Freddie is your freedom machine.
Available Summer 2017.
Powerful electric motor - Green doesn't equal slow
Freddie has a high performance hub motor which can produce up to 3kW of power, reaching a top speed of 45mph. This is 12 times more powerful than the 0.25kW motor typically installed in a traditional e-bike. You'll be the nippiest thing around town.
Long lasting lithium ion battery
The battery is built from the highest quality lithium ion cells which will give you 40 to 60 miles of range on a single charge. This type of battery cell is currently used in the Tesla Model S. Having a high quality battery means that it be longer lasting and able to provide the big bursts of energy needed to accelerate.
Removable battery - charge anywhere
To recharge, you simply remove the battery from under the seat and plug it in at any 3 pin wall outlet. It weighs less than 8kg, so it's easy to carry up to your flat or office. Once plugged in, you'll be fully charged in under 2 hours and ready to ride another 40-60 miles.
No more fuel or oil changes
Freddie is as simple to maintain as your bicycle. Because the motor is inside the rear wheel hub, there is no chain to maintain. You'll need to check your breaks and tyres regularly, but aside from that there's nothing else to worry about. And lets not forget how much money you'll save on fuel. The battery costs less than 25 pence to fully charge, giving you over 40 miles range.
Fitted with high spec X tyres. You can take Freddie everywhere.
The onboard system shows you battery levels, range and charge.
Freddie is built to last. The rugged frame is hand fabricated from high strength steel.
