SMINNO and the BIKE & OUTDOOR COMPANY GmbH & Co. are revolutionizing the future of digital biking and taking networked mobility to a whole new level.

Since it was founded 20 years ago, the company has presented itself as a modern multi-channel retailer with an extensive range of bicycles, bicycle accessories and clothing.
“Mobility has changed significantly in recent years. Today, cycling has to meet new requirements, such as information processing and provision or entertainment. The use of smartphones while driving is therefore becoming more important every day. The BIKE & OUTDOOR COMPANY GmbH & Co. has recognized this very well and offers its customers a system with the AI cockpit from SMINNO that fits exactly into their concept - simple, self-explanatory and smart. We are very happy to work with such a strong sales partner, because access to the bicycle branch network enables us to address a new, large customer base," says Sohrab Noorzaie, SMINNO founder.
With the cleverly designed hardware CESAcruise S, SMINNO integrates the smartphone perfectly on the handlebars. Universal, sound-enhancing and simple - the holistic solution of hardware and software with an intelligent assistance system allows safe use of the smartphone while driving.
