The 'Piece of Mind' service available on VanMoof bikes have given plenty of riders an increased level of security, but the brand's newest Smart Bike adds even more security features. The current system of Piece of Mind security guarantees that if a VanMoof bike is stolen, a team of dedicated "bike hunters" will track down and return the bike to the owner. Unfortunately this service generally only returns 2.5% of VanMoof bikes.

In an attempt to further the security of its bikes, VanMoof has introduced a new set of security features on its newest Smart Bike. The new security system utilizes the bike's touch-sensitive technology and integrated speaker system to literally growl at potential thieves. The growl, which has been compared to a wildcat, will activate once the bike registers that someone other than the owner is handling it. The growling will eventually grow louder if it is not deactivated and the integrated lights will start flashing. The security system on the new VanMoof bikes is furthered as it sends a notification to the owner through the VanMoof app.
