Introducing the world's most affordable carbon fiber ebike the EC1. Three words: Light, convertible, affordable .The average electric bicycle is approximately 60lbs/27kg. It’s not an ideal bicycle to pedal on it’s own and it’s really meant to be used by motor. Carbon fiber bicycles or carbon electric bicycles are presently only for the lucky ones. The EC1 carbon ebike weighing in at 34 lbs, is a versatile, convertible ebike that weighs less than most conventional bicycles and lets you cruise at speeds of up to 32 kmh/20 mph at the flick of a button.  But wait, you can make this amazing ebike even lighter by removing the back wheel with the motor and replacing it with the free, yes free, extra rim that we are throwing in just to make this an even more incredible product to our early backers. By replacing the back rim, which has the motor, with the regular rim that we are providing for you, you can turn your already super light carbon fiber ebike into a super light mountain bike for when you want to go trekking, or if you want to use the power of your legs instead of the motor.   

The versatility doesn't end there. You can leave the motor and batteries on the bike and only use them when you need the extra boost. You can turn off the bike and just use it as a regular bicycle and save the power for when you need it, or you can turn on the bike and cruise through the streets, the trails, or wherever your heart desires with the amazing power of this awesome ebike. Carbon fiber ebikes presently retail between $3,500 - $20,000+. We want the final product be under $2,000 and we are offering even better deals for early supporters.

We want the best. We hate settling for anything less. We never like to hear the words 'it’s not possible'. For years people have told us we can’t make a carbon fiber bicycle or carbon fiber electric bicycle for under $2,000. They told us that the frame would be too weak, the battery life would be too short, that it would look too weird. That motivated us even more. Motivated us to prove to them that it CAN be done, that we can provide a dual purpose carbon fiber bicycle / ebike at an incredible price. We began to brainstorm on how to achieve this. We needed the EC1 to be lightweight, modular, strong, streamlined and most importantly affordable. And we finally found a way! But our goal can’t be obtained without your help. With your support, if we reach our goal, we can make all of this, & the EC1, a reality. We want to raise the standard and give everyone the opportunity to enjoy the finer things. Don’t settle. Go for more. Own your very own EC1, the 2 in 1 carbon fiber bicycle and ebike. Help us make this happen by being an early supporter. Own your very own EC1 from $799 USD!!!

Modular – Exchange the rear wheel with the standard wheel provided and remove the Battery Pack to switch your carbon fiber ebike into a fully functioning bicycle. Save energy for when you really need it with the pedal assist or drop the weight even more and switch to the regular wheel for when you feel like some exercise.

Switch out the rear wheel and remove the battery for easy conversion into a regular bicycle!

Lightweight – The EC1 uses carbon fiber frame and aluminum alloy components to reduce the weight significantly with the bike weighing only 15.5 kg/34 lbs. Additional carbon fiber upgrades to the rims, handlebars and more can be done to reduce the total weight of the bike even further.

The EC1 weighs only 34 lbs/15.5 kg!
The EC1 weighs only 34 lbs/15.5 kg!

Built to Last – Using unidirectional carbon fiber. We offer the strongest weave of carbon fiber compared to the regular 12K or 3K tow. By doing this we have reduced the weight significantly without sacrificing the structural integrity of the bicycle.

Streamlined – By having the slim frame design you significantly reduce air resistance so you can hit speeds you couldn’t imagine. We also offer racing bike handle bars for those who want to take it to the next level.

Kickstarter is a great platform to see if there is interest in our vision. Does the world want a Carbon fiber ebike/bicycle under $2,000? Kickstarter opens the doors to the world’s community and gives us the answer. Plus, Daymak’s goal is to reduce the carbon foot print one ebike at a time and Kickstarter helps us share that vision with the world!

The funds raised will be used for:

  • Finishing the frame mold
  • Finalizing the design of the EC1
  • EN 15194 testing & certification for Europe
  • Develop an international network of service dealers
  • Achieve mass production to get the lowest prices which are passed on to our early supporters

Here is our expected timeline from development to delivery for the EC1.

We want to thank you all in advance for even taking the time to check out this project. We aim to show the world that we can escape the habits of old and make new trends. Trends that are, stylish, trends that are innovative, trends that are good for the planet.

Risks and challenges

The risks and challenges that we face, are based on the molding of the frame. We must ensure that we meet the perfect balance of a water resistant ebike, while being able to do any minor modifications like swapping out parts. With anything that is electric it needs to be as sealed securely to avoid corrosion, and as we all know getting caught in the rain is always a real possibility when riding your bike.

With that being said, we have more than 10 years experience developing ebikes, fulfillment, testing, quality assurance. So when we deliver, we truly deliver. No surprises!
