February Update

Hi everyone,

Happy new year! This will be a short update, but we wanted to keep you up to speed with our progress! We are currently expecting the bikes sent to testing to arrive in about a week, which will allow us to start production and shipping. 

Here's one of our Hummingbirds working out on the frame fatigue test with a horizontal force! Also introducing our refined swing arm design, which is stronger and lighter.

In other exciting news, we are in the process of designing the box that you will get the Hummingbird in! Here are some photos:

 

And here are some of our frames being built over at Prodrive!

Stay tuned for a big update soon!

      Very happy to see all of your hard work nearing the start of production. Exciting for us and for the design team. I'm really looking forward to riding the finished product!

      Will you have a payment plan for people who are interested in buying a hummingbird, but are not able to pay for the whole amount?
