Kinetic bikes offer exhilarating, comfortable and reassuring rides.
The family operated factory designs and manufactures in particular its own outstanding motors, controllers and consoles. Kinetic bikes come 'fully loaded' (fenders, rear rack, chain guard, integrated front and rear lights) with a higher level of bicycle components than typically found in electric bikes.
The bikes are continuously test ridden by the head of the factory himself over thousands of rugged miles in Europe, Africa and Asia and have won many electric bike races.
These meticulously evolved bikes are built and distributed with overriding emphasis on reliability, durability and product support.

Proprietary drive system with a high torque 500 W front motor, ‘dual mode’ power control, i.e. throttle + pedal activation seamlessly and intuitively working together, monitoring and power setting handle bar display, and the quality bicycle components rarely found in electric bikes on the U.S. market.
The quick release, lockable state of the art Li-Ion battery of 10 or 14 Ah is placed in the ideal center of gravity position, i.e. just behind the seat tube.
Comes abundantly ‘fully loaded’ with front disc and rear Shimano BR IM80 brakes, Shimano Nexus 8-speed internal rear hub, Schwalbe 26″ (Big Apple 2.0 on the step-thru and Marathon+ MTB on slope frame model) puncture resistant tires, front fork + seat post suspension, rear rack & full fenders, integrated front & rear strong lights, full chain guard, center kick stand and ‘euro’ style integrated lock.
Available in two frame versions: The ‘step-thru’ frame (a.k.a. women’s) model fits riders from about 5’3″ and the ‘slope’ (a.k.a. men’s) model fits riders from about 5’6″.' The slope version is also available as the FORZA with an upgraded front suspension fork and rear motor placement.

No other electric bike may have so indefatigably gone the distance and as cheerfully chewed up as many varying roads. The Torq has decisively proven itself in races, rallies and on ultra long treks.
The Torq's accomplishments include three consecutive wins in the Tour de Presteigne (the world's premier electric bike race) in Wales and winning the Jurassic Race in Switzerland.
Successfully completed treks by Torq riders include 1,900 miles across Africa, down along the entire length of the Mississippi river, Melbourne to Sydney, London to Paris and 3,400 miles of the fabled China Silk Road.
Of course the Torq and its cousin the Sprint are doing superbly well also for those of us whose adventures involve just riding to the store, commuting or Sunday rides.
The Torq comes in two slope frame models, which fit riders from about 5'7":

Our customers overwhelmingly find zipping around on their Quando as nimble, comfortable and thoroughly enjoyable after years of ownership as during the test ride. Reviewers have since 2006 equally heaped praise on this compact folding ebike. It is durable beyond belief, folds crisply and comes fully loaded.
For some of us the complicated control modules of some brands have become rather awkward to operate and read. Pushing the 'wrong' button while riding may create a power supply surprise.
The Kinetic module differs. It is quite intuitive and easy to read: The 'up' and 'down' buttons on the right allows you to set the power level, which will be indicated in the bottom row of lights.
And by the way, if you are rider who relishes power, press 5 power lights, hold on and enjoy a 'pavement wrinkling' performance.
The top row of lights lets you know the state of charge of your battery.

Available from the following brick & mortar dealers.
A Kinetic bike ships well packed in an oversized carton and arrives ready to ride (after installing the pedals and turning the handle bar). If you are skilled working on bicycles and want to handle we'll consider shipping directly to you.
Otherwise, as having a bike gone over after shipping assures your safety, we'd recommend letting us ship c/o your local bike shop. Tuning and adjusting your bike as well maximizes durability and rider enjoyment. Mail us a copy of the shop's receipt and we'll mail you a $50 check toward what the shop may charge you.
