LEVA-EU Member Santos has recently won a public tender to supply their Bike Patrol to Belgian police forces in Gent and Antwerp. Production of the first batch has just started in Santos’ factory in Nieuw-Vennep (NL) and is expected to be delivered within a few weeks.
This public tender has been quite unique. In the near future, other Belgian forces who want to purchase the Bike Patrol will be able to do so under exactly the same conditions as for Gent and Antwerp. They can contact Santos directly since a new tender is not necessary anymore.
The Bike Patrol bicycle is equipped to cope with the sometimes demanding situations police bikers have to deal with. It has disc brakes with very considerable breaking power and 27.5 inch wheels that guarantee a comfortable and agile ride. The bike has an internal gear hub offering 14 gears as well as a belt drive. All in all the Bike Patrol is extremely durable and most of all maintenance free.
Santos constantly optimizes the Bike Patrol and has been supplying Dutch police forces with the bike for more than 15 years.
