Finally with a torque sensor

Lemmo One MK2 2024: this update makes the smart bike even better!


The startup Lemmo made an impressive debut with its first bike, the Lemmo One: With the unusual aluminum frame, the Smartpac — a removable battery that also functions as a power bank — and sheer endless clever functions, they delivered a smart bike in the best sense of the word!

For the new season, the bike has now been given an update that is barely visible from the outside — but which is all the more impressive! This is because the only relevant point of criticism, which we have already addressed here in our test of the Lemmo One, is to be eliminated: The Lemmo One MK2 finally gets a torque sensor, which should make for a much more natural riding experience compared to the previous version!

Thanks to the measurement of pedaling force, the motor control unit decides how much assistance the motor should provide. This means that if you pedal hard, the motor will also help you with full power. However, if you roll along at a leisurely pace without exerting much force, the electric assistance will also hold back. We have already explained the principle and the comparison to systems without such a sensor in detail in this article.

Unusual: while most bikes have such a torque sensor located directly in the bottom bracket, the sensor on the Lemmo is located on the cassette on the rear wheel.

Apart from that, there are other new features that should prove to be practical: Apple’s Find my tracking is now integrated into the Lemmo One MK2, which means that the position of the bike can also be viewed in real time in Apple’s corresponding app. However, the familiar GPS is still on board, which means that the bike can also be tracked in the Lemmo app.

Another new feature is a universal smartphone holder that is cleverly integrated into the stem: two flaps are integrated flush with the stem and are simply folded outwards to attach the smartphone, which is then held between them. An amazing solution that we have never seen on any other model before!

Equally inconspicuous, but already familiar from the first prototype, is the seat post with suspension as standard: at first glance, this hardly differs from the previous rigid seat post, but now offers the comfort of suspension.

Otherwise, the Lemmo One MK2 also retains the familiar features: these include the dual hub motor, which is now specified with 52 Nm torque. The rear hub can be mechanically decoupled from the electric drive, which means that the Lemmo can also be ridden as an analog bicycle without an electric drive. This benefits from the aforementioned Smartpac battery with 540 Wh, which can be easily removed and makes the already quite light bike (we weighed 19.2 kg with battery in our test) a further 3 kg lighter.

This bike gets smart thanks to the extensive smartphone integration, tracking functions, alarm system and electronic bell. There is also a mechanical lock for locking the rear wheel, but this is controlled electronically — which is of course also possible via the app. For more information, please refer to our detailed test here.

The colors, sizes and available drive systems of the Lemmo One also remain unchanged: the bike is available in two colors, grey and sand. For people between 185 and 200 cm tall, there is the model with a high top tube in size XL with 28″ tires. The smaller L model, on the other hand, is aimed at people between 160 and 185 cm tall and rolls on 27.5″ wheels. This format is also used by the Lemmo One ST with a lowered top tube, which is designed for people between 170 and 185 cm tall.

The extensive range of options is rounded off by the mechanical drive, which includes the Lemmo One Chain version with a bicycle chain and 10-speed derailleur gears. Alternatively, the Lemmo One Belt is available as a single speed without gears, but with the modern and clean belt drive from Gates.

All models can be ordered directly from Lemmo in the online store, the price for the Lemmo One MK2 Chain is still quite reasonable at 2,289 euros, that of the Lemmo One MK2 Belt at 2,389 euros.
