LEVA-EU member Stromer developed the first speed pedelec with integrated anti-lock braking system (ABS). They worked together with Blubrake to make this development happen.

Safety, efficiency and riding fun when commuting are central aspects in the development of Stromer’s speed pedelecs. Together with the light system, tire performance, high directional stability and grip in any weather, integration of an ABS was a logical step for Stromer to increase safety.

The high demands Stromer places on quality and design required a special solution. Stromer worked together with Italian brake specialist Blubrake to tackle this challenging project.

Their collaboration resulted in the newest generation of the ST5 model, their first and only speed pedelec with ABS fully integrated into the frame.

The innovative ABS increases the safety standards of speed pedelecs by ensuring a safe riding experience, even at high speeds and with abrupt brake application in heavily congested urban environments. In other words, the new ABS prevents the front wheel from locking up and skidding to the side and ensures that the rear wheel stays on the ground, keeping the cycle manoeuvrable in any situation.

The new ST5 ABS is available at specialist dealers from June 2021.
