Simon Cowell recently made worldwide headlines when he misjudged the performance potential of his e-bike, crashed and underwent surgery for a broken back. Think that’s turned him off the bike? No way! He’s quick to advise e-bike riders to “read the manual.” Delivering a staggering 15kW of electric power, the Swind EB-01 has an official top speed of 60 mph. The space-age bike features a unique air-cooling cell and drive train that sits inside the aluminum and carbon-fiber frame, alongside a regenerative braking system and thumb-shift gears. The high-capacity lithium-ion battery fully charges in just 90 minutes and boasts up to 80 miles per charge, with the ability to use as a pedal bike when desired or needed. All this power is available in three modes: Low, High and Boost, with different levels of traction and range to suit a wide variety of activities, including off-road. The hyper-bike’s wide range 9-speed sequential gearbox delivers smooth, instantaneous shifting no matter what the conditions, whether you are pedaling or powered. Cycling will never be the same; Swind.Life.
