IWEECH IS SIMPLY INTELLIGENT
Artificial Intelligence inside
Thanks to the use of artificial intelligence, iweech learns from each journey by integrating many parameters.
Thus, iweech can predict not only your next trip, but also the level of assistance you will need for ideal comfort and the associated need for energy.
From there and on intelligent mode, regardless of the amount of energy available on start, iweech will apply the appropriate level of assistance real time and will always guarantee you enough energy to reach destination with the best possible comfort.
Grace à l'intelligence artificielle iweech apprend de chacun de vos trajets et intègre de nombreux paramètres.
Ainsi iweech peut non seulement prédire votre prochain trajet, mais aussi le niveau d'assistance et l'énergie nécessaire associée pour le parcourir avec un confort idéal.
A partir de là, en mode intelligent et quel que soit le niveau de batterie disponible au départ, iweech applique en temps réel et dès le premier coup de pédale le juste niveau d'assistance et vous garantit d'avoir toujours assez de batterie pour arriver avec le meilleur confort possible

IWEECH IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE
At iweech, we do not compromise with the quality of design and materials and we use top brands components to offer you the best.
Chez iweech nous ne faisons pas de compromis avec la qualité du design et des matériaux, et nous utilisons les meilleures marques de composants pour vous offrir le top de la qualité.
Driving in the city becomes nonsense. It's expensive, slow, stressful and polluting. the electric car offering identical dimensions does not change much in the equation, except it is less polluting.
Urban transport with expensive infrastructure provides only partial response in terms of availability everywhere all the time ...
We believe that the response to city travel is individual and that it passes through lightweight vehicles that are small, clean and effortless for the user.
The fast, economical and clean e-bike can be an ideal alternative to cars in the city, providing that it meets the requirements of the urban program and its specificities.
For this reason, we have created iweech, a decidedly urban electric bike.
iweech breaks with all the codes to offer a unique design with its taut lines and compact look.
Above all, riding in the city must be synonymous of serenity for iweech (even if you are not a regular cyclist).
For this reason, we wanted to offer the easiest possible access bike, because the less you have to manage the more you have the free spirit to enjoy the ride and ensure its safety.
To succeed, we have equipped iweech with advanced technologies whose goal is to replace the maximum of actions usually performed by cyclists.
Using artificial intelligence allows us to bring a user experience simplified to the extreme and like no other.
• A single button to manage everything,
• An intuitive, and 100% automated assistance, optimized for every pedal stroke
• Active management of the energy expenditure to eliminate forever the fear of running out of battery to reach the destination.
Beyond the simplicity, iweech is powerful, agile and balanced, it is the perfect companion for your trips in town.
100% connected and armed against theft, it is probably one of the best urban e-bikes in the world.
Ride Smarter and make your city living easier … Ride iweech

Q. Does my iweech will fit me?
Yes, iweech is a one size fit all concept, its frame design gives universal fitting for women and men from 1m55 to 1m90, plus it has an adjustable saddle and stem height.
Q How much weigh my iweech bike?
iweech is light weight, it weighs around 18kg battery included, it is about 5 to 7 kg less than the average e-bike's weight on the market
Q Do I have to declare my iweech before use?
Yes, by using either the web site or the mobile App access.
Q. How do my iweech goes ON and OFF?
If unlock, just move it and iweech will automatically switch to “ON” mode then you only have to pedal and iweech takes care of everything. When stopped, the bike will automatically enter standby mode after five minutes of no activity.
Warning: The alarm will not be activated automatically. The bike will only be armed if you use your NFC key or the iweech mobile in App padlock.
Q. Do I need the iweech mobile App to ride my iweech?
No need of any App to use your iweech, it is one of our great pride to provide you with the simplest to access e-bike. You can ride without your phone, using the NFC key to disarm the lock and the “i.button” to manage everything. You access directly to both i.ride and free ride modes. However, connecting your iweech mobile App will allow you access more smart features of the iweech bike.
Q. What are the features I can access with the iweech App?
Through iweech App you access to all iweech intelligent features and interact with the bike. You can easily set up your bike and manage to share it with friends. You access to the exclusive iweech smart gauge that informs you about destinations you can really reach on a map, it replaces the usual “% of battery left” gauges, you also access to the intelligent routing system, and to the padlock with the anti-theft tracking system plus all iweech intelligent dashboards for ride’s survey and components status.
Q What is the difference between i.ride and free ride modes?
When freeride mode, iweech does not guarantee you to have enough battery to reach your destination, because iweech does not know where you go (either not predictable or not filled inApp). But you access to the automatic power assistance management with two profile levels: “OPTImum” for best comfort if level of battery is > 40%, and “ECOnomic” (which is degraded from OPTI) if under.
When i.ride mode, iweech guarantees you to always have enough energy to reach your destination. iweech provides you with the access to the intelligent and intuitive power assistance system that manage permanently your level of assistance to allow you to always have enough energy to reach destination with the best possible comfort.
Q. How does iweech intelligence works to provide i.ride mode? (See 3D animation)
Thanks to the use of artificial intelligence iweech learns from each of your journey’s and incorporates many parameters that will allow good prediction of your needs. It includes your personal needs as well for ideal comfort while riding, the characteristics of the course itself, the environment (ie. weather, wind, T°), the state of the components and of course the level of available energy in the battery real time. From there iweech can predict your next trip, but also the need for the associated assistance to bring yourself ideal comfort plus the need for energy to arrive in these conditions. Then, regardless of the level of energy available on start, iweech decides and applies in real time the right level of support necessary to:
· Permanently and automatically provide you with the optimum level of assistance for you
· Guarantee always enough energy to assist you until you reach destination.
Q. Do I need to enter personal parameters like my weight or age … to fill in the iweech intelligent system?
No, you don’t need to fill in any parameters at all in the system, iweech artificial intelligence works on its own, learns and calculates itself all the values it needs to be efficient.
Adding to this, iweech system is fully encrypted and compliant with the EU GDPR regulation.
Q What is the i.button ?
The iweech i.button is exclusive from iweech, it allows you to manage everything on your iweech from one single point:
1) Accessing all the information’s you need to know about your ride and the bike state, including standby/ i.ride/ free ride modes status, level of battery and state of components,
2) Interacting with bike to change mode, or to change profile when freeride (OPTI/ECO), and to pair the bike with your smartphone to use the iweech App
Q iweech is an automatic single speed e-bike, will it be efficient even on hills?
Of course, you can use your iweech to climb up hills. Whether on i.ride or freeride mode, iweech automatic assistance will always get you up the hill with the best level of comfort although as an urban e-bike iweech remains less efficient for gradient over 10%. Finally, remember that if you are on i.ride mode, iweech may smartly degrade the level of assistance on certain smaller hills to allow you to reach the destination.
Q. How do I turn ON the antitheft system and what is happening?
To activate the anti-theft defense system, simply use the NFC key and pass it in front of the beam or use the padlock within the mobile app. Your armed bike will respond with a loud warning sound if a thief moves it, and the alarm system will remain ON if the thief doesn’t back the iweech down. Then iweech will disconnect its own motor and battery to save energy and to prevent any further use of the bike, and you will receive a notification alert directly on your smartphone. Once the anti-theft system switched ON, you can track permanently your iweech real time location until you or the police find it. To switch OFF the system, simply pass the NFC key in front of the beam or let your App reconnect to the bike and unlock the padlock inApp.
Q. How does the anti-theft tracking work?
Your iweech carries its own GPS and GSM SIM(4G) inside. This allows you to track the bike wherever it is and visualize its exact position on the map within your mobile APP.
Q. If someone steals my iweech can’t they download the app and then use the bike?
No, they would need your iweech login details to use the bike normally.
Q. Do I have to remove the battery to charge it?
No. It is not necessary to remove the battery from the frame to charge it.
Q. How long it takes to fully charge the battery?
To fully charge the battery it takes ~3,5 hours.
Q. Do temperatures influence a battery?
Yes it does. Outside temperatures can be of great influence on a battery. For instance, the range and power output of a battery will be better in mild/warm weather compared to use in sub zero temperatures. (sub zero temperatures can take the maximum range to half the normal range in some cases). Also, charging a battery in sub zero temperatures may damage the battery, therefore we recommend to take the iweech bike inside until it is at room temperature before charging.
Q. With a fully charged battery how long can I use my iweech?
Iweech battery allows you to ride up to 160km with full charge at cool power, but the real innovation is that :
1) With the iweech smart gauge you know precisely how far you can ride
2) Using the iweech i.ride mode, will always guarantees you to reach your destination with enough battery.
So no need to worry about the « Km allowance ». iweech introduces a total new approach of the available range.
Q. How do the lights work?
You can change the light settings in App
Auto ON: Lights turn ON and OFF according to level of darkness
Auto OFF: You need to switch them ON or OFF manually on the App
Q. How long will the brake disks last?
Brake disks will last the lifetime of the product
Q. How do I get access to the distribution belt?
It should not be necessary for you to access to the distribution belt. It does not need to be lubricated or adjusted
Q. How the rotating stem works?
To use iweech exclusive stem, you just need to press the button on the side with one single click and rotate. As an emblematic part of the brand, all iweech stems are blue.

Risks and challenges
Making iweech from A to Z is not easy.
iweech is defining a new approach in e-bike conception, and although we are a very experienced team in designing, testing and building bikes in one hand, and in creating and producing intelligent services using IA and big Data in the other hand, we remain a small team.
Our MVP* (*minimum viable product) rolls, but un-expected challenges may still occur when you go into production which can cause delays to the delivery or request minor changes to specification in order to overcome those challenges.
Especially, we are still working on the mobile App development, this includes API development and front end, but we are confident on being able to open iweech app in both IOS and Android stores by end of April.
We ensure you that we will do our best possible job to build and deliver iweech as close to the schedule and specifications as practical.
It is true that While everything is set in place, there is no guarantee that things will happen as efficiently as planned, and We’re not immune to international events such as weather or economic issues. However, given our experience, we are highly confident and anticipate a smooth and effortless process and we are confident in our ability to meet the timeline
Every pledge amount brings us one step closer to our goal. Be a part of bringing the iweech intelligence and its e-bike technology to a wider market, and contribute to our overall goal of offering greener, and more sustainable transportation options around the world.
