A “Sport Utility Vehicle / SUV” is defined as “a large vehicle that is designed to be used on rough surfaces but that is often used on city roads or highways”. The Carbon ebike is perhaps the most advanced concept of e-bike available today. It could be interpreted as a hybrid bicycle/motorcycle: a lightweight device which releases large amounts of power. Still a true bicycle that you can enjoy in every sense of the word, it offers you much more in terms of usability, performance and freedom: the SUV ebike®.
The Carbon SUV ebike is a superior e-bike in terms of performance, comfort, technology, and brand image. Help me to reach my goal contributing to the style of everyday transportation by riding.
