EP0 by Maxwell Motorbikes offers Current Addition to Conventional Design

View all 12 Photos

Many city commuters and pedal purists will always have a soft spot for the same, basic bike on which they learned to ride. Despite an unassuming appearance, the traditional frame and mechanism have wide appeal and an endearing nostalgia that we just can’t let go. Modeled after the familiar form, the EP0 Ultralightweight Electric Bicycle from Maxwell Motorbikes stays true to convention with an unexpected boost; weighing in at just 27 pounds, the compact bike promises speeds consistently over 20 mph thanks to a 300W Freewheeling Electric Hubmotor, a full vector motor controller, and 250wh Lithium NMC battery pack concealed within the frame. In just 45 minutes the Maxwell EP0 can be fully charged – from a normal wall outlet – to a range of 10-20 miles. Designed to “make sense” for every lifestyle, the lightweight bike goes wherever you do: up or down stairs to an apartment or office, on the subway, and, of course — on the city streets. Whereas most electric bikes appear cumbersome, without much attention to the placement of the bulky battery, the EP0 packs a major punch in its sleek sporty geometry because its power comes from every frame-member. Check out their recently re-launched Kickstarter campaign by the RIT grads who conceived Maxwell and claim your own bike for as little as $850 or fully customize your own when you pledge at least $5,000. The pinnacle of speed and style, the Maxwell EP0 Ultralightweight Electric Bicycle efficiently takes you where you need to be.
