Mechane electric bicycle and their ecological movement

Electric bicycle ERMES is built by Italian startup company Mechane. This project aims to promote sustainable mobility through innovative electric bicycle ( ecological materials: wood instead of plastic details ). Their vision of ERMES Ebike is also a statement: “Move more with electricity”.

That is exactly what Mechane team was doing themselves. Raising awareness about personal mobility in Europe, and on a big Electric bicycle tour around the USA. In this text we will concentrate more on this ebike, rather then on the trip and tour. However, if you wish to read more about Mechane adventures in USA, just go to the end of the article and check out the video!

This electric bike comes with an Italian ebike motor. The OLIEDS mid-motor is the heart of “Ermes”, made with eco-friendly and recyclable materials, comes from Forlì, but for the rest, the e-bike designed by Stefano Celegato and Alessandro Cerrone has components that come from the province of Venice (the wooden frame is made by a company from Monza).

OliEds Mid-Motor for electric bicycles used by ERMES

Olieds is a new name for us. The motor is Italian made 250-watt mid-motor drive with 3.9kg weight and 80 Nm of torque

The driving torque shows that the motor is designed to deliver a maximum thrust up to a cadence of 60 rpm, while maintaining a high motor output even at higher rotational speeds.
The power of a motor is calculated by multiplying the torque by the angular rotational speed. As a result, as the cadence increases, the power increases to a peak point that allows cyclists to reach their maximum riding speed (which is however limited to 25 km/h as required by law).
