The mountain bike goes electric! The Hanebrink All Terrain Electric Bicycle goes from deserts to snow to pavement to dirt to hills- anywhere. This is a serious and fun bicycle- look at those fat tires. The bike has an integrated lithium-ion battery to give you one hour of assisted pedaling from a 3 hour charge. Let’s see the action video:
The Hanebrink has a 600 watt brushless electric motor driving a 14 speed gear configuration that can be used to tow up to 300 pounds if you need to. On straightaways you can hit 40mph and it gives good torque for assistance climbing grades. Those 20″ diameter by 8″ wide tubeless monococque tires give stability and traction on dirt, sand or snow. The triple clamp fork has 8″ of shock absorption in it’s suspension and it has hydraulic disc brakes on both wheels for quick stopping power. The frame is made of aircraft grade aluminum while the seat post and handlebars are of carbon fiber. All Fortune Hanebrinks are designed by former NASA aerospace engineer and six time Mountain Biking champion Dan Hanebrink and built by hand. They are a bit pricey at $9700 from Hammacher but as a possible all-terrain car alternative it would work well.
