Qui sommes nous ?

THE ALLIANCE OF TWO BIKE INNOVATION EXPERTS

Smoove-Zoov, the French sustainable mobility champion

Smoove was created in 2008 by cycling enthusiasts who wanted to make this mode of transport accessible to as many people as possible, just as bike-sharing services began to flourish. Zoov is a technological start-up created in 2017 by three entrepreneurs from the IoT world, determined to raise the standards of e-bikes while facilitating the profitability of operators. Zoov is recognized worldwide for its connected electric bike, but also for designing the lightest and most compact charging station in the world. In 2021, Smoove and Zoov decided to join forces to become a world leader in shared active mobility. Together, we have the capacity to support you in your development of ambitious cycling policies, to develop alternative modes of transport to cars and to transform your cities sustainably.

THE BEST OF TECHNOLOGY AND 15 YEARS EXPERTISE IN SUPPORTING CITIES

Since the beginning, Smoove has designed and supplied bike-sharing services and has partnered with various operators to provide operational and maintenance support. After having conquered several cities in France - including Avignon, Grenoble, Strasbourg and Montpellier - Smoove quickly grew its international presence by installing its bikes in Batumi, Moscow, Bangkok, Marrakech, Helsinki, Vancouver and, more recently, Lima. In 2017, Smoove won, within the Smovengo consortium, the renewal of the Vélib service in Paris with 20,000 bikes - 35% of which are e-bikes - and 1,400 stations. Today, the service is the largest in the world, with over 400,000 subscribers and up to 215,000 trips per day in 2020. Smoove has been owned by Via ID since 2019, a Mobivia subsidiary dedicated to new mobility. Smoove is thus a leader in the global bike-sharing market and continues to expand by capitalizing on all of its operational know-how and innovation. This ensures that Smoove's offerings consistently adapt to the changing needs of cities, operators and citizens, to facilitate use and to make cycling accessible to as many people as possible: to contribute to making the more peaceful cities of tomorrow, with integrated transport networks.
