Over 100 Miles on a Charge

If you want to run errands all over town, or venture out for a 100 mile or more ride, an Optibike R15C E-Bike is the way to go, perfectly capable of long range riding and going over 100 miles on a single charge. With the highest-capacity lithium ion batteries available in an electric bike at 1500Wh, you can ride with absolute confidence. The high energy 52V 29Ah lithium-ion battery weighs less than 17 lbs and is warranted for 2 years.

At 20 mph the R15C can do 126 miles on a single charge! That’s over 6 hours of continuous riding with some moderate pedaling. Even with the motor only you can still get nearly 80 miles on a charge.

Wind Resistance

Looking at the chart below it’s also easy to see how much wind resistance has an effect on efficiency and range, at higher speeds much more energy is wasted. And you can also see that pedaling has less effect at higher speeds, because the electric motor drive system is adding much more power to reach that speed.

Great Choice for Touring

For long range bicycle touring Optibike is a great choice, you can ride very long distances, and also climb steep grades easily even with a trailer and extra weight behind you. The R15C and R8C also have easily removable batteries, so carrying a spare in your trailer is easily done!

The Optibike electric bike carries enough energy to travel long distances on a single 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, and we’ve only improved since then!
