Highly discerning e-bike riders demand what only this bike can provide: the ultimate speed, performance, and sexy looks of a high-end Urban bike, with the added convenience of the smoothest, most powerful motor available. You don’t want to casually spin to work or around town, you want to own the road and even give cars a run for their money. But along with raw power, you want the latest battery technology, and all the electronic bells and whistles, plus compatibility with a fender and rack system to fully equip the bike for commuting. Make no mistake: Turbo is not your neighbor’s e-bike!
WHAT Incredibly burly yet sleek and racy alloy frame with Performance Geometry for high-speed riding with fully-integrated downtube battery, internal routing, thru-axle dropout and full fender/rack mounts.
WHY Strengthens and stiffens the frame in the critical areas to handle the added weight of a battery and motor, and the rigors of riding at up to 45 kph, while still steering and braking nimbly and safely.
HOW Custom tube shapes, such as the super-oversized downtube and fork are stiff enough to handle the large forces placed on the front end during steering and braking, while shaped seat and chainstays and a 12mm through-axle beef up stiffness and strength around the motor and rear brake.
CUSTOM LI-ION BATTERY
WHAT Custom Turbo Li-Ion battery.
WHY To provide maximum power for quicker acceleration and higher torque.
HOW Our engineers found the finest quality Li Ion cells with the best “C-rates”—this means they allow for maximum power to be pulled out to the motor. They optimized the battery management system specifically to our motor, rather than relying on a generic system like other brands. Finally, the cells have been carefully placed to facilitate the quickest cooling.
DIRECT DRIVE HUB MOTOR
WHAT Turbo Direct Drive rear hub motor.
WHY To maximize efficiency in power transfer from motor to forward motion, while minimizing wear on drivetrain.
HOW By putting the motor directly inside the rear hub we assure that all the power generated goes directly into forward motion—nothing is lost or wasted in the process.
JOYSTICK INTERFACE SYSTEM
WHAT One-handed operating control unit for all bike functions.
WHY While resting your hand in the regular grip position, you're able to operate your motor support level, read and change your cyclocomputer information, control regenerative braking, and shift gears.
HOW By combining the visual display, the Joystick, the sensor for regenerative braking, and the shift lever into one clean, compact and fully integrated interface unit.
