Optibike has a new prototype

Optibike was one of the first United States companies to introduce electric bikes to the ever-growing market. They were also pioneers in mid-drive electric bicycles. Their 10-year old emtb model is getting a little bit boring considering that we have now Haibike, Giant, Cube electric bicycles with Yamaha, Brose, Bosch electric mid-drive motors. They have noticed it also, and that is probably why Optibike introduced new renderings of their latest model:

The new Optibike Carbon Elite Series R15C

The R15C is a combination of everything we have learned in the last 20 years of designing and building electric bikes and racing motocross for 20 years.

The R15C now has an ultra high capacity removable battery, which give quick access to all the wiring and controller. Maintenance is simplified as all components can be removed in less than 15 minutes.

The final version of the frames will be here this month.These bikes will be available in limited quantity in 2018.
