E-bike technology isn’t exactly new — we’ve seen multiple scattered across the Internet for a few years now, all claiming to be the best. But there’s one issue that engineers can’t seem to get past: range anxiety.
For long-distance travelers, the ability for an e-bike to stay up and running for a significant number of miles is the number one factor when making such an investment.
A team from Ukraine has been working since 2015 to solve this dilemma, and they didn’t just beat the previous distance limit — they obliterated it. We’re talking about a distance limit that can compete with an electric car. Meet Delfast, the Kickstarter funded e-bike that can go for 236 miles on one charge.
Yep, you read that right: You can ride this puppy for 236 without a single worry. With a max speed of 35 miles per hour, the traveling possibilities are seriously endless. The best part? It’s not necessary to be in excellent physical shape to use this bike to its full potential. The three different modes allow you to pedal to your heart’s desire — whether that means doing all the work yourself or doing none at all.
This bike’s technology is actually pretty insane. It has a 3,000-cycle smart battery with energy recuperation technology and the bike’s massive screen shows useful information like charge and speed, and is visible in any weather condition. Oh, and it also connects to a bluetooth controlled mobile app.
