ENVO says the Stax is an eBike that’s simply making an attempt to be a standard bicycle.
You learn that accurately.
“ENVO Stax is designed to supply riders with a pure and acquainted driving expertise akin to that of a standard bicycle,” the corporate mentioned 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 looking for eBikes, in line with the corporate. Maybe that is to tell apart the Stax from bikes which can be geared in direction of older riders with aggressively dropped high tubes for simple 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 laborious 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 bought 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 is able to work for a lot of riders, however not all.
The Stax additionally seems to be to compete on value — it prices “solely” $1,879 MSRP.
If that feels like rather a lot to pay for a motorcycle that’s purportedly simply making an attempt to be a motorcycle — however is, for some purpose, as a substitute an eBike — I’m proper there with you. Heaven is aware of most of us millennials don’t have huge 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).
“A very powerful factor for us when designing this ebike was to be sure that it rides and seems like a standard bike so the consumer doesn’t must compromise on experience really feel for the added advantages of an ebike,” ENVO CEO Ali Kazemkhani reiterated. It’s “geared toward millennials and Gen Z riders who need a handsome, smooth, electrical bike that’s premium but reasonably priced.”
