Nireeka Revenant e-bike with 1,000 W motor and ABS is crowdfunding on Indiegogo
The Nireeka Revenant e-bike is crowdfunding on Indiegogo. The bicycle has integrated ABS, a more unusual feature for an e-bike. The system uses speed sensors on the front wheel to detect your speed and a situation where the wheels could lock. The standard bike model has a 250 W motor and 480 Wh battery.
The optional upgrade to the 1,000 W Bafang motor allows top speeds of 35 mph (~56 kph) and up to 85 Nm of torque. This model also comes with an 840 Wh Samsung battery that enables you to travel for up to 50 miles (~80 km) on a single charge. Using the accompanying fast charger, you can fully recharge the battery in three to five hours. Built-in hydraulic disc brakes provide shorter stopping distances, and a headlight and tail light ensure you can see and be seen in darker conditions. Fat tires and a full suspension system, with 140 mm travel front and rear, help to provide a comfortable ride.
An LCD shows information such as your speed and journey distance. You can currently receive the Nireeka Revenant standard and 1,000 W electric bicycles when you pledge CA$2,647 or CA$2,991 to the campaign, respectively. The company suggests it is more affordable, thanks to cutting out the middleman. Plus, according to Nireeka, the pledge level is a 33% discount off the MSRP. The company is shipping to many countries worldwide, with orders to be fulfilled in February.
