A bold innovative e-bike
In the world of electric bikes, you can now enjoy an almost infinite variety of choices as to the capabilities of your machine. We have dedicated mountain bikes built to tackle the rough and scale the slopes. Bikes for the morning commute and to glide around town. Then there are hybrids which can take you off road and back to the tar with ease without switching bikes.
The Flash has quality and versatility in its DNA, and certainly looks the part as a futuristically handsome and sporty player in this relatively new and exciting mode of travel.
The Flash makes no apologies for its quintessentially ‘electric bike’ appearance and its build has been geared primarily for the city dweller, but will easily hold its own in other more demanding environments.
Powerful at heart
The Flash boasts a mid-drive system, which is a relatively new player on the electric bike scene. It means this machine has a centrally located motor, unlike some of our other electric bike models that carry their motors in the front or rear hub.
There are distinct advantages to each type of bike. In very simple terms, a front hub motor will tend to ‘pull’ the bike, creating an all-wheel-drive system. This is a big advantage when riding in snow or sand. A rear hub motor will ‘push’ the bike, offering a wide range of power level options and making for a smooth, road-gripping ride.
The Flash, being a mid-drive system has its motor situated at the cranks of the bike, allowing the rider a low and centred weight distribution and ease of handling. A mid-drive system is well known for being able to power efficiently up those longer, steeper slopes by leveraging the lower gears of the bike. This can be a godsend for those who frequently have to tackle those pesky steep hills on the way to work.
Like a conventional geared bike, you’ll have the opportunity to operate the bike’s shift, and thereby adjust the transmission to fit the road slope, the load you are carrying and the speed you want. So while the Flash looks more high tech, it operates similarly to a regular bike, but with the added advantage of a powerful Motor 8-Fun 250 watt central motor.
Because the motor is centred, the Flash is also easy to lift and carry for storage or transport on a roof rack.
Coming through with flying colours
The Flash model comes in three stunningly handsome colours. The Blazing Red oozes cockiness and confidence and is a great choice for those who like to attract attention.
Also available, the Lipstick Chic is the perfect shade of pink, guaranteed to provide the ideal accessory for when fashion is an important part of your life at all times.
And for those who just love to make a statement, the Flash also comes in Sunset Ember, a bold shade of orange that radiates energy, spontaneity and a sense of fun.
All Flash bikes have front suspension and very sporty-looking ventilated disc brakes.
The 36 volt Lithium-ion internal battery will give you 12 amp hours and removable charging in 5-6 hours from depletion.
The Flash is a super-efficient, city style electric bike which offers you ease of operation, great handling and hours of electric assisted biking fun.
Size & Fit
A. Measured from the seat at its highest and lowest positions, to the floor, as shown in the “A” diagram.
B. Size is measured from the centre of the crank (axle) to the seat at its highest and lowest positions, as shown in the “B” diagram.
|A. Seat-to-Floor||89 cms (35 in.)||100 cms (39 in.)|
|B. Seat-to-Crank||60 cms (24 in.)||73 cms (29 in.)|
|Inseam between…||68 cms (27 in.)||83 cms (33 in.)|
|Your height between…||147 cms (4′ 10”)||179 cms (5′ 10”)|
Notice: We have a “Fit-Right” guarantee, if the bike does not fit well, you can send it back for a full refund.
The recommendation is based on the Greg LeMonde formula. It is most accurate if you know your actual inseam height. As an alternative, an approximation is used based on height.
To measure your inseam, do the following:
- Hold a thick book between your legs, place it high exerting some pressure as you would feel when sitting on the bike.
- Stand straight with your back against a wall.
- Keep your feet at shoulder width
- Ask a friend to measure from the book spine to the floor or mark on the wall and then measure.
- This is your inseam measure.
