COBI by iCradle GmbH

COBI is the world’s smartest connected biking system for everyone. COBI became famous with being one of the most successful Kickstarter campaigns in December 2014. It upgrades every bike with 100+ modern day softand hardware features and many new, advanced and unprecedented functionalities into your smartphone. COBI imports the comfort from modern connected cars into the bike riding experience. There’s an increased number of bikers on the roads and we believe the demand for a smoother, more comfortable and more enjoyable ride has definitely increased with it. The bike itself hasn’t changed a lot, but the experience of riding a bike can tremendously be enhanced, if you go for COBI. The team behind COBI is a Razorfish spin-off, full time top-tier professionals with Audi pedigree, operating from Frankfurt/Main, Germany and led by CEO and serial entrepreneur Andreas Gahlert. 11 investors and 6 partners support COBI to launch globally in summer 2015.
