Comfortable, ergonomic, safe, and completely in line with the lifestyle of the long-distance cyclist. With an electronic lock for the locker and the bicycle. The e-lock is controlled by the user with an App. Everything digitally secured with an alarm service. The HAVN has a mirror incorporated to lay your hair correctly and to paint your lips. It is the place where (fast) e-bikers turn into walkers again. “Where mobility meets everyday life.”

Who are the products or services intended for?
The (fast) e-biker who is attracted by the riding comfort (supported when pedaling, no sweat). This (fast) e-biker wears a helmet, fluorescent clothing, sturdy gloves, and has extra rain gear.

Dressed in normal clothing, such a cyclist expects the same comfort on arrival as what he experiences when arriving by car. Arrives at work, library, hospital, shopping street, concert hall, restaurant, university, college, station, apartment building, doctor, …
