ENVO says the Stax is an eBike that’s simply attempting to be a standard bicycle.
You learn that accurately.
“ENVO Stax is designed to offer riders with a pure and acquainted using expertise akin to that of a standard bicycle,” the corporate stated in a press launch.
One way or the other, it’s additionally geared towards “millennials,” a demographic that simply desires to experience regular bikes however, for some purpose, is in search of eBikes, in response to the corporate. Maybe that is to differentiate the Stax from bikes which can be geared in the direction of older riders with aggressively dropped high tubes for straightforward on & off.
From that strategic morass, the ENVO Stax arrives, a unit that comes with a 500W hub motor. ENVO factors out that’s “twice the output” of an Olympic rider. Admittedly, it will be exhausting to do a lot with the Stax until it did roll below its personal energy. The “light-weight” eBike weighs 42 lbs.
Elsewhere, you’ve acquired a 36V/12.8AH battery, 8-speed Shimano Altus gearing, 700c x 40mm Kenda tires, and Shimano disc brakes. Like many e-bike startups we’ve seen, the Stax solely is available in one body dimension which can work for a lot of riders, however not all.
The Stax additionally seems to compete on worth — it prices “solely” $1,879 MSRP.
If that feels like lots to pay for a motorcycle that’s purportedly simply attempting to be a motorcycle — however is, for some purpose, as an alternative an eBike — I’m proper there with you. Heaven is aware of most of us millennials don’t have large piles of money laying round, ready to be spent. To be honest, the bike does have built-in lighting and a show that may be related to your smartphone (one other Millenial/Gen Z staple).
“Crucial factor for us when designing this ebike was to ensure that it rides and seems like a standard bike so the person doesn’t must compromise on experience really feel for the added advantages of an ebike,” ENVO CEO Ali Kazemkhani reiterated. It’s “aimed toward millennials and Gen Z riders who desire a handsome, smooth, electrical bike that’s premium but reasonably priced.”
