Scandinavian mobility companies
In our Scandinavian mobility companies trilogy, we would like to introduce the Cake Åik. Other than Danish MATE Bike, Vässla and Cake are coming from Sweden. For some reason, the designs of the three Scandinavian companies look different than for instance German or Dutch e-bike companies. The bicycle market relies on parts from global third-party component manufacturers. But designs of frames and what components are being used depending on the mobility companies’ philosophy.
