The Italian Brand “Doped Bikes” Specializes in Offering Bikes with Hidden Motors

dopedbikeslogogrande

All of the hype and controversy surrounding mechanical doping, hasn’t stopped the Italian brand, Doped Bikes, from cashing in on the publicity by shamelessly offering a range bikes with hidden motors.

Indeed, touting all kinds of performance advantages with their SuperDiscreto model (gotta love the name 😉 ), Doped Bikes is apparently trying to channel the inner Femke Van den Driessche in some of us. To wit: 

“Give yourself a boost on climbs or add the power when you are about to attack or sprint.” The brand says that its systems have already been used in many professional cycle races.

“We invented the world’s first completely hidden motor for bicycles and we are now making it available for the general public to use,” says Doped Bikes.

“Completely silent and undetectable, you can use it safe with the knowledge nobody else will realise. Featuring a remote control switch, the SuperDiscreto model has both the motor and the power source hidden in the frame with no wires anywhere on the bicycle, providing just the correct amount of energy push you need for climbs or sudden attacks in competition.”

According to Doped Bikes, with its battery neatly tucked away inside the seattube and seatpost, its 12V pedal assist motor is capable of providing up to 80 Watts of input and 50 watts of output, and it weighs just 740g.

Priced at €2,800, the SuperDiscreto isn’t cheap. But, just when you thought Doped Bikes couldn’t stoop to any lower level, they justify the cost by saying:

“If used correctly the prize money you will win will pay for the price of the motor in one year.” Moreover, “this system is much safer than a regular program of EPO. ”

Yikes!!

But, Doped Bikes doesn’t stop there. They take a page right out of Hillary Clinton’s playbook of denial and obfuscation by saying, “having no wires the SuperDiscreto model is completely undetectable in most scenarios. Inspectors must have thermal cameras to discover it. This will not happen in national level events.

“You won’t be discovered. Our earlier custom motors have won many important races with no problems. However if you are discovered do not disclose the remote control. This way you can deny knowledge and explain it is a borrowed bike.”

Does the SuperDiscreto come with its own private server we wonder? 🙁
