Helbiz will launch its new shared e-scooter, the ONE-S, at the International Bicycle, Motorcycle and Accessories Exhibition in Milan.

The exhibition, which takes place between 25 and 28 November, will see the NASDAQ-listed micromobility operator display the first shared e-scooter designed entirely in Italy.

The ONE-S features the same design, integrated lights, blinkers, cables and wire elements as the consumer model Helbiz One, while also being equipped with PathPilot technology.

This technology utilises artificial intelligence and dual cameras to monitor how the e-scooter is being ridden and can automatically reduce its speed when in pedestrian areas.

The ONE-S has an aluminium frame, double suspension and dual disc brakes in the front and rear, wheels with puncture-proof tyres, and a regenerative electronic brake.

It also has a 500W electric motor, allowing riders to use the device on terrain with an incline of up to 12 per cent.

Helbiz will roll out the new model next year in the nearly 40 cities across the USA and Italy where it operates shared e-scooter schemes.

In addition to the ONE-S, Helbiz will showcase the S1-X scooter that will compete in the eSkootr Championship from next year.

The S1-X was designed by Ycom and Williams Advanced Engineering and can reach speeds of 100 km/h.

“We are excited to showcase our innovative new e-scooter models at EICMA 2021 alongside leading transportation companies from around the world,” said Helbiz CEO Salvatore Palella.

“With our industry experiencing growth unlike ever before, we are committed to providing the highest quality vehicles that meet the evolving needs of our customers – from city streets to race tracks. There is no better place to present these scooters for the first time than at the most important trade fair for the entire two-wheeler industry.”
