Hand Crafted Design

Optibike is all about building custom electric bicycles that are unique to the customer. We design nearly all of our parts in-house with years of experience in ebike design.

Each bike is carefully assembled and tested in our shop by hand, and we make sure it works perfectly before sending it off for the customer to enjoy!

Patented Motorized Bottom Bracket (MBB)

You control your experience with the Optibike Motorized Bottom Bracket™ that was designed from the ground up by Optibike to satisfy the needs of American riders. The wide open spaces in America demand a bike with the power for long range touring, and the capability to climb the steepest hills. The MBB has the highest power to volume ratio of any system in the world, allowing for full suspension and true bike handling.

  • Outstanding hill climbing capability
  • Will not overheat on the steepest climbs
  • Highest power to volume ratio in the industry
  • Patented Derivative Power Control™ (DPC)
  • Combines high acceleration with high efficiency for long ride times
  • Intuitive “Natural Bicycle” feel is best in the industry

Lithium Ion Batteries

Optibike pioneered the use of Lithium Ion batteries in electric bikes and is now many generations into refining the design of our batteries. Optibike batteries are built to more rigorous standards than other electric bicycles. This is why they last so long.

The Optibike also has the largest battery capacity of any electric bike, 2-3x most other bikes, which means more ride time and unmatched long range touring for you. The result of cutting edge research and development, each cell block in the pack is individually controlled and monitored at all times to ensure maximum health.

  • State of the art pack configurations and cell chemistry
  • Packs lasts a minimum of 30,000 miles
  • Guaranteed for up to 3 years on some models
  • 100 mile plus range on larger sized batteries

Frame: Where Performance is Art

The beautiful frame on the Elite Series is crafted from Carbon Fiber. Each frame is hand built and prepped for use. One look at the frame and it speaks for itself. It is aggressive, strong, and one of the main reasons that the Optibike can take on anything in an urban environment. Designed to have a low center of gravity, the Optibike is highly maneuverable and responsive.

  • Frame designed from the ground up by Optibike
  • Carbon Fiber is rigid and lightweight, while being extremely strong
  • Low center of gravity for better maneuverability and responsiveness
  • Low position of battery acts like a “keel” in boat, keeping bike more stable
  • All electronics safely secured in frame for protection from the elements
  • Frame houses the high capacity battery
  • Motocross style rear suspension linkage gives a huge 220mm of travel

“Down 81 pounds! I haven’t been this weight since the end of college back in 1979! Lean, mean, fighting machine! Ok, not too lean, but real mean… and a fighting machine as you can see by this picture. The help of coach Traci Brown in the Optibike Weight Loss Program was key to my success.”

– Bob Brewer

Wheels and Brakes: Robust and Responsive

The Optibike uses high-strength rims, and hydraulic disk brakes to provide unparalleled stopping power.

  • Hydraulic brakes are more precise, easier to modulate and require less effort
  • Up to 203 mm rotors for increased stopping power
  • High performance brake pads
  • Strong rims for the extra weight and power of an ebike

Suspension Fork: From an American Legend

Optibike uses the world’s best off road bicycle suspension forks built by the American company FOX Racing Shox. Fox has been a leader in suspension off road technology since the 1970’s.

  • Kashima coating for reduced friction
  • Through front axle for high rigidity
  • Magnesium lowers for reduced weight
