Our Ultimate Holiday Wish List: Stromer ST2
Reward your favorite eco-conscious commuter with this souped-up, connected e-bike. The ST2’S battery lasts for up to 93 miles per charge, and riders can enjoy motor-boosted speeds of up to 27 miles per hour. In addition to toggling settings via buttons on the handlebar, the rider can tweak them in the Stromer smartphone app for Android and iOS (not advised while riding!). The ST2 looks decidedly high-end, so you’ll want to ensure it stays safe. To that end, it comes with several antitheft features: you can lock and unlock it remotely, and when it’s locked it will remain immobilized. Plus, if someone does try to haul it off, the owner will receive distress texts complete with GPS tracking information.
