Remember the article on Leonardo DiCaprio and Blake Lively driving through New York on ebikes? What the article did not mention is, that the two are cruising on Swiss-made Stromer ebikes. Stromer developed their initial concept for ebikes in 2007 and offer since modular ebikes for urban mobility. Already in 2009, around 500 Stromer ebikes were driving all over Switzerland. Stromer offers an entire product line of modular ebikes, that ranges from basic urban bikes to powerful off road mountain bikes. Their user friendly web shop offers many different options and variants, so users can choose a completely individual state-of-the-art ebike. Stromer ebikes come with a powerful integrated accumulator, that is hidden within the Stromer designer frame. Customers can choose between a basic urban version with 250W motor that allows to drive 15.5mph (25 km/h) up to a powerful 500W motor with 28 mph (45 km/h). The basic bike is equipped with Shimano Deore gear and brakes that are able to recharge the accumulator.
Stromer offer state-of-the art designer ebikes that are a real alternative to the Faradey-Porteur pledge at Kickstarter and come much at the same price of around 3000€.
