We developed the Discovery for those who like to ride in style but with little effort – you might be in a suit, or going to a meeting. It is designed so you can arrive cool, calm and collected, even in your smartest clothes. We made it a comfortable ride by choosing subtle innovations such as a quieter motor and a suspension seat. You can easily set the handlebars to suit your riding position by using the quick-release handlebar adjuster. As a result, the ride of the Discovery is comparable to driving a Rolls Royce – well, we tried to make it the Rolls-Royce of bicycling.

We designed this model to be clean and simple. We removed all the greasy parts one might associate with an eBike. For example, the gears are stored inside the rear wheel hub, which requires less maintenance, and the chain is fully covered. This means you can be sure that you will arrive at your destination as clean as your eBike.

We made sure the Discovery is ready for every day use. So… we used a large rear rack and positioned the battery to make it easy to add side panniers, baby-seats, carrier straps, lights and the other accessories.

Battery

Only recently have our batteries become affordable to use in our eBikes due to advances in technology. We use Lithium Ion Co, Ni, Mn, which resists the ‘memory effect’ better and lasts longer than lithium ion batteries based on magnesium. We also have a 30-day ageing process during the production (this is longer than most), which means our batteries have a longer life cycle.

The cells inside the battery are from Samsung and are also used by the automotive industry for larger electric vehicles. We’ve tried and tested many different variations and we believe that our formula is the best. James who rode the Discovery over 2000 miles across Europe agrees.

Design

I spent a long time tweaking the Discovery so that it looks uncluttered and works perfectly. My main aim was to make it clean and simple so that it is easy to use and a joy to ride when you need to look your best. The finished result has a relaxed riding position that is very adjustable to suit your comfort and style. 

A very stiff unisex low-step frame means there is no torsion as you ride: no energy is wasted. The ride on the Discovery is smooth and very comfortable, I’m very proud of it. If you get a chance, I encourage you to try out similar eBikes and compare the quality of the ride and ease of use. 

When I say that I want the ride to be hassle-free, I mean it. I don’t want you to have to stop midway through your journey to put the chain back on. The chain guards will not only do their best to prevent that but also keep your trousers clean and shoes shiny. Bonus – it blends in with the rest of the style of the Discovery.

I aimed to achieve minimalistic design: all the parts are matching and there are no odd bits. The matt surface allows you to be the only shiny part and the minimalism means that your style is the most important when you’re on the Discovery. 

Best wishes,
