By | B-52, H-52, New Products | No Comments
Ride 28% further on your new Stealth B-52

Riding a Stealth Electric Bike is an experience like no other, Stealth’s mission is to keep you riding for as long as possible.

Our next generation batteries released earlier this year will get you up to 28% further than before, with improved performance that equates to a possible 100 km on a single charge. The extra range could open up whole new areas to explore which were previously inaccessible.

We’ve tweaked the chemistry and increased the size slightly, while the weight difference is negligible, the improved range is substantial. A few lucky customers have already had their B-52’s fitted with our new batteries and their feedback has confirmed our alchemy has been well worth the effort.

Best of all the 28% range increase comes at no additional cost as all Stealth bikes are now fitted with next gen batteries as standard. There has never been a better time to design and buy your own Stealth Electric Bike.

If you want to know what riding a Stealth feels like, contact your nearest dealer to arrange a test ride.

Battery upgrades are available for older B-52’s please contact your nearest dealer for information.

Stealth: getting Thanksgiving cranking

By | Promotions | No Comments

In celebration of the Thanksgiving holiday, Stealth Electric Bikes will be giving away a crankset to three US pilots who send in the best photo of their Stealth bike in action.

 

The offer will run from the Thanksgiving holiday until the end of November, giving Stealth owners time to craft the perfect shot. Photos will be voted on by the Stealth factory staff, who will be looking for images that best showcase the hard-core potential of the bikes they create.

 

The promotion, appropriately named “Cranksgiving”, is to give thanks to Stealth’s growing US battalion who willingly support the company’s expanding dealer network.

 

“Our friends in the USA are big fans of progressive technology, so they have really embraced the Stealth range and frequently send us encouraging feedback,” says Stealth’s managing director John Karambalis.

 

To account for the ongoing take-up in the US market, the team at Stealth’s Australian headquarters is working even more closely with its US dealer network, looking to support them in any way possible.

 

“Our US dealer group is progressively growing to support the demand and it’s something we’re really excited about, for we know The States has a huge range of riding terrain that is seemingly tailor-made for our bikes,” says Stealth’s global sales manager Theresa Mischkulnig.

 

The prize cranksets are identical to those found on the B-52 Bomber and F-37 Fighter models, and will make a worthy addition to a die-hard Stealth pilot’s spare parts arsenal… or a neat addition to their trophy cabinet.

 

More importantly, Cranksgiving is just another incentive for pilots to charge up their Stealth and to spend their holiday on the trails.

 

With that, the whole Stealth team wishes their US supporters a very happy Cranksgiving, and looks forward to seeing their handcrafted bikes in action.

 

Entrants can submit their images to [email protected].  

Jack Field set to wow the crowd at Moto Expo

By | E-Bike Events, H-52 | No Comments

Renowned motorbike trials rider Jack Field will climb aboard his Stealth H-52 Hurricane for a series of eye-opening demos at this weekend’s Troy Bayliss Moto Expo at the Melbourne Showgrounds.

Field, who has a long association with Stealth Electric Bikes, will be showcasing his world-class skills from the 28th to the 30th of November, spearheading the three-day long event, which is the largest of its kind in Victoria.

 

The event will cover a 30,000sqm area, including an indoor hall that will house over 100 exhibitors; one of which will be Stealth Electric Bikes, where the latest B-52 Bomber, H-52 Hurricane and F-37 Fighter models will be on display.

 

Spectators will be able to see Field working his H-52 Hurricane to its full potential on a purpose-built demo course, similar to those seen in the many promotional videos starring the talented rider aboard his 5200 Watt “Black Ace” rocket.

 

Stealth’s Global Sales Manager Theresa Mischkulnig says that Field is such a great ambassador for the Stealth brand because he genuinely showcases the versatility of the Stealth bikes.

“We have countless videos of high-end Stealth riders carving up off-road trails because they’re the natural habitat for our bikes, but Jack proves that riders needn’t just restrict their use to the trails alone – you can take a Stealth bike pretty much anywhere and have a load of fun in the process.”

 

Field’s H-52 Hurricane has no special modifications and uses an off-the-shelf specification, demonstrating the durability of the model straight off the factory floor.

 

For riders wanting to mimic Field’s antics, says Mischkulnig, Stealth offers the semi-slick Schwalbe Crazy Bob tyre package; a soft-compound option, which uses a knurled tread pattern with a particularly rounded profile to offer extreme amounts of grip on asphalt services.

 

“The Crazy Bob is a no-cost option, which is specified by around 10% of Stealth’s customers globally; some riders even request both sets of tyres, as they wish to enjoy their Stealth across a number of different trail and tarmac environments,” adds Mischkulnig.

 

For motorbike and Stealth fans alike, tickets to Moto Expo can be purchased online or at the gate on the day of the event. Motorcycle parking is free, with cars costing just $10 for the day.

 

Stealth Electric Bikes encourages riders to experience the future in hybrid electric bike technology, with the Stealth B-52 Bomber, F-37 Fighter, and H-52 Hurricane available for test ride via our global distribution partners. Contact us today to find your nearest dealer.

Electric motorsport legends charge into Christchurch

By | E-Bike Events | No Comments

Christchurch is gearing up for a knockout shock as three living legends of electric motorsport prepare to descend on the city on Saturday, November 29.

High-velocity stalwarts Eva Håkansson, Bill Dube and Kevin Clemens will have their record-breaking electric vehicles on display at the Chapman Castle event in Tai Tapu, which kicks off at 3pm.

 

Needing little introduction, Håkansson’s electric motorcycle “Killajoule” is currently the fastest of its kind in the world, having topped out at 434km/h, and it will be joined on display by Dube’s “Killacycle”, which holds its own record for the fastest accelerating electric motorcycle.

 

Minnesota-based Clemens rounds out the record-making trio, holding some 11 world, US national and US east coast land speed records set on electric motorcycles engineered in his own workshop.

 

Stealth Electric Bikes will be joining these and other big names alongside the B-52 Bomber and F-37 Fighter on show at their stand, which will be located in the “Plug-In” display zone.

 

Renowned FMX rider Luke Smith will be leading the parade and spectators will have a good chance of seeing him show off his B-52 Bomber on the ramps.

 

For the many aspiring Stealth pilots in New Zealand, the event will be a great opportunity to inspect the Stealth bikes up close, as well as discuss upcoming test ride opportunities.

 

Obvious advocates of electric-powered transport, Stealth Electric Bikes encourages its New Zealand fans to attend the event and listen to the inspirational stories of the guest speakers.

 

With Killajoule proven to reach a maximum speed more than five times faster than Stealth’s own rocketship, the B-52 Bomber, Håkansson is sure to have some memorable tales to tell.

 

The event is a fundraiser promoted by EVolicity, an initiative of the Associ­ation for the Promotion of Electric Vehicles (APEV), which aims to further the EV cause in New Zealand. Any profits from the Chapman Castle event will go toward the enhancement of EVolocity’s 2015 promotional programme.

 

Tickets for the event are $150 (NZ) per person and can be purchased online from EVolocity.

Too much is NEVER enough

By | B-52, E-Bike Technology, F-37, H-52 | No Comments

When the Big Names are seen riding a Stealth with the biggest custom specs, Stealth Electric Bikes’ customers begin to get excited. The company’s latest YouTube hit, featuring Stealth test pilot Jarryd McNeil shaking down a tricked-up B-52 Bomber, has led to an influx of upgrade requests.      

 

Leading the charge toward maximum performance is the premium Mountain Racing Products (MRP) Groove 200 fork upgrade. Originally engineered by US-based suspension guru, White Brothers, the Groove 200’s upside-down design links back to its founding company’s motocross engineering roots, and ties in nicely with Stealth’s overarching moto vibe.

 

But for the Groove 200, it’s not all about the aesthetic appeal. With an extra inch of wheel travel over Stealth’s standard RST R-One forks, as well as high-end Norglide bushings and handcrafted internals, the Groove delivers benchmark plushness and lasting reliability. At the same time, the inverted design reduces unsprung weight, enhancing small-bump responsiveness.

 

MRP Groove

Due to the nature of the inverted design, front-end stiffness is also increased when the Groove is specified, as the length of the large diameter outer tubes is far longer than traditional dual-crown forks. The tighter front-end, combined with the additional support provided by the Groove’s advanced high and low-speed valving, means greatly improved rider control, and more opportunity to exploit your Stealth’s full potential.

 

“All of our customers who have upgraded to the Groove forks praise the quality of the ride they deliver. We’ve been working closely with both White Brothers and MRP for a long time, and can confidently say that the latest valving tweaks to the Groove are truly top-notch,” said Stealth’s managing director John Karambalis.

 

The enhanced front-end control is equally matched at the rear, with revised valving available for the DNM rear shock on the new B-52 Bomber and H-52 Hurricane designed to improve high-speed responsiveness. At the same time, the progressively wound spring on these models has also been enhanced, offering better small-bump compliance.

 

Of course, the greater speed also puts your braking system under more intense pressure, and this is why Stealth also offers Magura’s range-topping MT-8 braking package as an additional option. Given greater braking pressures introduce more heat and potential expansion to the hydraulic fluid, the MT-8 offers on-the-fly adjustment of the brake pads’ bite point, giving riders more control, even under intense downhill riding conditions. And, just to add to the overall package, the MT-8’s brake levers are also carbon fibre, reducing weight and further boosting your Stealth’s aesthetics.

 

“We don’t just offer our upgrades for the sake of it,” said Stealth’s sales manager, Theresa Moolenschot. “We carefully select every option in our upgrades list, ensuring that each one delivers significant benefits over its standard equivalent. Our bikes are ready for anything straight out of the box, but our upgrades really turn things up to 11.”

 

For riders who really want to stand out, though, Stealth can also provide many custom colour options outside of those in the standard list. This is done by special order and is a service designed to illustrate the boutique nature of the Stealth company, which is akin to that of Ferrari or Pagani in the motoring world, wherein one-off specials are still produced to this day.

 

Stealth Wooden Veneer Finish

“Despite the growth in our bikes’ popularity, we’re eager to maintain our boutique vibe, and customisation is central to this. The fact that so many of our orders request special features is also a testament to how valuable this service is to our customers,” adds Karambalis.

 

Some examples of the custom colour schemes are available on the Stealth Instagram page, where everything from special rim colours, right through to a wooden veneer finish, are on show, highlighting what happens when Stealth customers really want to crank things up.

 

Every option and upgrade listed in The Stealth Hangar website is available for each of the Stealth models: B-52 Bomber; F-37 Fighter; and H-52 Hurricane. Existing Stealth customers looking to further enhance their machine can also request upgrades. To take advantage of the service, or to enquire about a brand new custom Stealth of your own, the factory is just one email away.

STEALTH: A View From Behind Bars

By | B-52, E-Bike Technology | No Comments

A new Stealth customer takes us on a factual journey through B-52 Bomber ownership, and in doing so, highlights just why our e-bikes are leaving the competition in their wake.

 

It was in February of 2014 that Australian customer, Ricc Storti, placed an order for his Stealth B-52 Bomber. An experienced electric bike pilot who had in the past produced a custom hybrid e-bike of his own, Ricc was looking to take the next step in quality and adjustability: he was a seeking a more advanced battery management system (BMS) than he could develop with his own hands, a more robust and durable battery, and more scope to tweak power outputs based on his mood, which, for the record, ranged from “quiet commuter” to “full-throttle assault”.

 

Now, Ricc is also someone who is not afraid of calculations; he understands range and power outputs, is inspired and intrigued by technology, and accordingly, was willing to spend the time computing just which e-bike would best meet his requirements. Ricc was able to calculate that his B-52 Bomber could take him some 160km when set at 250 Watts and relying on pure electric power, and that at 1600 Watts, it would already be accelerating so quickly that his legs would be physically incapable of keeping up. And, in reality, Ricc was right… At maximum power, he claims to be frightened of the performance (in a good way, of course!).

 

What makes the B-52 particularly appealing, says Ricc, is that inside the 250 to 1500 Watt range, it offers the perfect fusion of pedal-power and electrical assistance, finely balancing his desire for a cardiovascular workout with a New World edge. Beyond 1500 Watts, he says, the B-52 becomes a motor bike with a difference, crossing into the realm of “the immensely powerful – almost too powerful”, where the thrills are unparalleled.

 

For most riders, says Ricc, “1500 Watts is as much as they might practically want”, yet the notion that the B-52 kicks out some three-and-a-half times this, is one that Ricc still welcomes, purely for the “fun of having an immensely powerful beast between [his] legs”.

 

And, beyond the accelerative thrills, Ricc was keen to touch on the advantages of his B-52’s regenerative braking technology, noting that the system is “absolutely marvellous, not just because of the energy capture, but also as a great braking device”. Stealth’s re-gen system is designed to integrate fluidly into the riding experience, enhancing battery range, whilst offering a seamless engine-braking effect, which reduces riders’ “arm pump”, especially on steeper and more demanding trails.

 

It is the technological advantages like these, borne out of Stealth’s ongoing investment in worldwide R&D, that are the hallmark of each and every one of its bikes. And, in support of these efforts, Ricc goes even further, advocating the variable power outputs, managed by Stealth’s proprietary BMS, which works in conjunction with the DC-1 Stealth Management System. The DC-1 is a multilingual display, offering twin trip meters, a range estimator, system diagnostics, ride efficiency calculator, average speed, and more. It even calculates the total recovery yielded by the aforementioned re-gen braking system. Perfect for riders like Ricc who are passionate about the technology, but also attuned to its technical advantages.

 

“We’re proud that our customers – like Ricc and many more – are genuinely using and benefiting from the features we build into our bikes,” says Stealth’s managing director, John Karambalis.

 

“It’s all well and good to build high-end products that last and deliver the thrills our customers expect, but we also strive to lead the technological charge in the electric bike world, and our DC-1 and the associated regenerative braking system, are critical parts of this aspiration. All the feedback we receive on these (and our bikes overall) is exactly what allows us to further enhance them. This is just one of the reasons we always look to build a relationship with our customers. No matter how many bikes we sell and distributors we sign up, we’ll always retain our boutique feel.”

 

And this is just how the Stealth experience goes further than the bike, adds Ricc himself (who, by the way, also wanted to point out that people stop him in the street to photograph his bike), for “the customer and technical service and support from Stealth Electric Bikes is”, in his own words, “superb and super-fantastic”.

 

In signing off his letter to Stealth, Ricc had one last line of praise for his B-52 – something that he shares with every Stealth rider worldwide – and that is the sheer aesthetic appeal of his bike. In his own words, “it looks like it comes from the Bat Cave”.

 

Good thing it has the technology to match.

 

Riccardo Storti is a genuine Stealth Electric Bikes customer, and one that wrote to the company on his own accord – Ricc’s original letter is published below. Stealth is proud to say that all the quotes and statistics published above are Ricc’s own words, and that this article was written with Ricc’s permission. Stealth openly encourages customers to book their own test ride and find out just what Ricc is talking about.

The Original Letter from Riccardo Storti

G’day Everyone,

 

I ordered my Stealth Bomber on 20-02-2014 and received it about 6 weeks later (I think, can’t remember exactly). The reason I purchased the Bomber was because I wanted a dirt bike experience, but hated the noise generated by the petrol models. The tinny, twangy sound of a petrol dirt bike bothers me, so the Bomber was instantly appealing. Moreover, I wanted to be as green as possible, but not compromise on the dirt bike experience I was seeking. In addition, I’m a keen cyclist and cardiovascular fitness is extremely important to me, so the Bomber seemed to fit all my requirements. They’re not cheap, but I was willing to take a chance and I’m very glad that I did.

 

I’ve undergone somewhat of a physical transformation in my life and it was quite a journey; this is an important story (in my opinion), so please bear with me and keep reading. At the time of writing this, I am 46 years of age, I weigh 75kg, am 175cm tall and wear 30” trousers around my waist. However, six years ago, I was 124kg and wore 42” trousers. I managed to lose 56kg, down to 68kg, then up to 75kg because at 68kg I was carrying about 5% body fat and would nearly faint; at 75kg, I’m about 7% body fat, so, why is this important? …. Good question, I’m glad you asked … The answer is because I learned the need for cardiovascular exercise during my transformation process …. No, I didn’t lose this weight from the Bomber, I lost it by power walking one to two hours every day, carrying a 25kg backpack stuffed with books and dinner plates. However, this practice gave me a sore back and my doctor suggested to take up cycling instead.

 

So, that’s what I did; I started cycling as a method to manage and maintain my weight-loss. However, like almost everyone, I have to work and I needed a cycling activity that fit into my lifestyle. I also wanted a way to kill two birds with one stone, that is, commute to work and get my daily exercise simultaneously. Consequently, I purchased an e-bike conversion kit and commuted to work. After chewing through two e-bike conversion kits (the batteries will tend to last about 12-18 months, no more), and having dealt with an endless stream of electrical problems induced by my own poor electrical wiring skills, I decided to purchase a professionally built e-bike and avoid electrical problems. So, I bought an OptiBike R1100 and a Stealth Bomber. Why both? …. Again, great question and I’m glad you asked. I have 6 bikes all up and each one gives me a different riding experience: a bike is not [“just”] a bike, they’re all different and provide different kinds of fun. I have four regular bikes and two e-bikes – each one is very different from the next. The OptiBike is a push-bike for a cyclist, the Bomber is a push-bike for the dirt biker.

 

Here, I’m going to talk about the Bomber specifically. Firstly, I need to make some statements about e-bikes in general. It has been my experience that they are widely misunderstood as being a form of “cheating” or “easy riding”. This is absolutely ridiculous, so much so that it isn’t even wrong, it’s just childish and reflects a complete lack of understanding of fundamental physics. As I mentioned above, I take weight-loss and weight management very seriously, and I have recorded thousands of measurements (literally) regarding my energy expenditure during power walking and cycling. Here’s what I’ve found:

 

  1. A person on a regular bike works longer, NOT harder.
  2. Cycling is twice as energetically intensive as power walking (over a fixed duration).
  3. The human body outputs a constant amount of energy (an average) per hour of cycling exercise; for me, it’s about 520 (Cal / hr).
  4. Each person has their own comfortable state of cycling exercise; for me it’s a heart rate of about 130-135 beats per minute (BPM) and a cadence of about 70-75 revolutions per minute (RPM).
  5. The “comfortable state of cycling exercise” above is governed by the gearing ratios on the bike being ridden. The point here being that our bodies find what is comfortable and sustainable, and for me, the BPM + RPM yields 520 (Cal / hr).
  6. The energy expended by the rider is overlaid upon the capability of the bike. By this I mean that on my regular mountain bike with knobby tyres, my output of 520 (Cal / hr) yields an average velocity of 20 (km / hr). On my Bomber, I still output 520 (Cal / hr), but I’m traveling at 50 (km / hr) when I restrain the Bomber to 1100(W). In other words, the energy a rider expends does not change per unit time, what changes is the energy expended per unit distance. Therefore, on my regular mountain bike, I will burn approximately 800 (Cal) over 30 (km); on the Bomber, I’ll expend about 520 (Cal) over the same distance … But, I will make this trip in 1 (hr) on the Bomber, and 1.5 (hrs) on my regular Mountain Bike with knobby tyres. For me, 1.5 (hrs) each way commuting to work is too long, 1 (hr) is about the same time it would take me to drive; so 1 (hr) is just about perfect for my lifestyle.
  7. At 250(W), I burn about 650 (Cal) each way to work on the Bomber. This means that I burn about 1300 (Cal / day) commuting round-trip to work; not a bad bit of exercise and I get to eat like 3 horses because of it. I eat what I want, when I want and in the quantities I want. The average male needs approximately 1500-1700 (Cal / day) just to survive in a comatose state (according to the literature I have read and the measurements of energy expended during sleeping that I have made), so my body needs about 3000 (Cal / day) just to maintain my body weight …. To anybody that loves food as much as I do, this is heaven.
  8. I can carry 20-30kg of groceries on my back, and I’m not slowed down in any way. I tend to do my grocery shopping during lunchtime at work and can cart everything back home with the Bomber if I wish to.

 

So what does all the above mean about the Bomber? Oh, God, I love your questions, well done kids:

 

  1. From power settings of 100(W) to 1500(W) for me, the Bomber is a very effective cardiovascular workout tool; just like any regular bike.
  2. From 1600(W) to 5000(W) (that’s what the adjustable controller tells me via the user interface), the Bomber ceases to be a push-bike and becomes a Dirt bike ….. Why? …. My God you ask a lot of questions; the answer being that the bike goes faster than I am able to pedal. The 9 speed clockwork sequential gearbox spans the 100(W) to 1500(W) range very well, but because the bike is so immensely powerful, it takes a faster pair of feet than mine to be able to contribute mechanical energy to the work being done by the motor.
  3. When I want to burn energy to manage my weight, I dial-up 1500(W) or less. When I want to have more of a motorbike / dirt bike experience, I tend to run it at 2000(W). When I have urges for maximum acceleration, I run it at 5000(W).

 

Here’s the approximate range performance you can expect from the Bomber with a full charge (this is a rough guide, subject to many variables):

 

  1. 250(W) = approx. 160 (km)
  2. 1500(W) = approx. 54 (km)
  3. 5000(W) = approx. 27 (km)

 

Important notes:

 

  1. The recharge time is about 3 (hrs) from bone-dry.
  2. A Duro RazorBack will only last about 1500(km) if you ride predominantly on paved surfaces.
  3. If you want to use the Bomber as a commute vehicle on paved surfaces, get the Crazy-Bob tyres.
  4. I am now running a Crazy-Bob on the rear and a Duro RazorBack on the front. A Duro RazorBack on the front gives me front end grip and is long lasting; the rear is a different story.
  5. Personally, I’m not that thrilled with the MT2’s, but that’s just a personal feel preference; I now wish I had of purchased the MT4’s (I may do the upgrade at some point, but I’m still thinking about it).
  6. The regenerative braking is absolutely marvellous; not just because of the energy capture, but also as a great braking device. You’ll be amazed at how quickly it will slow you down, gently, [which is] especially good for the wet in my opinion.

 

Further observations:

 

  1. The customer and technical service support from Stealth Electric Bikes (SEB) is superb, super-fantastic, you can’t go wrong.
  2. The bike is immensely powerful, almost too powerful. I’ve never had the courage so far to run it at top speed. However, the variable power output is the perfect solution. I’m guessing that for the majority of riders, 1500(W) is as far as they might practically want. Nevertheless, if you want to run higher power levels, you can.

 

Things I would like to see SEB provide to the market:

 

  1. A charger for the car (if practical). Sometimes I like to take the bike bush with my father (he goes fishing, I ride); a car charger would be good for me (assuming it’s practical to do so).
  2. Bluetooth connectivity to my iPod Touch. It would be great to be able to feed all the data that the on-board computer logs to a spreadsheet.
  3. An external Battery Management System (BMS) reset switch (waterproofed) … Why? …. Because if you deplete the battery to 0-1(%) remaining charge, the BMS may kill the power in order to protect the battery. This is not a problem, just an inconvenience because the owner is then required to remove a side panel and physically disconnect then reconnect the battery cable in order to reset the BMS.

 

Conclusion: as I’m sure you can see from everything that I have written above (which took me a couple of hours to compile), I would recommend purchasing the Stealth Bomber for seven keys reasons:

 

    1. The company service and support is amazing.
    2. As a long distance daily commute vehicle.
    3. As a weight-loss / weight-management tool.
    4. It is quiet, very, very quiet: basically, you only hear the tyre noise, that’s it, nothing else.
    5. Styling: it looks like it comes from the Bat Cave.
    6. It is a head turner, no doubt, no doubt at all: I [even] get people stopping to photograph it.
    7. For the fun of having an immensely powerful beast between your legs.

 

Cheers …. Ricc

 

Stealth Puts Trails Under Lights

By | B-52, F-37, H-52, Promotions | No Comments

Stealth Electric Bikes has launched a new, ultra-bright lighting kit as a direct-mount option for each of its three e-bike models, and is offering the kits for free with every new bike order this month.

 

The 1720-lumen twin-beam package clamps straight onto the handlebars, meaning riders can now carve trails night and day, regardless of the conditions.

 

“Night riding is a whole new experience, but something a lot of Stealth riders don’t even consider – given the speed our bikes can reach, pilots really need to see where they’re going. Our new lighting kit changes all of this, as our bikes can now take on the trails 24-hours a day,” said Stealth’s sales manager Theresa Moolenschot.

 

Supporting the kit’s huge lighting output is a 20-hour runtime, and a beam that reaches up to 270 metres into the distance, meaning riders will be well-prepared for whatever lies ahead.

 

The lighting kit release coincides with a hive of other activity in the Stealth Electric Bikes factory, including a full model refresh, which has seen the newly-named B-52 Bomber and H-52 Hurricane’s respective power outputs cranked up to 5200 Watts. At the same time, the F-37 Fighter has adopted a fresh moniker, backed up by a power boost to 3700 Watts.

 

“We’ve really cemented our reputation as a world-class e-bike manufacturer now, and we receive some really encouraging feedback from our riders, so now it’s a case of further refining what we do, and making the Stealth experience even better than it is already,” said Stealth’s managing director John Karambalis.

 

Alongside the significant product developments is the new Stealth Hangar, the company’s revitalised website platform, which contains all the latest bike specs, colour options and dealer information, as well as a full run-down on the new lighting kit.

 

And there is more to come, too, adds Moolenschot in closing, while encouraging Stealth fans to follow the company on its many social media channels, where she says much of the latest Stealth news is broken first.

The 2015 Stealth Hangar Opens its Doors

By | B-52, F-37, H-52 | No Comments

Stealth Electric Bikes has opened the doors on its new Digital Hangar, an interactive website designed to provide users a unique showcase of its widely-acclaimed range.

 

With a military vibe dominating the theme of the Hangar, Stealth aims to illustrate the precision of its handcrafted bikes, whilst also echoing the silent and purposeful nature of its products, named after the fabled covert-combat aircraft.

 

“Our new site is the result of more than a year of feedback from our global client base, all of whom wanted more images and more information on our bikes, and this is just the beginning, as we have loads more updates planned for the coming months,” said Stealth’s sales manager Theresa Moolenschot.

 

Opening the doors to the Hangar reveals a face-lifted model range, headlined by significant power increases across the entire range, with maximum outputs heading north to 5200 Watts (5.2 kW) for both the newly-named B-52 Bomber and H-52 Hurricane.

 

At the same time, the equally-updated F-37 Fighter receives a performance boost to 3700 Watts (3.7kW), taking its corner entry speeds to the next level, whilst retaining its benchmark manoeuvrability.

 

Coinciding with the launch, Stealth pilot Jarryd McNeill took the new B-52 for a casual shakedown, heralding the new performance as “pretty mind-blowing”, with all the action caught right here on film.

 

With Stealth’s new models elevating the e-bike performance standard even higher, the Digital Hangar has also made it easier to request a test ride and learn just why the range is so highly regarded.

 

“We receive an unprecedented amount of questions about our bikes, but most of these are best answered by simply taking one for a spin. Our new site ensures test ride requests are quick and easy, even when you’re browsing on a mobile phone, which we know most of our social media subscribers are,” said Moolenschot.

 

Aspiring pilots can also locate and contact their nearest Stealth dealer via the updated dealer directory page, which contains information on the worldwide dealer network, alongside links to their dedicated websites.
