Designed by VanMoof, the Smartbike functions like a normal bike except for its smart safety features.

The bike is black and sleek which makes it the perfect space-saving commuter bike. Its "Peace of Mind" anti-theft guarantee is what makes it especially unique, with a GSM tracking system that can locate the bike. If the bike is stolen, it can be tracked down with the GSM system and also alerts a "bike recovery team" from VanMoof. With this unprecedented anti-theft process, the stolen bike will be returned to the owner within two weeks. The Smartbike has other safety features including a key-less locking system that is controlled by the smartphone app.

People who bike to work every day in cities tend to feel the stress of whether or not they will have their bikes stolen -- and the VanMoof Smartbike aims to relieve that stress with its unique "Peace of Mind" guarantee.
