The Shadow ebike could just be the electric bike. It combines lithium battery technology with a cool looking bike that any outdoor enthusiast has gotta love.
Manufactured by Canada’s Daymak Inc., the Shadow gets rid of wires and spokes, substituting a wireless breaking system, a wireless throttle and a wireless pedal-assist system. It comes in 500W or 1kW versions powered by either 1 or 2 batteries. The single battery should see you going 50km on a charge (maximum of 20° slope), while the dual will send you 100km (maximum slope of 30°). The bike itself weighs 26kg (60lbs).
Add to that a 110/240V charging system that charges the 36V battery from an external power source, and provides USB power for your iPod, cell phone or other electronic toys while riding. The first release is priced at $1,499 for the 500W model and should be on the market in June, but only 300 bikes will be made.
Most ebike malfunctions or breakdowns are caused by wires being cut off or loose contacts or by weak controllers. The Shadow Ebike with its technology solves all these problems. The Shadow Ebike has been designed from the ground up and it features the Daymak Drive controller with wireless support. The controller talks directly to the throttle, brake lever and pedal assist. First of its kind and developed by Daymak in Canada, the controller also features more torque, better battery management, regenerative brakes, and dual motor support.
