The first in bicycle maker Ono’s collection of outrageously stylish e-bikes is the wild-looking Archont. The design is a three meter long easy rider, conceived with the sole purpose of providing an exhilarating experience and unparalleled riding pleasure! It’s a chopper-style super e-bike! Just as quick as it looks, it features face-lifting acceleration thanks to a 7kW motor powered by a 72V 20Ah lithium ferro-phosphate or 74V 23Ah lithium-ion unit. First and foremost though, the sleek design was developed to turn heads with its unconventional lean body, curved lines and carefully worked proportions.
In terms of its electric drive, Archont electro comes with a 7 kW motor (more and less powerful units are available), a 4 speed plus reverse manual “gearbox”, and Schlumpf transmission, which allows pedal action even when hurtling for the top speed of 50 mph (80 km/h). Mostly though, should you ever afford it, you’ll want to drive it on right-handlebar throttle that will unleash jaw dropping acceleration. Features such as cruise control (tempomat) and a speed limit are also included. Archont electro is powered by a 72V 20Ah lithium ferro-phosphate or 74V 23Ah lithium-ion unit, stored inside a locked carbon fiber casing (metal and polyester are also an option). Ono Bikes Company estimates that the battery can provide range of up to 60 miles (100 km) without pedaling. The battery charges in about three hours when plugged in, and a regenerative braking system adds some charging while in motion.
