Thömus, a Swiss company, is showing us the future of speed pedelecs with the Twinner 1 Pro. Thömu Binggeli, a former Stromer forefather, planted the company’s roots back to 1991. Thömus created a Swiss-made mountainbike for Olympic medalist Mathias Flückiger. Anno 2023 the company shows the next step in the bicycle industry with the Twinner 1 Pro.
What is the Twinner 1 Pro?
The Thömus Twinner 1 Pro is an innovative, revolutionary speed pedelec made with state-of-the-art carbon fiber technology. Combining powerful motor and battery technology with the convenience of two wheels. The Twinner 1 Pro creates a new riding experience that takes performance and convenience to a new level.

With its sleek design, intuitive controls, and responsive handling, the Twinner 1 Pro is a game-changer that puts speed and convenience at your fingertips.
What sets the Twinner 1 Pro apart from the Specter 1 speed pedelec is the combination of its carbon fiber frame for a lightweight and stiff ride, furthermore the built-in display on the handlebar for access to various IoT solutions. The Specter 1 has a Bosch mid-motor and an enviolo stepless gear hub in the rear. The Twinner in the meantime has a 12-speed Pinion gearbox in the middle of the bicycle. The newly developed Transverse flux motor is fully integrated into the rear wheel.

This 3.5-inch touchscreen and the IoT solution allow the Twinner to receive OTA updates, much like the Stromer. Moreover, it comes with GPS and tracker, an Android and/or iOS app, Blubrake Anti-lock Braking System, 29-inch wheels with Vittoria tires, and a Gates carbon belt, making it the perfect high-speed bicycle.
