In most cities, the unfortunate reality for cyclists is that the municipal police force won't do much to respond to instances of bike theft, so the VanMoof Electrified X2 gives riders peace of mind by outfitting them with their own personal bike militia. That might sound intense, but VanMoof's appropriately named Peace of Mind service equips any VanMoof Electrified X2 owner with a team of Bike Hunters who promise to scour the city -- and indeed the globe -- to track down and return a stolen ride.
VanMoof's bicycles are all equipped with powerful GPS tracking, and this lets the Bike Hunters know where a stolen ride is. The Hunters should thus be able to find any stolen ride, but if they can't within two weeks, VanMoof will give riders a free new bicycle to make up for it.
