小米新款智能自行车发起众筹 标价3000美元

上周,我们有幸见识了一下小米的新款智能自行车,更准确地说是小米投资的新创品牌iRiding研发的一款智能自行车,配以小米商标,售价为3000美元。目前,这款名为QiCycle R1的自行车已经开始在小米官网上发起众筹,从反馈来看,如此高的售价却依然吸引了众多铁杆粉丝的关注。

不到几个小时的时间,筹得金额就已完全超出了众筹目标。不过坦白来说,其设置的目标金额的确有点过低。小米对这款售价过高的自行车期待销售额仅为50辆。但是截止目前已经卖出了110辆。据官网显示,该项目目前已筹集了34.1万美元,自行车将于5月初发货。距离项目截止日期仍然还有两周时间,预计最后的销售数据将会非常可观。(注:当然,在众筹项目持续进行期间,用户也可以取消订单。也就是说,理论上最终总销售额可高可低。)

无论你是否对这款高端自行车感兴趣,也都可以前往小米官网众筹页面,看看网站对这款充满神秘色彩的自行车项目的详细描述。车身仅重15磅,在业内最苛刻的德国EFBe压力测试中,可以和一些高端自行车的自行车品牌媲美,例如Cannondale, Specialized, 和 Giant。自行车配有禧玛诺(Shimano)Ultegra DI2电变套件,耐高温手刹。

不过,你可能最感兴趣的还是它的智能特点。在数据记录方面,QiCycle的指针式功率表据称可同Garmin中价格相当的昂贵的矢量计量器相媲美,它可以精准记录你的活动情况。运动数据还会同步到小米的一款功能齐全的app上。这款app会记录你的运动速度、地点,来监控电变套件的能耗情况。

如果你是个智能硬件发烧友,恰好懂中文的话,可以前往小米众筹官网,查看自行车所有的技术参数细节。也许包括我在内的大部分人尚且无法从专业角度来评估这辆售价高达3000美元的智能自行车,更别说有钱去购买一辆。不过,看看有多少自行车发烧友会因为它的功能而买单也可谓十分有意思。毕竟,这辆车目前还处于测试阶段,距离最终版本还有待时日。

Last week, we got our first peek at Xiaomi’s smart bike – or rather the Xiaomi-branded smart bike developed by startup iRiding – and its sky-high price tag. But the bike, which is called the QiCycle R1, has just begun a crowdfunding campaign on Xiaomi’s site, and it looks like there’s real interest in the pricey ride.

Within hours, the crowdfunding campaign blew past its stated goal – but to be fair, that goal was really small. Xiaomi apparently was targeting just 50 sales of the expensive bicycle, and as of this writing it has sold just over 110. According to its site, the campaign has thus far raised about US$341,000 for bikes that will begin shipping in early May. There are still two weeks left in the campaign, so it’s likely that the final sales figure will be considerably higher. (Note, also, that during the campaign people can also cancel their orders, so the total sales figure can go up or down over time).

Even if you’re not interested in splurging on the high-end bike, though, Xiaomi’s crowdfunding page has also revealed a lot of details about the previously mysterious project. The bike is a surprisingly lightweight 15 pounds, but has rated comparably to high-end bicycle brands like Cannondale, Specialized, and Giant in EFBe stress tests. It features Shimano Ultegra Di2 electronic shifters, and high-heat resistant brakes.

But what you’re probably interested in are the smart features. For data tracking, the QiCycle sports a power meter that it says is comparable to Garmin’s very expensive Vector meters so that you can keep precise track of exactly how hard you’re working. That syncs up to Xiaomi’s fully-featured app, which does everything from tracking your speed and location to monitoring the power levels in your electronic shifter.

If you’re a hardcore gearhead who reads some Chinese, you can check out all of the detailed technical specs on Xiaomi’s crowdfunding page. Most of us – myself included – probably don’t have the expertise to assess a $3,000 smart bike, let alone the money to afford one, but it will be interesting to see how many cycling enthusiasts are willing to buy into the QiCycle’s promise before the finished version has been out in the world a little while for testing.
