This is the Xiaomi QiBike R1 road bike


xiaomi qibike r1

Well after the first teaser this morning, the cat is already out of the bag and the first photo of Xiaomi’s Qibike R1 has been revealed along with smart features.

As we suggested from the teaser this morning, the Qibike R1 is a road bike but not a budget bike designed for tootling along the path, this is a serious enthusiasts bike with complete Shimano Ultegra groupset (gears, chainset and brakes) plus a carbon frame.

Xiaomi will have the frames made in Taiwan, which is basically the Mecca for bicycle manufacturing and where the majority of high-end bicycles and components are made.

This isn’t an official release image of the bike so we don’t know the full specifications, but we do know that the bike will come with smart sensor and it’s own Strava like application to monitor your progress.

Pricing for the top of the range bike will be 19,999 Yuan (around $3000) but there are rumours that cheaper versions will also be available.

    Holy shit thats a lot of money for a bîke. BUt I guess if you do this professionally it might be a great buy. The problem with bikes is, that everywhere where they’re conveninent to use they get stolen…

      It all depends what your passion is. I’m a mountain biker, and $3k would be around the min I would spend on a carbon bike. Just like PC gamers like to spend serious $$$ on their gaming rigs, and car tuners spending silly money on a car that they could never sell for more than a couple of K.

        Yes youre right. Although LETV also offers some bikes in that price range (and under it). I think some of them even are E-bikes. But these types of bikes are for a completely different group of people

    This will be very good to have for biking lovers like me … but the price 🙁

    • March 16, 2016

      That’s not a lot for a serious road bike. Just look at the price of the Trek Madone

      • March 16, 2016

    I was working in a sport shop before and we were selling bikes. The most expensive we sold was a mountain bike for 30.000 euros! Bikes need lots of settings, and the position of the rider needs to be good as well. Not like the silly position I can see with cheap bikes in China! 🙂 I hope this one is well made.

    Will it be Helio X20 or X10 powered? What about the camera, 21 Mpx or 13 Mpx? Dual Sim?
