Leading Edge Gear Week: Electric Mountain Bike

View Images
Bike-500

Sure, tens of millions of electric bikes will be sold around the world this year—more than ever before—but only one is for hard-core performance riding, the OB1 battery-powered dual-suspension mountain bike. The patented drive system integrates with the bottom bracket for a seamless boost as you shift among the nine gears to climb killer steeps or power across flats. Here’s hoping the technology filters down to
a more realistic price soon (it currently sells for $13,995).

Each day this week we'll feature an innovative new product featured in our October issue's ADVENTURE's Leading Edge story, on newsstands now. Preview it here.
