Our "Shadow" Chimera is an all-black steel build made with a highly durable 4130 heat-treated chromoly frameset, powerful 3800 watt High-Drive powertrain, CT series Magura brakes, ASI BAC855 controller, and Sun/Ringle rims. See "specs" tab below for more details. 

Our bikes now offer two setups; a 36v 15ah "Commuter" battery capable of up to 40 miles of throttling range at street legal speeds, or a 52v "Competitor" battery capable of up to 20 miles of throttling range and very high "off-road only" speeds. Check our battery specs below for more precise information. If you choose to purchase both batteries, you can easily swap them out, and use our mobile app to adapt the bike's settings. 

Our bikes are pre-order only, assembled in small batches right here in Los Angeles. Please understand that when you make a pre-order, your bike will be put into production, and will take up to 7 months to deliver to you (depending on our order volume). Once your bike is in production, it can only be cancelled for a refund minus a $300 fee to help partially recover our costs of raw materials and labor. For more information, see our refund and warranty polices. For legal reasons, we have to say that the top speed is 15mph.
