Velco is expanding its range of motor compatibility by becoming the preferred digital partner of Italian market leader Polini.
Velco worked closely with Polini for several months to integrate the CAN protocol into the E-P3+ and E-P3+ MX engines. Now compatible, Velco’s IoT devices will be
able to send and receive data to the Polini e-drive system, turning e-bikes into smartbikes.
Stajvelo, the stunning brand from Monaco, has chosen to collaborate with Polini & Velco to reach excellence.
CONNECTIVITY IS A STRATEGIC ASSET TO BRING INNOVATION TO THE ITALIAN E-BIKE MARKET
POLINI MARKETS A ‘SMART DRIVE UNIT’ FOR E-BIKE BRANDS, THAT WILL BENEFIT FROM THE COMBINATION OF THE PERFORMANCE OF THE E-P3+ RANGE WITH VELCO’S EXPERTISE IN CONNECTED SERVICES.
Once connected to the e-drive system, Nuotrax or Mobitrax – 2 IoT devices developed by Velco – will be able to collect data and turn it into services available in the Velco Suite, a SaaS software suite offering key solutions for e-bike brands. By opting for connectivity, brands will have access to Velco Business Insight, a rider management and decision-making tool that will help them to better understand the use of their products and the expectations of their cyclists, as well as building their direct relationship with them.
We are glad to confirm this collaboration with Velco, thus giving our customers a plus in manufacturing their e-bikes. We found a professional and market-oriented partner. We firmly believe in this project and we are certain that this partnership will give an added value to the Polini E-P3+ system»

THE VELCO RIDER MOBILE APPLICATION COMPLETES THE POLINI USER EXPERIENCE
Offering distinctive features in line with consumer needs, connectivity enables e-bike brands to provide a safe, secured, easy and entertaining experience for cyclists.
Polini was already offering cyclists a mobile application enabling them to adjust certain engine parameters for a customised experience. Velco Rider, Velco’s white-label mobile app will complete this experience by giving cyclists access to a wide range of connected services:
- Anti-theft bike security: cyclists lock their bikes from the app. In the event of suspicious movement of
the bike, the rider receives instant notification, an alarm sounds and the power is shutdown. The bike
is geolocated in real time, and its position is available on the application, so you can find it again.
- Bike maintenance support: taking care of the bike is simple, thanks to a dedicated maintenance area
in the mobile app, with tips, reminders and automatic alerts. Maintenance is made easy to ensure the
cyclist’s safety and peace of mind, by reducing the risk of falls and breakdowns, and ensuring the bike’s
STAJVELO X POLINI X VELCO – WHEN TECHNOLOGY & PERFORMANCE MEET ELEGANCE
Stajvelo, the premium brand born in Monaco to ride the world, equips its e-bikes with the highest standards and chose the Polini e-drive system, as well as the Velco IoT and customised apps. Stajvelo wants to offer the best quality and services to enhance the whole riding experience.
Thierry Manni, CEO Stajvelo
At first, we only focused on the benefits for the rider, mainly the protection against theft, a must-have to reach the excellence we aim for Stajvelo. Over time, we realise connectivity can do much more, so we are thinking of a digital strategy always more innovative to offer an extraordinary ride & differentiate our brand from others.
Velco adds another e-drive system compatibility after Shimano this summer, and can now easily connect brands that chose Valeo, Shimano, Ananda, Bafang, Polini, Motinova and Yamaha. New e-drive manufacturer partners will come in the next few months. Velco is a plug and play solution on those e-drive systems, making it really easy and fast for brands to launch a connected e-bike on the market. For any other information, contact us!
