First there were smartphones, and then there were smart cars. Now, there are smartbikes. Introducing Ford’s latest smartbike, the MoDe: Flex, which can fold up and be stored inside a car but is still powerful enough for bike enthusiasts to respect.
The MoDe: Flex can interact with your smartphone for a “no sweat” mode that will actively calculate the amount of effort needed for the pedals to get to your destination without any serious physical exertion. Through the MoDe: Link app, riders are also informed of real-time weather updates, road and traffic conditions for the terrain ahead of them. The app also comes with an Apple Watch extension that can actually detect potholes in the road and will alert the rider via vibrating handlebars when they near these hazards.
