Pioneer Carbon SL
The Pioneer Carbon SL has been discontinued
Optibikes Ultra Lightweight Electric Bike
- 36.5 Lbs weight with the battery
- Easy to carry up stairs or inside
- Carbon fiber frame
- Optibike Mid-drive for excellent hill climbing
- Very quiet motor, hard to tell it’s even electric!
Built for those that don’t want a heavier ebike and prefer a lightweight option.
The Carbon SL is made from Carbon Fiber and uses road tires to keep the weight down, it also has a rigid fork and swingarm to further reduce the weight of the bike.
At 36 lbs it is very easy to pick up and carry with you inside or up stairs!
More power gives you a higher top speed, and lets you climb hills faster.
A bigger battery means you can ride farther, it's like the fuel tank on a car.
More torque lets you start from a dead stop easier, and lets you climb very steep hills.
Some basics on battery capacity and what it means for range.
A battery with more capacity generally means you can go farther on a charge.
However at maximum speed, a more powerful bike will also use more battery capacity per mile traveled.
Knobbier tires can also reduce range due to more rolling resistance on the road, and the terrain you ride on can also heavily affect the range you get.
A Note on E-Bike Range:
At Optibike our ranges are based on actual usage and testing, as well as feedback from our customers.
There is no standard for E-Bike range like there is from the EPA for Car Mileage, as a result an electric bicycle manufacturer can claim whatever they like for their range and top speed. At Optibike we try to present estimated ranges and speeds that are as close as possible to what you’ll actually get.
