There’s nothing shadowy about the Shadow and the paint job doesn’t help either. Despite such a strange handle, this ebike from Daymak has the rare distinction of being 100% wireless. Why is this such a big deal?
Though ebikes have already carved a sizable niche in the bicycle market, the Shadow stands apart from the herd thanks to its wireless engineering. Look at the picture above—no wires right? The problem with ebikes is their electric motors required lengths of wire that often got caught in the gears and chain. This spelled bad news to the riders who suffered a loss of mobility.
Daymak have grabbed the bull by the horns and produced the wireless wonder called the Shadow. Thanks to a lithium ion battery and a 350W electric motor it can reach up to 40 km/h when pedaled hard. The coolest feature isn’t the wireless design or the batteries though. The front wheel can be used to charge your gadgets via USB. How cool is that? Additionally, the electric motor, battery and braking system are all stored in the front wheel.
The Shadow is available for order from Daymak here, months ahead of its official April 30 release date. Be warned though, one of these babies will set you back $1,900. Ouch!
