Bicycles equipped with the ISP seat technology can justly be called the safest bikes in Europe! Thanks to the patented Intelligent Seating Position, an invention of Andries Gaastra, the bike has a multivariable seating angle. This allows any person with a height between 145 and about 200 cm to sit on this electric bike. The most remarkable thing is that the rider can always put both feet on the ground at the same time, something that greatly enhances the safety of cycling. Losing balance is definitely a thing of the past!
ISP offers welcoming benefits:
- You are now lower to the ground but it is still a normal bike. There is no question of a children's bike here.
- No panic: the negative
gut feelingof so-called
fear of fallingis over.
- You cycle much more relaxed now, especially in the city.
- Dangerous mounting and dismounting procedures, a cause of 15% of all accidents, are eliminated.
- As a result, you always stay comfortably in your saddle at every stop.
- The more upright sitting position optimizes the view of other road users.
- More sustainable: less resources are used, transport, storage, and packaging costs are reduced, and delivery times are shortened.
INTELLIGENT SEATING POSITION (ISP) from Gaastra:
Smart, Lean, and Green!

Fall alarm for older cyclists
GRONINGEN - We know that older people fall faster than younger people. But for the first time this has now been scientifically confirmed. And the results don't lie, because the chance of falling off a bicycle for people over 65 increases by more than seven percent every year.
