STOCK COMING MID MAY
The Wildsyde Beast electric bicycle is the epitome of a vintage styled beach cruiser, emulating the look of a classic motorcycle with the high center mounted ‘gas’ tank, 4” wide knobby tires and swept back cruiser style handlebars.
The powerful rear hub motor creates 81N m of torque and propels this Beast effortlessly up to a max speed of 20mph, while the hydraulic disc brakes have no problems pulling on the reins and bringing this guy to a halt. As a class 2 electric bicycle, it has 5 levels of Pedal Assist (PAS) or power zones to get you up to speed while getting the legs and heart moving, but if you want to just kick back and relax the thumb throttle will allow you to do just that. If you really want to maximize your range and put some serious pedalling in, the 7 speed Shimano shifter with the massive 34 tooth megarange rear cassette will make climbing hills a little easier, when at the top change up to a hard gear and start picking up the pace.
The Wildsyde Beast is ‘Fun’ctional - not only are you using it for moving around quickly and efficiently, avoiding traffic congestion and parking hassles, but you can also use it to haul your toys. Whether loading up the rack and optional saddle bags with your sports equipment or groceries, heading to the beach with your surfboard or the mountain with your skis, the Beast will make it fun, enjoyable and put a big smile on your face.
With a top speed of 20mph, an electric bike can take time off your commute, especially in heavy rush hour traffic. The throttle and effective PAS system helps you maintain speed without breaking a sweat, so you can show up at the office, a meeting or destination of choice fresh, calm, collected and ready to roll into whatever life brings you. Like all Wildsyde electric bikes, having a battery is eco-friendly, reducing your dependence on the car and helping to minimise the use of fossil fuels. Think of the money you save in gas and parking fees.
For some riding an eBike simply goes against their belief that you should work hard when you are on a bike. Fair enough, but we believe that life is not always about grinding up the backside of a mountain and sometimes you just want to take things easy and enjoy time in the saddle. There are hundreds of electric bikes out there, many of them very utilitarian in their appearance, boring and run of the mill. Wildsyde electric bikes are anything but - they are different, stylish and way more than just cool. They take you back to a time in your life, when riding a bike was fun, not a chore. Wildsyde bikes bring the kid out in you again, take you back to your youth and compliment your young-at heart lifestyle. You can be sure that riding the Beast eBike will be making heads turn as well as the pedals.
