the elbike is a custom electric bicycle with a slick aluminum frame
sporting a premium, minimalist aesthetic, the ‘elbike’ is an affordable electric bicycle that comes equipped with a 250 watt motor. created by mike glaser, inventor and CEO of custom singlespeed bicycle company urbike, his latest creation is capable of hitting a top speed of 32 km/h (20 mph) effortlessly.
the ‘elbike‘ look is based on the same model as the urbike company, as riders can customize their e-bike from the choice of 200 colors to create a unique design based on their personal tastes. thanks to its svelte frame it can easily be confused for a sleek city bike at first glance, apart from its heavy front hub engine. this is made in germany by ansmann AG, and is paired with a removable 36 V rechargeable battery that offers up to 80 km riding distance (50 km at full speed) with a full recharge time of approximately 6 hours. meanwhile six adjustable speed-levels offer cyclists flexible and practical speed control.
the ‘elbike’ has been designed in three different sizes — 54, 58, and 62 — for different riders. it comes outfitted with shimano ‘M425’ break levers and breaks, and shimano ‘RT26’ discs for enhanced riding safety. the electric bike’s adjustable leather saddle and grips provide a comfortable riding experience, while adding a premium feel. the smart e-bike also features an integrated display that allows riders to track the status of their bike’s battery life.
