Award-winning 100+ mile range.
Optibike offers the largest (and lightest chemistry) battery offered in an Electric Bicycle.
If you want to run errands all over town, or venture out for a 100 mile ride, an Optibike R8 e-bike is the way to go, perfectly capable of long range touring. With the highest-capacity battery available in an electric bike, you can ride with absolute confidence. The 4th Generation 29Ah 36V Lithium battery weighs less than 12 lbs and is warranted for 3 years/30,000 miles. If the standard battery is not enough, you can add an optional Touring Battery to double the range to 100 miles on a single charge!
The Optibike electric bike carries enough energy to travel 100 miles on a charge, and we have proven it. Way back at the 2006 Tour De Sol Electric Vehicle race held in upstate New York, Craig Weakley rode an Optibike 104 miles in less than 4 hours over a course of rolling hills with minimal pedaling.
