US-based M2S Bikes has set up a Kickstarter to fund the development of the All-Go lightweight electric bike made with carbon fiber.
According to the company, the electric bikes currently on the market can be very heavy, which makes loading them onto a bike rack or pedaling them home harder. However, the All-Go Bike is reportedly more versatile and lightweight, weighing 33 pounds including the battery. It can reach speeds of up to 28 mph with a motor that can deliver over 600 watts of peak power.
‘The lightweight design that we were able to achieve with the carbon fiber frame combined with the mid-drive motor solution that delivers power to the pedals makes for a very well-balanced bike that is really fun to ride and can out-perform most other electric bikes in large part because of its weight,’ said founder Robert Crews. ‘Although some bikes have larger motors, the power to weight ratio we're able to deliver makes this bike a great all around bike perfect for commuting, fun rides and light off-road terrain.’
