While there are a ton of electric-bikes in the streets of Paris, the VanMoof Electrified X2 looks like no other. The frame is a single piece of aluminum that looks futuristic. On the handlebar, you’re not going to find any speed as the bike has an integrated automatic speed hub — motor assistance kicks in automatically when you need it the most. And when you press the boost button, you get an extra burst of acceleration.
