E-GreenMachine / Recumbent with electric assist

EUROBIKE AWARD

EUROBIKE AWARD

The GreenMachine from FLEVOBIKE Technology has a completely enclosed drive chain so chain wear is no longer an issue. Since August 2012 there is an option to attach an electric assistance unit. The motor is placed in a low centre of gravity position and drives the Rohloff Speedhub gears. The energy source is a LiFePo4 battery which can be recharged 2000 times. The assistance is given directly into the Speedhub and the close proximity between energy source and gears means it is very efficient in terms of energy usage. The weight of the unit (motor + battery) is only 6 KG - the lights of the bike remain separate.

As a fan of recumbent bikes, I simply have to acknowledge this pure and clean technical design.
