Risks and challenges

This project has been in pre-production, testing, and market research phases for the last 15 months. The X1 team is prepared for all tasks and by developing our nationwide infrastructure and marketing plans before we release our products, we think we've got the ammunition to get us through anything.

We have set proper expectations, dotted every I, crossed every T. Having been around the block a time or two we are aware that there may be some unknown risks and challenges on our journey, but we are ready for them all!

We are remaining flexible, and by communicating any changes in our production plans to our backers and investors along the way, we've thought about the possible outcomes in many scenario’s. We remain confident that we can deliver this project to our backers without any delays.

Certificates of ownership will be delivered before Christmas 2017 and our projected delivery of the X1 Explorer will begin in February 2018.

    THANKS FOR HELPING US, AND OUR PLANET

    We would like to thank you for helping us launch the world’s coolest eBike, and for helping to save our planet $5 at a time.

    We are committed to the cause of a greener Earth, so we are donating every pledged dollar from this reward to EDF.ORG. The Environmental Defense Fund has been helping our environment for 50 years and we are proud to contribute.

    In return, you will receive a subscription to our newsletter and be kept in the loop as our X1 green technologies evolve.

Your name will be forever listed as someone who supported us from the very beginning. There you will also find a link to the Solutions Project website for more information about their mission.

    The Explorer is a big step forward in making our transport systems less congested, our planet greener, and in reducing our carbon footprint. We remain committed to influencing the progressive changes to move the eBike industry forward, but we are unable to do it without you. We also realize that we can’t get there in one easy step, but we are forging a path toward this change, and as we do - we want to share our story with you.

    If saving our planet, and making greener transport solutions is an ideology you support, please consider the minimum donation. We thank you for your support of a greener Earth.
