What is a vässla ?

“Vässla is the first electric bike without pedal offered for rent with a flexible subscription system and a concierge,” explains the Swedish group. Already available in Berlin and Madrid, it is naturally that Vässla is now in Paris, the capital of micromomability.

For a Sunday ride at the edge of the Seine or a trip to the office, this electric bike without pedal is the ideal means of travel. For its 25 kg, it can go up to 25 km/h and travel 40 km maximum per recharge. Count four hours to recharge the battery from 0 to 100 %. The black setting, with its clean and minimalist lines, is made of aluminum, equipment made to last.

Vässla Pedal: a design electric bike for rental at 69 euros/month

A new player in the rental of electric bikes arrives in Paris. Vässla’s strong point ? His design certainly.

Vässla is a Swedish start-up which stood out by marketing an “electric bike without pedal” that the more earth-to-earth spirits commonly call … a balance bike. His new bike, in addition to it is more “classic”, could also make an impression. Indeed, in addition to displaying a fairly original design, it is offered for rental in Paris, where Vässla is installed. Unveiled on the occasion of the day without a car, the new Vässla, soberly called “Pedal” is a compact and light vae cut for the city.

From an aesthetic point of view, the pedal is clearly distinguished from the fray with a very refined style, a single size and above all a fairly extensive integration whether in the battery, cables or lighting. These are integrated into the seatpost (for the rear light) and just under the fork (for the front fire). The battery melts completely in the large diagonal tube, as for the cables, they are almost entirely hidden and appear only at the hanger, between the brakes between the brakes. Finally, the frame is based on small 24 -inch wheels, the Vae de Vässla making the choice of maneuverability rather than that of speed. Nevertheless, this small size of wheels fits perfectly with the compact design of the bicycle.
The technical sheet is more classic, but not without interest. The Pedal has a rear hub engine displaying a torque of 45 Nm, which is just enough for the city. The Swedish bike for rent is provided with three levels of assistance but operates without speed. As for the battery, the Swedish firm does not give many details on its capacity, but announces 100 km of autonomy.

Three rental formulas with or without commitment

In addition, the Pedal has a certain connectivity since it is connected to an application which allows it to be locked and to have some information on its use such as the history of the journeys of the bicycle. Finally, what also distinguishes it from competition is its distribution model. The Pedal is a bike for rent. Vässla offers three subscription formulas from 69 euros per month (with a six -month commitment). Some formulas also include headphones, anti -thefts and even home repair insurance. Finally, it is also possible to subscribe to a package without commitment for registration fees amounting to 49 euros.

“” Launching the Vässla Pedal on the occasion of World Day without a car is an excellent example of the way we see the city of tomorrow and aligns our mission to build greener cities. By replacing the car for the shortest journeys, we can reduce carbon emissions by almost 99 %. The vision behind the Vässla Pedal was to create a work of art in the form of a bicycle – both functional and sophisticated, with a unisex frame to be inclusive “Said Rickard Bröms, co -founder and CEO of Vässla. The Vässla Pedal is available for rental today.
