Imagine an e-bike. They are nothing new. But again and again a bike comes along that really inspires – and it is charged while riding.
In the range of 25 to 70 pounds, with common characteristics Like pedal assist, cruise control, and LED safety lights, e-bikes offer some great benefits for the urban commuter.
E-bikes have become popular in almost every country and help solve problems such as reducing traffic in the city centers, allowing people to commute to work with longer commutes, and even have become an economical rideshare and great alternative method of transportation become.
Enter the new one Rocket e-bike, which has a relatively light frame and offers shift, brake, cruise control, pedal assist and an intelligent LED display for measured values such as speed and charge status.
It does everything you’d expect from most e-bikes, but with one big difference – it charges while you use it.
Charging without wires
In order to have a fast, motorized pedal assistant, an e-bike needs one thing: a power source. Like almost every e-bike on the market, it comes in the form of a (fairly heavy) cell battery. You take it off the bike, stick it on a charger, and put it back in when you’re ready to ride. With the rocket you don’t have to (at least not all the time).
Perhaps the coolest advantage of the Rocket E-Bike is the Kinetic Energy Recovery System, which transfers energy to your battery while you are idling, braking or driving downhill. It literally charges while you drive.
The Rocket E-Bike uses a 48V, 15Ah Panasonic cell battery hidden in the frame and a 250W or 750W motor option to get the bike going. The integration of the battery into the frame (no less a collapsible bicycle frame) is always a hurdle for e-bike manufacturers, however it can be done.
The bike also has fat off-road tires and an impressive 100 mile range. Oh, and it has a snap frame and pedals for compact storage. Check out the Rocket eBike’s Indiegogo campaign Here and grab a bike before the supply runs out.
The Rocket is the first model from Rocket eBike. The pre-order price is $ 999. The company expects to launch two more models in summer 2021 and three more models in summer 2022.
