Daymak Inc. will be showcasing the EC1, a carbon fiber electric bike, at
Daymak has chosen to develop this ebike using a carbon fiber frame because carbon is lighter, stronger, and more stable than both aluminum, titanium and steel frames.
Advanced carbon-fiber composites have been used in recent years to lighten planes’ loads. These materials can match aluminum and titanium in strength but at a fraction of the weight, and can be found in aircraft like the Boeing 787 and Airbus A380, reducing such jets’ weight by 20 percent. The next generation cars and planes will all be based on advanced carbon fiber based materials.
“I have always wanted a carbon fiber frame bicycle but it always seemed that it was for a selected few due to the price. The future is now,” states Aldo Baiocchi, founder of Daymak. “Carbon is stronger than steel at a fraction of the weight. With the launch of the EC1, not only have we made an ebike using a carbon fiber frame at an affordable price, but we have included an extra rim to convert it to a regular bicycle all at a very low price: 2 for 1.
The EC1 (Electric Carbon One) is a full featured electric bicycle that comes with a 24V lithium battery pack and 250W motor weighing only 34lbs. The EC1 ebike comes with an additional wheel that can be used in place of the EC1 motorized wheel. By converting it into a standard bicycle, the weight is significantly reduced. Several upgrades are also available in different packages.
Daymak is offering early adopters an even more exciting price starting at $799 USD on Kickstarter until Dec. 3 instead of $1899 USD.
