THE BEAST STORY

Like to mark your own path? Don't want to be limited by the road? The Daymak Beast Ebike is for you! This electric bicycle that acts like a scooter has full functional pedals that make it street legal in most of the civilized world without insurance or license, and it has wide tires that allow you go where regular bicycles can not go! But wait, the Beast doesn't stop there! Not only can it go on paved roads, dirt roads and off road, it also charges while you are riding, working or resting! 

Imagine going into the woods, camping, on a farm, on a mine, in a park, any where, without making a noise! You can listen to the birds or the waves! Your Beast is 100% green. In fact it is one of the greenest ebikes in the market thanks to its solar battery pack! 100% Green! 100% Fun! For ages 16 or older!

Daymak Battery Pack
Daymak Battery Pack

 The solar battery pack charges at approximately 1 km/hr or 0.6 miles/hr in any type of daylight. Cloudy or sunny the battery is charging! 90% of ebike riders  do approximately 10 km/6 miles or less per day. This means most riders will have no need for a charger (don't worry a charger is included if you need to charge faster).

The Beast's removable battery pack can act as an emergency power generator and features two usb ports where you can plug any small device from your smart phone to a notebook and with 110V/220V plug available on the Ultimate version you can even plug in a TV. What more could you ask for?

KICKSTART YOUR BEAST

Daymak is based in Toronto, Canada. We have been in the business of ebikes since 2001. We have always dreamed of designing our own ebikes, so here we are developing the Beast!

Over the last two years, we have designed and built an all terrain ebike which challenges all regulars myths about ebikes. We are now ready to share the final design result with the world. We are offering the Beast to the early adaptive kickstarter community to find out who is interested in riding a Beast and to see where it will go next!

We're a small company with 10 years+ experience in selling electric bicycles and electric scooters. We believe this is a big idea and are interested in finding supporters to raise the amount of capital needed to establish the Beast as a product in a global market. The additional supplementary financing we are seeking will finally allow us to concentrate on all the details that still need to be worked on like the modification of the frame or the improvement of the driving dynamics. Furthermore, we have to fulfill our engineering obsession of perfecting the Beast in every detail. It will take our team a lot of work, power and money to be able to start with the serial production to share the Beast with the rest of the world.

As we prepare for the production of our first run  we are excited for all the potential backers' support and commitment. If we reach our goal we will be able to add additional features such us upgraded components. The KMC chain, Shimano Disc Brakes, Samsung batteries and most of all, the leading edge Smart phone app for iPhone and Android that will bring the Beast to the next level! The wireless app will talk directly to the motor and batteries and will allow your phone to display all information such as your speed, distance traveled, GPS, battery level and can act as your key.

HELP US GET THE BEAST TO A SPEEDY START!

We appreciate all support! Including sharing links with your friends!
Upon reaching our goal we will give 1 Beast Deluxe free to whoever gets us the most referrals, links or shared links and we will post the winner on our website and Facebook page.

Thanks again for reading!

Let's do it!

DAYMAK BEAST TEAM

Aldo Baiocchi - Founder/CTO 

Aldo is the force behind the vision of the Beast alongside his team in Canada. He is also responsible for bringing the product to market. He believes the Beast should be fun, useful, and bring smiles to everyone around. The Beast is part scooter, part dirt bike, but it's actually a bicycle! and 100% fun! 100% green! and street legal. That's right you can take it on the road with no insurance or license!

Mike Chow - V.P. Research & Development

Mike believes in simplicity but leading edge. Details must be perfect or the product should not go out. He is responsible for the fantastic battery pack design that continuously trickle charges. Mike believes anything is possible and all suggestions about future enhancements should be directed at him.

Anthony Zhang - Lead Engineer

Anthony is a dedicated team player who spends long hours to accomplish the tasks set out. He is responsible for transforming 3D files into reality. There is no technical challenge that Anthony can't overcome.

Billy Dang- Engineer

Billy can build almost any product from scratch. Give him a couple of steel pipes and he will shape them into any form imaginable. He has built several prototypes for the Beast and has added useful information that can only be obtained by riding the Beast. You can see Billy ride the Beast with passion in the video!

Wing Fee Yeung- Industrial Designer

Wing is a wiz at 3D designs. When there's something Billy cannot envision Wing steps in and puts everything in 3D so the team can conceptualize it before it's build! There is no design that Wing cannot do. His attention to detail makes the Beast that much better!

Hyram Baquirin - Product Designer

Hyram is Wing's right hand man and fills out the design for all other minor but extremely important details. He is professional to the core and an asset to the team.

Risks and challenges

Successful kickstarter campaigns sometimes have encountered problems when taking their prototype products into production. This includes finding reliable suppliers and meeting quality control standards necessary for engineering products for mass-production. Daymak has several years of experience in dealing with Asian suppliers. All it's suppliers have been inspected by Daymak and Daymak has done it's due diligence in making sure that the suppliers can build to Daymak's specifications. Our plans are in place, and a successfully funded project will provide the resources needed to complete and deliver the best Beast possible to you.
