First produced by Dr Alex Moulton CBE in the ‘60’s, the basic Moulton® concept is to improve ride comfort and efficiency by using small wheels with high-pressure tyres, supported from a rigid frame by carefully engineered rubber suspension units.
At ARCC we offer the Moulton® TSR complete electric bike in a range of configurations so you can find the perfect bike for you. We can also retrofit our e²-pod Intelligent Drive System to your existing Moulton® TSR.
The e²-pod Intelligent Drive System 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.
The Moulton® bicycle equipped with the e²-pod is ideal for commuting or on-road riding. The bike delivers a well-tuned, responsive ride, making it one of the very few successful alternatives to the standard non-electric space frame bicycle.
We offer a 5-year frame warranty on all new Moulton® TSR bikes as well as a 5-year warranty on the ARCC Intelligent Drive System.
Moulton® TSR with e²-pod available from £3294
Retrofit available for £1799
