The FLEXeBIKE stands for innovation; a high end e-bike which can be morphed onto a standard hybrid bike when you remove the battery and substitute the motorized rear wheel with a standard one. At 19kg the bike is amongst the lightest touring e-bikes on the market, available in frame sizes:
46cm – easy entry,
52 cm – trapez, and
58cm – diamond.
The Shimano Deore 2 x 9-speed derailleur system make this bike suitable even for those steeper hill climbs. Varying support modes offer three times
the normal pedal thrust. Shimano V-brakes insure that the bike comes to a safe stop.
The supporting electric motor is a high-performance BionX-D-motor which runs on a 555 Wh rechargeable battery. Quick charging enables the rider to be back on the road within half an hour with enough power to last up to 70km (within a range of 4 varying support levels). Instead of pulling the breaks, a recharging gear can be used on downhill sections of the ride to slow the descent and replenish the battery. The large motor radius in the rear wheel ensures great torque, assisting the rider in moving forward, even up hills.
A note to our customers: Electric bikes are a great thing! However, due to their characteristics (high weight + high speed) they should only be booked by very experienced and safe cyclists with a good sense of balance. E-bikes are not appropriate for persons who do not ride bikes frequently.
