The Blade Shows it's True Color
Each Blade frame started as pieces of aluminum, which got turned into tubes, molded into shape, cut to exactly the right spec, tac welded together, adjusted, rewelded, smooth welded and heat treated, calibrated, heat treated again, readjusted and finally came to this stage. In the process each Blade frame picks up it's own patina, unlike any other bike in existence. Traditionally this is chemically cleaned, sanded down and painted over, but for us the beauty is in the process.

The Blade rounds third base...
Production is rounding third base on the Blade. We've spent the last few weeks perfecting the final details to make sure these bikes kick ass. Check out what's been going on below:
Can you ride an electric bike in the rain?

The drive system on electric bikes typically consist of a motor, controller, battery and display. Each of these components could be susceptible to water damage if not properly built or sealed. Most ebike and electric motor drive systems are built with this in mind, so the rain that serious road warriors run into won't spoil your ride.

Light rain is fine for most ebikes, but what about the heavy stuff?

Here we need to look at IP ratings. The Bafang Max motor, controller and display used on the Roadster, Trail and Attack bikes are all IP65, that means they're completely dust-proof and heavily water resistant.
