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.

Engineering has to approve the basic proportions of an e-bike, and those basic proportions determine 60% of the design but an essential part of a successful styling process is to create a reaction from consumers ... and, hopefully, a compelling vision of the future direction of e-bikes development. Top e-bikes like Carbon are more than just simple transportation. They strangle attention. A combination of weapon-grade speed, sex, beauty and freedom found between two tires. Carbon is the icon of that.
Carbon SUV ebike is a durable choice for off-road riding in the country near home and in such remote regions as the open spaces of the Australian outback, Africa, the Middle East, Alaska, Canada, Iceland, South America, Russia; as well as in regions with limited paved roads, such as parts of Asia, that require vehicles capable of handling all kinds of terrains. The superb riding capabilities of Carbon SUV ebike provide a major safety advantage to people in areas with gravel roads in summer and snow and ice in winter, desert zones, dirty, rough roads outside cities, and in any extreme conditions such as riding through high water.
The Carbon SUV ebike features a carbon frame and an aluminium fork, leading-edge components and is designed around the latest bicycle technology. It will be manufactured in Asia and we can guarantee a world-class production cost-to-quality ratio.
Manufacturing carbon e-bikes at top quality standards is significantly more difficult than manufacturing conventional e-bikes. There are only a handful of manufacturers that have the skill set and experience to do it properly. And I know them very well.
The unique Carbon SUV ebike is quite different from the other e-bikes, even carbon e-bikes. Carbon SUV ebike needs closest attention to details to be manufactured to perfection. This is why I am overseeing the process in person, every single day: this is my full time job, my commitment and my passion.
We will ship from Asia to anywhere around the world. All Carbon eBikes will come pre-tuned and ready to ride. However, we ask that you take it to your local bicycle shop for final, personalized tuning prior to your first ride.
All units will be carefully packed for shipping. All orders will include online parcel tracking and insurance. Additional duties/taxes may apply depending on your destination country.
The impressively powerful carbon-fiber frame, with its mighty tubes, is engineered at a supplier where carbon-made products of other major brands are also produced.
Perfect for every-day regular riding as well as fun riding, off-road trips and Uphill or Hill Climbing. Carbon SUV ebike, the Electric Bike with its powerful motor, climbs hills effortlessly and maintains great speed all the way to the top!
In 2014, the former Formula One team Caterham explored the possibility to include the Carbon SUV ebike project in a new two-wheeled family of its products. Unfortunately, the agreement was not eventually signed due to financial viability of the initiative at that time, though the product innovative concept, its design and technology were widely appreciated by Caterham funs. The official review on YouTube with over 3 million of visualizations has currently thousands of visits every day.
