Berlin inventor, Stefan Gulas, has created a electric bicycle. Unlike typical electric bikes that are merely battery powered; Gulas’s design requires the rider to keep pedaling, and amplifies the rider’s effort by a factor of 50. The E-Rockit can hit speeds of up to 50mph!
The Nano-Phosphate Lithium batteries have a range of 60-80 km and an expected life of about 10 years. The first production run of 10 bikes will be this year and have a price tag of about $40,000 USD each.
