Meet the Elbike

The coolest electric bike for the best price

Munich, (lifePR) - The Elbike is an electric bike made by Mike Glaser, the founder of urbike in Munich, Germany. After running an extremely successful campaign on the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter in August, the Elbike is now ready to start production.

It only took a few hours online for the Elbike campaign to pass its funding goal of $30.000. 30 days later the campaign endet with a whopping 445 backers and more than $500.000 in pledges. “I would start every day with a look at the campaign and a big grin on my face. It was amazing to find such a community online and not only answer questions, but also have really constructive discussions about the bike. The Elbike became even better through this campaign!” says Glaser.

The Elbikes minimalistic design combines modern aesthetics and high performance. The durable and lightweight aluminum frame features an integrated, removable battery. Powered by an Ansmann AG front hub engine made in Germany, it has a maximum speed of 25km/h (Europe) or 20 mph (USA), and offers up to 80km riding distance. Six adjustable support levels provide flexible and practical speed control, all visible via a display at the handle.

The electric bike also features an innovative belt drive instead of a regular chain. Advantages of the belt drive are that it needs no oil, less maintenance and it offers a nearly soundless riding experience. Additional features are the Shimano M425 break levers and breaks, and Shimano RT 26 discs for riding safety. Three frame sizes (52, 56, 60 cm) and adjustable leather saddle and grips provide a comfortable riding experience.

After finishing as one of the most funded German projects on Kickstarter, the Elbike is now available for pledges on Indiegogo. It’s expected to be shipped in February 2018.
