Helbiz has entered into a partnership with Wheels, a platform that allows the sharing of electric vehicles and which owns a technology that provides for the integration and the relative use of the helmet when using the vehicle.

These are innovative two-wheeled devices, which have the peculiarity of being equipped with a particular seat, useful for being more comfortable when moving around the city. The vehicle, thanks also to a low center of gravity and the availability of 14-inch wheels, help to make moving around safer even on uneven surfaces which unfortunately are commonplace in large cities.. Still on the subject of safety, it should also be emphasized that Wheels has recently launched a first-of-its-kind integrated helmet system, available to users and shareable for every use.
