Mokwheel is currently crowdfunding for its Basalt and Basalt St Power Station e-bikes. The vehicles have a top speed of 28 mph (~45 kph) and a range of up to 80 miles (~129 km). The motor permits both pedal assistance and twist-throttle power. With the compatible inverter, you can use the bike’s battery to power or charge devices such as smartphones and lights.

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.
