Sleek fixie wheeled electric bike climbs hilly roads fearlessly using its rider assist function
Extract the best out of e-bikes and fixed-wheel bikes – the result is this stylish fixed-gear electric bike for cities that have inclined roads.
Fixies have been a very convenient way of getting around cities and rightly make judicious use of the mechanics suited to track racing and velodromes. To top it off, they require very little maintenance, making them a favorite vehicle for young riders. One drawback is the need to keep pedaling constantly because the bicycle pedal and the rear wheel are directly connected as they do not have a flywheel. Another disadvantage of fixed wheel bikes is exposed when it comes to riding inclined hills. Designer Andrey Avgust wants to get rid of this drawback with his intuitive bike design suited to the cityscape and electrifying world.
Andrey took the hilly landscape of San Francisco as the starting point for his design inspiration, as he wanted to deal with cycling with fixed-gear bikes in hilly cities. Therefore, the Electric Fixie entered the scene – a fixed-gear bicycle that has the same principle of operation of its kind, and the added capacity of an electric drive to make riding on inclined roads as easy as on roads. level. In addition, the electric bike has traction control and regenerative braking for battery recovery. The latter is adjustable via the bike’s handlebars, and as easy as moving a sliding button on the jukebox. In the middle of the handlebars is the Apple Watch-style dial that displays current speed, battery level, regenerative braking status and more.
The clean-designed bike battery weighs just 3.9 lbs and is elegantly located inside the frame triangle. In fact, the entire frame of the bike is designed in such a way as to reduce aerodynamic drag while maintaining a very nice mugshot position. The combination of silver and matte black gives the fixie a contrasting look that showcases its urban character, and the tint of a classic in the wide spoke wheels adds a different charm to this electric fixie bike.
