A SLICE OF CAKE
The lightweight electric off-road motorbike segment started with small, dedicated manufacturers assembling and customizing standard parts from the world of cycling and motorbikes. These hybrids, equipped with off-the-shelf motors, batteries and controllers have helped to define a new direction that changes the future of riding. The characteristics of an electric drivetrain, as opposed to a combustion engine, brings a number of exciting changes.
The weight aspect is one. A dramatic reduction in weight, compared to a regular combustion bike, enables snappy and lively rides. The electric drivetrain makes riding more accessible for everyone regardless of their physical condition and experience. Everyone can comfortably handle the bike. The fact that it’s almost completely silent boosts the riding experience and serves for absolute presence and focus while out exploring. It also enhances the level of respect towards our surroundings and those sharing the space with us – whether they’re fellow hikers, wildlife or even your neighbours when riding around your backyard track.
