eczo.bike Converts your Bicycle into an eBike

A bicyclist and an engineer from eastern Russia have created a product to help you keep up with the electric revolution, without having to buy a new e-bike. The eczo.bike is a universal kit that can convert most bicycles into e-bike in about an hour. The powerful mid-drive system can climb up to 30 degree inclines (without cycling assist). The eczo.bike can accelerate to 28mph.

"We just want to make a product that could fit almost any bicycle to give its owner real mobility in all kind of terrains, despite his or her fitness level."Oleg Evseenkov, CEO eczo.bike 

The kit comes with a management system that includes an on-board computer, control panel, twist-grip throttle, and pedal sensor. An app is also works with eczo.bike that gives users diagnostics, software updates, navigation, tracking, and even an anti-theft system. There are two battery options to choose from – 570 watts and 1000 watts. Charge time is between one to two hours, and the battery can be locked by pin-code on the on-board computer.

"After more than 100 user tests and a lot of customer feedback, in 2017 our team made an improved product with a 2-stage gear and even higher torque that make it possible for bicyclists to use all their front gears (other mid-drive e-bikes have only one front gear, so when not using electrical power, you can only change rear gears." Oleg Evseenkov, CEO eczo.bike

Key Features Include:

  • Powerful mid-drive capable to ride up 30-40 degree slopes without bicyclist’s assist
  • Capacious (1 kWh) fast-charging (80% in 1 hour) Li-ion battery for 50+ mi rides
  • Lightweight (adds less than 22 lbs with big battery) and ideally balanced
  • Unique tunable design
  • Fits 80% of bicycles (excluding folding ones and with very curved frames).

To see if the kit will work with your bicycle, you can email eczo.bike a photo of your bike and they'll let you know if the kit will work. eczo.bike plans to launch a crowd funding campaign later this year, but you can learn more about these versatile kits by visiting their website. The price during campaign will be $1200-1300 for version with 570 Wh battery and $1600-1700 for 1 kWh battery. Delivery is planned in June-July. eczo.bike

Bosch Presents New E-Bike ABS

Safety is a decisive factor for E-Bike riders and their environment. The world's first production-ready E-Bike ABS now enables controlled and stable braking, even under difficult conditions. Bosch has been an expert in ABS systems and a market leader in motorbike safety systems for over 40 years. The E-Bike ABS was developed in the basis of the already established ABS motorcycle. Your safety is enhanced through the combination of front wheel ABS and rear wheel lift control. The pressure at the front brake is regulated during difficult braking manoeuvres and stabilises the riding situation – an advantage particularly during trekking and city riding. Enjoy extended sporty rides, the cycle to work or a cruise in the country with added safety.

ABS for the Front Wheel

With the E-Bike ABS, high-resolution wheel speed sensors monitor the speed of both wheels. As soon as the front wheel threatens to block - for example in the case the brake is applied too forcefully - the Bosch E-Bike ABS regulates the brake pressure, thus optimising the riding stability and steering capability of the E-Bike.

Rear Wheel Lift Control

As soon as the E-Bike ABS detects that the rear wheel lifts, the ABS control unit briefly regulates the braking pressure acting on the front wheel. The rear wheel lifter reduces the probability of overrun.

Controlled Braking Force

Over the past decades, the braking systems have been continually developed. In recent decades, with the cable pull, hydraulic and disc brakes, the braking force has significantly increased. The eBike ABS gives the rider more safety when handling the braking force.

User-Oriented E-Bike ABS

The Bosch E-Bike ABS offer is specifically designed for city, touring and trekking bikes with 28-inch wheels and thus offers increased protection especially in this segment.

Market Launch of Bosch E-Bike ABS

The first E-Bikes with ABS will be on the road with selected fleet partners from autumn 2017 onwards. Bosch E-Bike ABS will initially be used for the Performance Line Cruise and Speed in combination with Intuvia on trekking and city bikes with 28 inch tires.

Pedelecs with Bosch E-Bike ABS will be available for purchase from autumn 2018. New formulation: As an expert with over 40 years of experience in ABS and market leader in motorbike safety systems, Bosch is now applying its expertise to pedelecs. Long-term Bosch partner Magura is providing full support as a development partner for brake technologies. For more information, visit Bosch-EBike.com.

rad-power-2018-models

Rad Power Bikes, a Seattle-based direct-to-consumer electric bike company, today announced their Model Year 2018 electric bike lineup, and includes the all-new RadCity Step-Thru model.

The RadCity Step-Thru is the first new addition to the Rad Power Bikes lineup since 2016, when the company released their last bike in their original four-model lineup. The bike features all the popular aspects of the original RadCity Electric Commuter Bike, but with a redesigned, low frame for easy mounting and swept-back handlebars for a relaxed, comfortable ride. With the lowest stand-over height at 20-inches, the RadCity Step-Thru answers the demand of those Rad Power Bikes’ customers who are more comfortable mounting a lower model.

All 2018 Models come with frame redesigns which now feature partially integrated downtube for a more streamlined fit with the battery and a lower center of gravity. Additional changes to all models include: Longer range thanks to a 48-volt 14 ah Lithium battery using Samsung cells, new handlebars with wider hand positioning for comfort with everyday use, 4x brighter headlights providing a safer ride at night, and universal accessory mounts to add front and rear racks and baskets or a Yepp Maxi child’s seat.

“Since our start in 2007 we have delivered tens of thousands of ebikes to our loyal customers, and we’re excited to expand on the features and the construction quality that has made each model so popular. We’ve received a ton of positive customer feedback, and we have also garnered tremendous input for future enhancements,” said Mike Radenbaugh, CEO of Rad Power Bikes. “We’ve analyzed that feedback and used it as critical input to our 2018 model year refresh. We remain totally committed to our customers and our planet with highly sustainable electric bikes that are reliable, affordable and built to withstand just about anything.”
