In stock - test ride model availableThe Velocity Steps EP6 is our latest addition to the electric assist Orbit range.
Built using a lightweight aluminium frame, the tandem uses the Shimano Steps EP6 250W motor and a 504wh battery.
Battery weighs 2.9kg, and takes 4 hours for a full charge, however, it is 80% charged after the initial 2 1/2 hours.
Range of course depends upon rider weight, wind, tyre selection & altitude gain, but it can be as much as 70 miles per charge.
The 250W motor is the highest output system that is road legal in the UK, giving up to 85Nm of torque. The EP6 is a new motor Shimano produce and has plenty of torque which makes it very suitable for tandem use.
This type of electric assist is called a mid-drive system, the engine runs through the gears, and correct use of the gears when climbing make the system really efficient, and allows a light weight motor to be used whilst still giving out a great amount of torque, which is needed for pedalling up the hills.
Built in North Yorkshire, and finished with top quality components from Shimano the Steps EP6 is designed for couples who want a high performance electric assist tandem.
Shimano Cues gearing, again another fabulous new range from Shimano, with the cassettes being designed for longevity and G6000 wheels give this tandem a really superb feel.
Wheels size 700c.
