An Indiegogo campaign, which was launched yesterday, is hoping to bring a new ebike to market called – the Storm.
“It’s the Tesla of bicycles,” says company co-founder Storm Sonders (yes, that’s his real name). But the Storm eBike doesn’t come with a Tesla-like price. At an introductory price of $499, it lives at the low end of the range for electric bikes, which can cost $3,000 or more.
While the Storm’s 350-watt motor may not have enough power to conquer the steepest hills without a pedal-powered assist, it’s sure to be a whiz on city streets.
In addition, the Storm’s superfat 4.6-inch tires are designed to let riders tackle the beach or even the snow says, Sonders.
According to the company, the eBike will run for 90 minutes or 30 to 50 miles on a charge, and it recharges in a standard 120-volt outlet in about 90 minutes. The battery is removable, so you can bring it inside to charge and take it with you when the bike stays locked outside.
Sonders says, the Storm eBike should be available to the public sometime in June. In the meantime, check out their Indiegogo campaign. Dig !
