We’re officially launching the DryCycle, an Electric Assist Pedal Cycle (E-bike).Of course ours is an E-bike with a difference! Being fully enclosed protects you from rain and road muck and our strong aluminium roll cage also protects you from road accidents as our crash testing shows.
Riders get in and out of the DryCycle by raising and lowering its hinged polycarbonate canopy,while an ABS body protects them from the elements that’s further reinforced by a welded aluminum frame, complete with crumple zones.
The DryCycle is powered by a 250-watt Shimano Steps E8000 motor. The cycle has a top electric-assist speed of 25 km/h, and can reportedly travel up to 48 km on one four-hour charge of its dual 500-Wh Shimano batteries.
The DryCycle weighs 120 kg which is also its maximum rider/cargo payload. Brakes: Hydraulic twin calliper self balancing disc brakes with parking levers and electronic sensors (which activate the brake lights when either/both of the brakes are used). Left brake lever operates both rear brakes and right brake lever operates both front brakes.
