We’re proud to say that we accompanied the French brand Cavale with the launch of their first two bicycles on the market. VROEGH Design has been involved with these products from the very start. In collaboration with Cavale we sketched the first blueprints and developed them into two aesthetically appealing E-bikes. With its minimalist style and classic look the bicycles truly fit the philosophy of this French elegant brand.
The brand is initially developed for the citizens of Paris. Customers who, in the philosophy of Cavale, appreciate classic and minimalist design. To achieve the classic look, we used relatively small chrome-alloy steel frame tubes, joined together using lugs. A proven and vintage style manufacturing method.
The small tubes left us with the challenge of integrating electrical components such as the battery, cables and controller. After prototyping, testing and evaluating, the battery position is found in a casing & mounting system which mimics the traditional frame-pump. Furthermore, we created a casing in the down tube seat stay corner to mount the controller and the cables: a minimalistic solution that doesn't clash with the design.
