Mokwheel Basalt Power Station e-bike revealed with 28 mph top speed, 80-mile range and 1000 W power backup
Mokwheel has launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign for its Basalt Power Station e-bike; the company claims this product is a world first. A 750 W motor powers the all-terrain bike with a top speed of 28 mph (~45 kph) and delivers over 90 Nm of torque. The motor provides pedal assistance, and a twist throttle on the handlebar allows you to rest your legs. The 960 Wh battery offers up to 80 miles (~129 km) of range on a single charge.
You can connect the bike’s battery to a power inverter, allowing you to charge other devices. The 1000 W inverter has multiple ports, including DC and AC wall outlets, plus USB-C and USB-A ports. For example, you could use this set-up to power a 5 W light for 70 hours or recharge an iPhone 8 100 times. The device is also compatible with solar panels allowing you to recharge on the go.
A built-in LED screen shows information such as the battery level and your speed, and an LED headlight helps you see and be seen in the dark. 26-in by 4-in fat tires and 110 mm adjustable suspension provides a comfortable ride. The Basalt e-bike weighs 79 lbs (~36 kg) and can support loads up to 450 lbs (~204 kg).
The Basalt St is an almost identical e-bike but with a step-through frame. The vehicle weighs less than the standard model at 77 lbs (~35 kg); the weight limit is also lower at 400 lbs (~181 kg). You can currently receive the Mokwheel Basalt or Basalt St Power Station E-bikes when you pledge US$1,799 to the Indiegogo campaign. The vehicles will eventually retail for US$2,598; shipping is estimated for August.
