The e-bike revolution has presented a realistic alternative to the automobile. It is natural that we should now ask ourselves “how far can we go with this?”

The Electrom  goes further.

Right-size your personal transportation

(and get some exercise while you’re at it)

 

Every day 119 million North Americans commute using personal vehicles and 105 million of them commute alone. The result is the inefficient use of energy, highway lanes and parking spaces. 

The Electrom is made to efficiently move one person and their goods up to 200 kilometres in a safe, comfortable, and sustainable manner.

Do yourself a favour – get out of traffic and onto an Electrom.

Sustainable design & future proof

The Electrom can travel thousands of kilometres with little to no maintenance and was designed with reparability in mind. Many e-bikes on the market today use proprietary motors and batteries that may not be supported by the manufacturer in the future.

In planning the Electrom we set out to use as many off-the-shelf parts as possible to aid in reliability, replacement part sourcing, and speed to market. Rational design and readily available components will allow Electrom owners to keep their investment on the road and out of the landfill.

Ease of use

The Electrom stand-over height is just 17 inches and thanks to the swing-away front fairing, easily deployed centre-stand, and understeer handlebars, getting on and off is easy.

The Electrom controls are intuitive and simple, consisting only of a throttle, brakes and turn signals. These features, combined with the fact that there are no gears to shift through, makes for a very pleasant riding experience.

Generator Chain Drive

The Electrom employs a unique pedaling system, the Generator Chain Drive (GCD). The pedaling station is ergonomically positioned to allow for hours of comfortable exercise, and the GCD allows the rider to pedal as much or as little as they wish. For more information about the GCD, please see our Innovations page

Dual motors

The Electrom is a two-wheeler with a unique combination of front and rear hub motors. The rear direct drive hub motor is powerful, efficient at speed, and supports regenerative braking. On the front of the bike the smaller geared hub motor is employed to help bring the Electrom up to speed, climb steep hills, and provide extra traction.

See our Innovations page to find out more about this awesome combination.

Traffic? What traffic?

Because the Electrom is legal as a bicycle, the rider is permitted to lane-split and use bike lanes. The very narrow profile, less than 26 inches, allows the Electrom to easily slip through stalled traffic.

Pick any colour

The Electrom is built in small production runs so there is opportunity to customize, including colour choices. Early buyers will be able to select their colour choice from any automotive paint swatch book.

Low cost of ownership

The Electrom is thoughtfully designed for longevity and is simple to maintain. It will travel 200 kilometres on about 30 cents worth of electricity. The Electrom has very few parts that will wear out over time. 

We estimate the total cost of owning and operating the Electrom to be around C$0.08/km (based on a 15,000km amortization). 

 

Low cost of ownership

Electrom owners do not pay for fuel, parking, or insurance and the energy cost are minimal. The Electrom will travel 200 kilometres on about 30 cents worth of electricity.

The Electrom is simple to maintain and it is thoughtfully designed for longevity with very few parts that will wear out over time. The components that do wear out are easily sourced through a local bicycle or motorcycle shop

Cargo & passengers 

The Electrom tail-box has been designed to handle up to 120 litres of cargo (up to five grocery bags). With the easy removal of the cargo hatch, there is room for a small adult or child passenger.

No hard-to-find parts 

While the design of the Electrom is unique, it uses as many off-the-shelf parts a possible in order to guarantee buyers that spare parts will be available in the future. This also helps keep manufacturing and repair costs down.

Increased safety

The Electrom is safer in traffic than most recumbent bikes because the higher rider position puts the rider at eye level with other road users. The size of the Electrom also makes it much easier for drivers to see. The Electrom also has a full complement of bright LED running lights, headlights and front and rear turn signals, as well as dual mirrors and a horn.

Clean appearance & no greasy chain 

The Electrom is mechanically simple, and the majority of the mechanical components and wiring are placed under body panels and out of sight. The panels are easily removed for maintenance. The drive chains are also behind panels so no more chain grease on rider’s clothing.

Roadworthy tires

Dependable tires are critical on any road vehicle and the Electrom comes standard with Heidenau motorcycle tires. These tires are highway rated with better traction and a much longer road life than standard bicycle tires. Motorcycle tires are also much more puncture resistant than bicycle tires. The Electrom tires comes preloaded with tire sealant. Flat tires are no fun on an e-bike so we take every step to avoid them.

Price & production strategy

The first generation of Electroms are being produced on a small scale and sold in kit format to help keep shipping costs down. Once we have a proven market we will take the next step to true mass-production.

Pricing information is available on request for serious buyers, please note that we are scaling our production capacity and pricing points are continually changing.
