An electric bike printed in 3D! This is the amazing novelty presented by Superstrata Ion, an American brand. 3D printing will bring many benefits to this new kind of bike. Starting of course with its weight!

11 small kilos on the scale and an autonomy to make some manufacturers green with envy: 90 km according to the manufacturer… This brand, little known in Europe, nevertheless seems to be gaining the interest of Internet users… More than € 2,450,000 have been collected on Indiegogo on the 85,000 hoped for… And the campaign continues until August 13! Presentation of the Superstrata Bike electric bike!

Made of new generation thermoplastic materials, it will meet European standards. The monocoque carbon fiber frame is made from one piece. No joint or glue will be added to the frame. Superstrata Ion claims that this material will not take away from the strength of the bike and give it unmatched lightness for the time being. For comparison, a classic electric bike weighs on average 20 kilos, which is double the Supestrata Bike!

Interesting performance and European approval!

On the performance side, the manufacturer assures that it will be able to travel around 90 kilometers thanks to its 125 Wh battery, which will recharge in around two hours. With a 250W motor and a maximum speed of 20 km / h, it will meet European standards well. As a reminder, in France, electric bikes must not exceed 25 km / h to be approved. The company also says it will offer 18 bespoke frames, making it suitable for riders between 1.40m and 2.20m tall.
