Volata's new bike is more than just a sleek bicycle. At its heart is an embedded computer with a 2.4" screen that is seamlessly integrated into the handlebar to give you info like GPS, heart rate, metrics, and more. It also doubles as an anti-theft device using motion detection and GPS location to track and secure the bike. 

What if the battery dies? Volata created a front-hub dynamo that recharges the computer when you ride so you'll never have to think about recharging. As for the bike, it features a 7005 aluminum frame, carbon fiber fork, and a belt drive with internal gear hub. The bike is now available for reservations and will be delivered to customers next year.
