New applications of electric bicycles in the military field

New applications of electric bicycles in the military field:

The French military has introduced electric bicycles as a combat tool

Electric bicycle is a very popular travel tool at present, and with its high plasticity and convenience to extend a number of categories, in the use of scenarios continue to expand, whether it is daily travel or commercial application scale is constantly expanding, in addition to daily use scenarios, but also with the advantages of agility, flexibility and other advantages favored by the military around the world. Countries including Denmark, the United Arab Emirates, New Zealand and Australia are also featured in the article “Electric bicycles enter the military field, multiple armies are being deployed.” A growing number of armed forces are incorporating e-bikes into their combat systems, and now the French military is getting on board, announcing the completion of the first phase of testing of an electric two-wheeler.

The first model, the LMX 56, is an e-bike, often referred to in France as a high-speed e-bike, similar to Class 3 e-bikes in the United States, which can reach speeds of 28 MPH (45 km/h). The second model is a lightweight electric motorcycle called the LMX 161, which can reach speeds of up to 50 MPH (80 km/h) and weigh just 99 pounds (45 kg).

These two hybrid electric bicycles are ideal for military applications, as fast and agile combat tools can meet a variety of operational needs during combat.Promote industry technology upgrading

However, military vehicles and civilian product needs are different, and military electric bicycles usually pay more attention to stealth and fast movement to meet the needs of reconnaissance and special operations forces. For example, it may be necessary to reduce the volume when designing so that it does not attract attention and moves quickly. Civil electric bicycles pay more attention to travel convenience, comfort and high cost performance.

The difference in the use environment makes military electric bicycles usually need to have higher durability and adaptability. while civilian electric bicycles are mainly used for short trips in daily life, so the requirements in this regard are relatively low. In terms of performance, the technical specifications of military electric bicycles may be higher, including speed, driving range, etc., to meet the needs of special tasks, while civilian electric bicycles pay more attention to price and practicality. In addition, military electric bicycles are usually purchased by the military or government departments and customized according to specific needs, while civilian electric bicycles are purchased by individuals or commercial institutions, and there are a variety of brands and models on the market to choose from.

The application of electric bicycles in the military field not only improves the quality and technical level of electric bicycles, but also feeds back to the civilian market, improves the product quality and technical level of the entire electric bicycle industry, and also plays a positive role in promoting the development of the electric bicycle industry.
