Cyclotricity Stealth 500w Dual Power Electric Bike
Looking for a road legal e-bike but with an occasional boost of power?
If you are looking for more power than the average electric bike but worried about the legalities of such a choice, the Stealth 500W is one of rare options to consider. The unique dual power system integrated into this e-bike allows the user to swap between two modes depending on whether you are on-road or off-road, enabling you to unloc k the full power where it is safe and legal to do so.
The UK/EU regulations dictate that an e-bike must not exceed the rated power of 250W to be road-legal. Which is not great news for the thrill-seekers, power hungry among us who want to have the occasional fun off-road yet still be able to ride sensibly and legally on-road. A purchase of the common high powered electric bike will come with its legal implications. On the other hand, the practicality of a road-legal e-bike means giving up the extra power/speed one could enjoy off-road. So which do you choose?
The following options are available with this bike:
Warranty - The standard is a 12 month warranty. An additional warranty, making 2 years in total, is available at an additional cost.
Battery Size - The battery determines the number of miles per charge. There are different battery options available with this bike, with the range of each battery being listed in the specification section.
Lights - The bike is supplied without lights as standard but we can add these on for you
Pannier Rack - The bike is supplied without a pannier rack. We can fit one for you if required
Mudguards - The bike is supplied without mudguards. We can fit front and rear mudguards for you if required
Hydraulic Brakes - As standard the bike has cable disc brakes. Whilst the standard brakes do the job, one of the most requested upgrades for this bike are hydraulic brakes. These hydraulic brakes really do make a huge difference to the feel of the braking. Please note that when hydraulic brakes are fitted the auto shutoff brake function will not be active.
Throttle - As standard the bike is supplied without a throttle. We can add a throttle onto the bike but please be aware that the bike is not then road legal and should not be ridden on the public highway, even when in 250w mode
Freewheel Gear - The standard 7 speed freewheel gear does the job but can be rather noisy. We offer an upgrade to fit a higher quality Shimano 7 speed freewheel gear
Gear Shifters - The standard 7 speed gear shifters are satisfactory. However, we do offer an upgrade to 7 speed rapid fire trigger shifter.
