Orbit Velocity Steps E8000 electric assist
Thursday 16 November 2017, Filed in: General
Our Orbit electric assist tandems tandems are flying out. I have the frames in stock and motors on order, but they are proving so popular that by the time the motors arrive they are all pre-sold.
So don't wait until our website shows free stock available come and test ride now and if you'd like one, even if it's not wanted until next spring, then get your order in and we'll reserve you one. Built using a lightweight aluminium frame, the tandem uses the Shimano Steps E8000 250W motor and a 504 Wh battery.
Battery weighs 2.6kg, and takes 4 hours for a full charge, however, it is 80% charged after the initial 2 hours.
The 250W motor is the highest output system that is road legal in the UK, giving up to 70Nm of torque. The E8000 is the top end system Shimano produce and has the greatest amount of torque of all of their systems which makes it very suitable for tandem use.
Our test ride model is in the smaller of the two sizes
Stock sizes are 21"/17" & 19"/15".
To book a test ride or to place an order give the shop a call
