ARCC Brompton Electric
Brompton’s history can be traced back to South Kensington, London, 1975 when engineer and creator Andrew Ritchie was inspired to design a better folding bike. Fast forward over 40 years later and each bike is still finely built.
Brompton’s core values and design haven’t really changed in the last five decades either. The idea is that small 16-inch wheels (with metal spokes, because they’re rebuildable) are lighter; a steel or steel and titanium frame is tougher than carbon; and finally, even though the bike folds into thirds, the long toptube emulates the stability you experience on a full-size bike. The Brompton electric will have all those features with a modernised, evolutionary and unique touch of technology.
ARCC Brompton Electric:
At ARCC Bikes we take your Brompton one step further with our ARCC e²-pod Intelligent Drive System. The e²-pod Intelligent Drive System is all you need to upgrade to a well-tuned e-bike.
The e²-pod has been designed by ARCC to provide unique intelligent bike power. It combines variable power levels with automatic hill/gradient compensation which allows commuting cyclists to choose the amount of effort both they and the motor provides; automatically compensates for hills and gradients; and provides ‘launch control’, for safety when moving away from lights and crossings in heavy traffic.
The e²-pod uses an industry standard 4.0 Ah, 6.0 Ah or 9.0 Ah Bosch battery, which are readily available from stores and online and have a range of up to 75km dependant on the battery used. When the battery is removed, the e-bike reverts to its standard configuration and can be used as a regular bike.
