Time for the mobility turnaround

The Cooper legend comes to life 

The Cooper Bikes brand was born from the Cooper Car Company, the company behind the original Mini Cooper. A brand whose achievements made it a legend. Influenced by John Cooper’s vision, the legend is now coming to life in the Cooper Bikes brand.

For decades, the Cooper name has stood for successful and world-renowned engineering. The brand found its origins in the 1950s and 1960s, when John Cooper and his father Charles developed the first car of their newly founded “Cooper Car Company”. The Cooper 500, a revolutionary rear-engined racing car, was to be the starting point for a fundamental change in motorsport as well as the car industry. In 1961, John Cooper launched the Mini Cooper – the birth of the legend. It is this history of technology and innovation that makes Cooper what it is today. 

Influenced by John Cooper’s vision, the legend is coming to life in the Cooper Bikes brand. Today, Cooper’s focus on technology and innovative engineering is no longer on cars, but on bikes and pedelecs. Cooper e-bikes represent the design and innovation that once made the Cooper brand famous. With new ways of thinking, Cooper Bikes wants to change the urban e-mobility market and provide modern and sustainable locomotion.

In cooperation with the German company TechniBike, Cooper Bikes would like to bring John Cooper’s visions and spirit to life again in the future – the realization of innovative and modern technologies combined in a purist design.

Our vision is to develop the ultimate in urban electromobility

In addition to the use of sustainable and durable materials, such as classic steel frames, and the continuous optimization of the entire production and supply chain, TechniBike GmbH as a manufacturer also enters into a cooperation with Climate Partner and manufactures all products climate neutrally. The Cooper e-bikes are thus also produced in a climate-neutral manner and the CO2 emissions that inevitably occur during production are offset by supporting certified climate protection projects. For the production year 2022, more than 3,585 tons of Co2 could thus be offset. The compensation corresponds to 26,880 saved economy flights from Munich to Berlin or more than 10 million kilometers of travel by car.

This vision is realized in the four new Cooper Bikes models, which are produced and distributed by TechniBike GmbH in Germany. The new Cooper e-bike generation combines state-of-the-art technology with unmistakable British design.

Just like racing cars in the past, Cooper e-bikes are equipped with a rear-mounted motor. Hidden in the rear wheel hub, the compact system combines drive, battery and electronics in one housing. This enables effortless progress in the city and maintains the classic purist design. Thanks to KERS technology, also known from Formula 1, the battery can even be recharged while driving. To maintain the purist design, all bikes are controlled simply by smartphone via the Bitride app instead of via a display.
