Sparta ION represented a major breakthrough for e-bikes in the bicycle market. Indes was part of the development team of the Sparta e-bike kit. Indes was responsible for designing the instantly recognisable frame as well as the integrated battery housing assembly. In addition, we designed the display interface and the PC interface for bicycle servicing at dealerships.
Indes harnessed the experience and technology of this project to develop the Power Support propulsion device, which in turn formed the basis for other Power Assist products.
Sparta ION was voted Bicycle of the Year 2004.
