|The EVOL Dual Suspension EBike / Motorcycle Frame|
The Dual Suspension E-Bike Frame
This dedicated dual suspension e-bike frame makes a suberb basis for a high power e-bike. There is a very large battery enclosure, dual suspension, with wide rear dropout (~155mm) with integrated torque arms built to accept high power e-bike parts and be stable at very high speeds and challenging off road terrain.
It combines a very strong overall structure, with high strength pinching dropouts to support even ultra high power hub motors. It offers the comfort and stability of long-travel dual suspension and a large enclosure to house a very large battery. It is perfect with one of our high powered conversion kits such as the CRYSTALYTE Hub, ENDURO Hub, and KINETIC8-FUN Mid Drive.
- versatility in the selection of bicycle components;
- maximum space for the accommodation of batteries;
- safety and cool looks
