Orbit Velocity Steps E8000 electric assist
Thursday 16 November 2017, Filed in: General
Our new Orbit electric assist tandem in stock. Although we do only have 1 motor left, once that's gone it'll be August before they are available again.
Built using a lightweight aluminium frame, the tandem uses the Shimano Steps E8000 250W motor and a 504 Wh battery.
Battery weighs 2.6kg, and takes 4 hours for a full charge, however, it is 80% charged after the initial 2 hours.
The 250W motor is the highest output system that is road legal in the UK, giving up to 70Nm of torque. The E8000 is the top end system Shimano produce and has the greatest amount of torque of all of their systems which makes it very suitable for tandem use.
Our test ride model is in the medium size 20/16"
Stock sizes are 21"/17" & 19"/15".
To book a test ride or to place an order give the shop a call
