Brompton Electric Foldable Bike

Foldable, electric bikes are the hot thing right now. Introducing an electric bike from Brompton gives you an excellent example of why they are so popular on the streets. Its ride position and agility are more than a match for conventional bicycles. Small wheels mean fast acceleration from red lights and increased maneuverability through busy streets.

The reason, why now we are giving you a possibility to purchase it – the British company Brompton launches its first electric bike in the US this week. There is unique aesthetic in the company’s miniature folding bicycles and the interesting part is – the battery of this electric bike fits inside a small shoulder bag that clicks conspicuously onto the front of the bike (not inside the tubing or on the frame, as usually).

The Brompton name is synonymous with folding bikes and these bicycles manufactured in London today remain true to the same iconic design established in the 70s. These small bikes can be taken onto public transportation for free and then stored under your desk at the office. 

The 1.5-liter Essential bag at the front of the bike houses 300Wh removable battery, good for between 30 to 70 km (about 19 to 43 miles) depending on how and where you ride. The bag has a small outer pocket for the bike’s charger, keys, and a phone which can be charged by snaking a cable back to a USB port on the battery. The battery cannot be plugged into the bike without the bag.

* It’s great for short to medium distances.
* The motor is covered by a two-year warranty and the battery for two years or 500 charges.
* The bike is suitable for riders ranging from 140 cm to 203 cm (4 feet 6 inches to 6 feet 8 inches).

Nua Electrica E-Bike

The Nua Electrica is a fast and technologically advanced commuter bike. The philosophy behind it is to express ourselves using cutting-edge technology to create the “Nua of the future”. That means you’re getting an incredibly light, perfectly integrated and totally silent complete electrical bike.

It can be pedaled like a normal bike as it weighs less than 13 kg depending on your configuration, and that’s less than most of the non-electric bikes in the market. The beauty of this extremely simple concept lies in pairing a Zehus motor battery combo and a maintenance-free Gates belt drive. For a feeling of total freedom while cruising the city at light speed, the Zehus does not require a handlebar display computer – unless you wish to connect your smartphone for ultimate control – and has a wide range of autonomy (30 km in Turbo fully assisted mode or an infinite range using the exclusive self-charging mode that will set you free from electric plugs).

Are you ready for pure and effortless two-wheeled joy?

The secret to the clean lines and decidedly “normal bike” look of the hand-built Nua Electrica is the Zehus BIKE + system – a lightweight (6 lb.) and compact e-bicycle motor-and-battery combo that replaces a standard rear hub. It’s a 250w unit paired with a 160wh self-charging battery pack that delivers 90km of range on assist & up to 30 km on full power assist at the max speed of 15MPH. With its premium titanium frame, silent belt drive, and Ti parts from fork, stem, bars, post & beyond, the Electrica brings a fresh aesthetic to e-bike design.

Why Nua Bikes?
Nua offers custom made-to-order bicycles as the basis for your very unique and personal build. When you have configured your bike, we will design it for you in Barcelona. For those who prefer to build their own bike with their own hands, we also offer frames and framesets and advice on assembly.  You can also check out Nua’s limited editions Nua Concept Series.
