What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About this project

The Stealth P-7 is designed to turn your daily commute into an unforgettable adventure. That dead travel time getting to work can now be part of your daily fitness routine and give you more time to do the things you enjoy.                                                                                                      

The new magic carpet
The new magic carpet

Forget about sitting on the train, tram, bus or even red lights. From hills to highways, the P-7 is the new magic carpet.

Weekend warriors won't miss out either.  Available in an "off road only" power configuration, the P-7's dual suspension frame is also capable of mixing it on the trails. Built from the same pedigree as the proven Stealth B-52, F-37 and H-52, the P-7 offers you the chance to become a Stealth pilot without breaking the bank.  

Where can you ride it?  

Legal in over 30 countries, the P-7 can go anywhere that a regular bicycle can go (unless otherwise specified). While capable on XC trails, the core of its design is aimed at commuters. Ride it like a demon and wave to the authorities as you pass them by. You're 100% street legal so you're breaking no laws.  

Starting from a blank sheet, the P-7's design minimises the number of moving parts and maximises reliability. Using Stealth’s signature Chromoly monocoque chassis design, Stealth naturally backs up its reputation with a 3-year frame and swingarm warranty (upgradeable to a lifetime warranty), with 12 months warranty for all other components.

Weighing in at just 29kg, this ebike is by far the lightest Stealth ever built making it easy for just about any rider to lift and maneuver, whatever the situation. Transporting the P-7 to your favourite riding areas is also made easy as it's light enough to load onto a regular bike rack.  

For those who like to spend more time in the saddle, the P-7's upgraded 1.5kWh battery and onboard DC-1 computer will help you get up to 150km of range as a pedelec, making sure you get to where you're going and back again. If the battery does run flat, the freewheeling brushless DC hub motor combined with the 7-speed gear train can easily be pedalled home, ready for a recharge.

Derived from the popular Stealth F-37, the adjustable front and rear suspension have a wide range of settings so that they can be finely tuned to suit your individual riding style or terrain.

The small but powerful, planetary geared BLDC hub motor has tractor like torque making it great for steep climbs and fast take offs.

Straight from the factory, the P-7 comes standard with super sticky 27.5" x 2.4" Schwalbe Super Moto-X's and 4 piston Magura MT5 brakes clamping down on huge 203mm rotors. The same braking system used on the bigger and heavier Stealth B-52.

With just 1 finger on the brake levers, riders can lay it down low through corners and stop on a dime, making the P-7's street handling nothing short of phenomenal. This really is the fastest and most fun way for speed demons to legally get to work.

Is it cheating?  

Yes, it's cheating. We're going to give you an advantage that you never had before and you feel anything but guilty doing it.  

Not everyone has the baseline fitness required to get on a bike and ride 50-150km a day. With the Stealth P-7, riders can work hard when they want to, and cruise when they need to. You no longer need to be a finely tuned athlete to cover serious miles. Those who need to ease their way back into a regular exercise regime will have the opportunity to get their heart rate up without running out of steam half way through the trip. We just gave you one less excuse to take the car to work.

What aren't we doing?    

We're not setting out to make the world's cheapest ebike. There are plenty of other campaigns if that's what you need. We are not outsourcing this product to an overseas manufacturer, and the bikes will be designed and manufactured from our Australian facility in Melbourne.

In-house manufacturing
In-house manufacturing

Our mission is to make the most versatile yet durable ebike on the market which is safe, compliant and still a head turner. 

What's the deal?

This Kickstarter campaign will be the pre-production run of the Stealth P-7.

Australian customers will take delivery of the P-7 in street legal trim with the legal limits set 250W, 25km/h.  Customers in the USA however will receive their P-7's set to the legal limit of 750W and 28mph, taking advantage of the recently announced S-Pedelec category.

Available in a choice of four colours, we are offering the P-7 with either 100km range, or the option to upgrade to 150km range. 

For a limited number, we'll be offering the Stealth P-7 for as little as $4000 USD to those who get in early.

This is a once off offer and it will never be repeated so if this sounds like the bike you need, now is the time to place your order.    

Check out the Stealth Electric Bikes website for more details: www.stealthelectricbikes.com                                                                                                                                                                                              At the end of the campaign, production will begin and follow the time line as below.                        

Thanks for your support and we welcome questions from near or abroad about this amazimg bike.

Risks and challenges

This isn't the first ebike we've ever built. Our extensive knowledge of ebikes gained from 9 years of manufacturing and global sales combined with our logistical knowhow means that we've been there and done it already.

There is the possibility of supply chain supply delays, but we're able to mitigate this risk by leaning on our backup suppliers who can provide us with components of the same type or same spec in order to fulfill our orders.

Quality control is a risk with any type of device that has wheels and electronics. By manufacturing and assembling the bikes at our facility in Melbourne, Australia, we are able to keep track of processes and procedures and ensure that we deliver a quality product each and every time.
