Great fun and maximum comfort

E-bikes rule the world nowadays. We have also succumbed to their temptation. We perceive e-bikes basically as a means for promoting cycling, be it for leisure or to economize on time when commuting in cities. E-bikes don’t just add to the ways you can enjoy your leisure time, they can also bring new qualities to your working days. And that’s amazing about them. 

The concept of “all-embracing comfort”

If you find traditional cycling uncomfortable and perhaps slow as well, an e-bike can certainly help. Anyway, without trying a recumbent e-bike you’ll never find out how incredibly comfortable cycling can get. You get seated in a cozy seat and an electric drive will help you overcome any climbing. Thus you can get further, faster and with less effort. In our view, an e-tricycle stands for the concept of “all-embracing comfort” bringing even more ease for your body and muscles.

Great fun on- and off-road. Silently and with no driving licence needed

Are you a fan of speed? Do you enjoy quad bike or jet ski? Still looking for new dimensions and possibilities of such pastimes? There’s a great new challenge for you – an e-trike! Such machines like our Ti-FLY X or e-FAT will make you an eager rider after the very first pedal stroke. These trikes climb any hill with unprecedented ease. You can reach places restricted for cars or motorbikes on them. And they can be loaded into your car quickly and easily.

Get to work faster

Leave your car at home and set off for your work on a bike. An e-bike will make the commuting time shorter, you can avoid annoying traffic jams, do some good for your health, and be cool moreover. Especially on our e-bikes that all have very genuine and modern aesthetic looks. No need to worry about your load. We have a lot of experience with hauling gear and provisions. We have undergone many long-distance trips on our bikes and we use them for commuting as well.

BROSE motors from Germany for recumbent bikes & trikes
BROSE motor on recumbent trikes and bikes


BROSE is characterized above all by its very quiet operation, which was achieved thanks to the use of a belt for the final transmission inside the motor itself. The Smag has a torque of 90 Nm. What you will recognize at first glance is the larger and colorful 3.5″ display, which you will find in a familiar place for us right in your field of vision behind the engine between the cranks. BROSE motor requires significantly less force to engage, and this will be especially appreciated by physically weaker cyclists or people with disabilities. During start-ups, it is therefore not necessary to lean so much on the pedals for the engine to start helping, which is especially important when starting uphill.

Power: 250 W
Torque: 90 Nm
Battery capacity: 630 Wh as standard
Range: up 150 km / 94 miles (630 Wh)
Chain wheel 20”: 44 teeth
Chain wheel 26”: 38 teeth

Motors can be combined with following components:

Shimano Cues Di2 groupset

Shimano Cues Di2

Electronic shifting combined with a classic derailleur and cassette, which also offers automatic shifting with AUTO SHIFT and FREE SHIFT functions. From now on, you don’t have to worry at all about whether you need to shift to a lighter or heavier gear, because the intelligent electronics do it for you. The cassette has 11 to 43 teeth and thus offers a range of 390%, plus LINKGLIDE technology which ensures longest possible chain and cassette lifespan, which is up to 3.9 times longer than other cassettes.

Shimano Nexus Inter 5E (only for Shimano motors)

A gearbox integrated in the rear hub, offering a 263 % range, specially designed for electric bikes to prevent problems with the massive combined torque coming from the rider’s feet and the motor. Thanks to the electronic shifting, you can change gears manually or enjoy the convenience of intelligent automatic shifting, savour the ride in itself and the beauty around you, not worrying about anything else. Another huge advantage is the option to change gears even when stationary, which applies to all the other integrated gearboxes anyway, such as Nexus, Rohloff and Pinion.

Enviolo 380 (formerly known as NuVinci)

A continuously variable (stepless) rear hub transmission, originally designed for industrial electric motors, so its use for electric bikes is, unsurprisingly, possibly the best choice. NuVinci will allow you to change gears even when shifting under power, that is when to motor is putting the power in and you will never have the feeling that it is under stress. Compared to the automatic Nexus Inter E5, the range of gears this option offers is larger by 1/3, that makes it 380 % that will allow you to get up even steeper hills under heavier loads.   

Rohloff – 14 speed gear hub

in comparison with other shifting systems for electric bikes, the Rohloff offers you a massive gear range of 526 %. With this, you will able to get up any hill under any load. No steep part will pose a problem when moving off even if you have, for example, your huge canine friend behind you in a trailer. The Rohloff is simply the ultimate choice for extreme cyclists favouring electric bikes.  


Shimano Sora 1×9, or Shimano Deore 1×10 

Traditional shifters using a derailleur and a 11 to 34, or 11 to 36 tooth cassettes, they are the basic economical option we have on offer.
