Laka (www.laka.co), the award-winning European Insurtech that offers a unique insurance model to cyclists and businesses, has started a new partnership with the German premium E-bike manufacturer, Riese & Müller, to provide cover for all existing and new RX Connect customers with ConnectCare subscription in France, Belgium, and the Netherlands.
With this new partnership, Riese & Müller customers who buy an E-bike with an RX Chip and subscribe to ConnectCare now benefit from exclusive Laka bike insurance cover under the ConnectCare service. The new ConnectCare service comes in three options, Basic, Smart, and Comfort, and was launched this month. This shows the commitment from Laka and Riese & Müller to stamp out thieves and keep everyone riding protected.
Known for developing fully suspended E-Bikes and cargo bikes, and the innovative RX technology, the partnership with Riese & Müller builds on Laka’s existing network of micro-mobility brands across Europe such as Gazelle, Brompton, and Decathlon.
On the Riese & Müller partnership, Tobias Taupitz, Laka CEO said, “We are excited to welcome Riese & Müller to the Laka family and their RX Connect E-bike customers to the Laka Collective. We’re determined to provide them with a best-in-class experience and service. Together with Riese & Müller, we can help their customers fully enjoy their e-bike, knowing that Laka will swiftly get them back on the saddle if needed.”
Joachim Teske, Product Manager Digital Services at Riese & Müller, said:
“We are looking forward to expanding our ConnectCare Service to further European markets, connecting more customers to their bikes and giving them a greater sense of security and peace of mind. We’re sure that our E-Bike riders will benefit from Laka’s service and together with both our connectivity and recovery service we have created a holistic product.”
