Still a project to seek funding on Kickstarter crowdfunding website, this fat bike will soon be a reality: the young team behind this concept of a bicycle with low and wide wheels in the style of the bicycles used by Charlie's Angels of the seventies seventies already earned more than $ 180,000, seven times what order, and the campaign has not yet completed. A great success for Californians company.
The goal is to create a new kind of electric bike with cutting edge technology while looking at the past for design inspiration. Motorcycles, mopeds and mini bikes of the 1970's drew the attention as durable, fun and timeless. It will have a
high quality 1000 vatt electric mid-drive motor from Bafang. Mounting the motor in the middle of the bike puts the center of gravity under the rider giving a superior balance. The 20 inch wheels with 4,25 inch wide tires cushion your ride and allow the bike to fly over any surface from road to gravel to beach.
The lockable/removable underseat-mounted lithium-ion battery will reportedly get about 20 miles (32 km) in throttle-only mode – you can go farther if you pedal. A full recharge takes 3.5 hours.
