About this project
Off-road adventure made fun and accessible. With PESU you’ll find that extra power to go even further. Go beyond the end of the trail and explore a new path. Finally, a true, no-compromise, electric powered mountain bike that is unbelievably fun and undeniably practical.
Electric bikes expand your boundaries. Do more and see more. Incredibly fun, unquestionably practical. With extra power and pedal assistance, every ride will be pure joy.
The PESU Team will be exhibiting at two of the world’s largest bike exhibitions, the Eurobike and Interbike. Learn more about our e-bikes and other products there -- you’ll get to try them too!
Our mission is to make an e-bike that is truly fun. One that will enhance your riding experience and help you expand your boundaries, to go further, while not making your legs sore next day. We want to create an e-bike that inspires you to explore further, go off the beaten path and most importantly -- keep moving forward. In order to do that we had to push boundaries and look beyond the standard procedure.
An industry first approach - our PESU e-bikes are designed in conjunction with our drive unit. Every detail has been redefined so our drive unit matches our bikes and vice versa, which all match our mission perfectly.
Fastest Motor Response Time
As mentioned -- our mission is to create an e-bike that is truly fun. We weren’t satisfied with the other drive unit’s response time on the market right now, so we went and created our own. From 2015, we decided to self-develop and patent our own torque sensor. The torque sensor is a type of throttle that determines how much juice to feed the motor based on how hard you are pedaling.
With our own patented torque sensor, our drive unit response time has been reduced to just10ms. Other drive unit brands like Yamaha or Bosch have a response time of around 50ms. Having a quicker response time allows for a more intuitive riding experience. Just pedal and go.
Highly Efficient Drive Unit
Tweaked and designed in conjunction with our PESU e-bikes, it is a match made in heaven.
In the manufacturing process of the motor body, we adopted an advanced automation equipment, achieving a fully automatic winding, magnetic paste, and through high-temperature curing and radial magnetization technology, greatly improves the consistency of the motor body to ensure that the motor is efficiently output.
This is why our drive unit is quicker, lighter and faster than even the industry leaders.
Powerful, With Natural Assist Characteristics
With our 350w motor, our PESU e-bikes can assist up to 45km/h (28 miles/h). You’ll be able to move quicker, lighter and faster than ever. The powerful drive unit is developed collectively with the PESU, allowing us to create natural assist characteristics that you’ll forget it is even there.
Suitable For Every Ride
Don't be fooled by its compact size, our drive unit can conquer 40-degree inclines with ease. Most other drive units on the market can only ride up to 30-degree hills.
With a total of four outputs, the PESU is suitable for every ride. Whether you’re riding to work (sweat-free!), climbing a steep hill or going downhill, or even when you’re walking the bike (we’ve developed a walking assistance mode), the PESU makes the ride easier than any other bike on the market.
Go Beyond The End of Trials
Having a good e-bike and a drive unit is not enough. In order to let you enjoy as PESU as much as possible - we had to redefine on how we optimize the battery.
With our e-bike you can go up to 100 miles on a single charge. We've spent days and nights optimizing the battery, using professional approaches found in other major industries. With us, you can go further, do more, see more.
Read Your Speed. Intuitive & Clear
Easily read the data you need through our connected cycling computer. Featuring a clear 3-inch screen, which makes it visible under all circumstances. Our cycling computer is directly connected to the battery and with our built-in sensors you'll be able to read:
• Battery level
• Speed (current, average and max)
• Distance (total, and current interval)
• Output mode
Designed for Fun
Current e-bikes are bulky and heavy. We wanted to build a true, no-compromise, e-powered mountain bike that is unbelievably fun and undeniably practical. Turn every ride into a pure enjoyment. Ride to places where you couldn’t go before.
The Shortest Chainstay on any electric bikes
A huge part of why the PESU e-bikes are fun to ride is because of the short chainstay design. A shorter chainstays increases maneuverability, which makes handling the PESU easier and more fun.
We tested 20 different chainstay iterations before we were satisfied with the design. Our final design has a chain stay length of only 43.5cm, which makes it one of the shortest chainstays on an electric mountain bike. This makes you better to handle the bike and makes it more playful. As your weight is naturally farther back in the bike, you can even pop wheelies easier.
Designed to absorb shockEvery detail matters. Our frame was specifically designed for shock absorption. For more specific details check this out:
1. Our tapered headtube allows you to absorb more shocks and gain more control.
2. We’ve selected suspension forks to give you total control and comfort. The damping needs to work with the spring action and give you a consistent feel.
3. With an extra reinforced tube into the top tube and seat tube, it’ll give you and the frame extra strength when you need it. Do more and handle more.
4. We know that riding bikes extensively, you may need to replace the cables and parts sometime. That is why we opted-in for internal cable routing, which allows you to easily replace the brake/gear cables, while protecting it against dirt and tangled cables.
5. Our short chainstay design also fixes another problem: tangled chains. We’ve reduced the possibility of getting your chains tangled by moving the chainstay into a position that is protecting the chains, rather than hindering it.
6. Our frame is designed to provide easy access with a low-step over. Quickly jump on your PESU electric bike and ride away. This does not mean our frame has less strength: our reinforced tube will give you the strength when needed.
We made two models of PESU e-bikes - VOLADOR and MONSTER - to suit everyone’s need. These two models are different in frame design, component choice, and motor system. We developed two models to suit different needs.
Unleash the power with PESU MONSTER
PESU MONSTER is a 27.5" cross country electric mountain bike. You can choose to go with either 250W (Efficient EX) or 350W drive unit (Efficient ET). The MONSTER frame features a tapered head tube to enhance more stability and absorb shocks. Designed with a low step top tube, it gives you easy access and more convenience. We’ve chosen for the SR SUNTOUR XCM 100mm suspension fork, together with 180mm disc brakes.
The TTIUM Efficient mid-driving system offers 4 modes of power output within 10ms, cyclists will have full control of the bike. MONSTER is suitable for mountain bike trails, paved surface, and roads.
Conquer mountains with PESU VOLADOR
PESU VOLADOR is a 27.5" all mountain electric bike with the 350W TTIUM Powerful PT drive unit. Equipped with 150mm front fork to reduce turbulence it is more suitable for use on a slope or large drop. Ultra-short chainstay design offer superior controls, prevent the chain from jumping forward. 203mm front disc and the 180mm rear disc allows cyclists to slow down and stop at a split second’s notice.
The rated power output is 350W, while the maximum power output is 500W, making sure you gain enough and quick-response power needed conquering each mountain.
In order to ensure the highest quality possible, our frames and drive units have gone through extensive testing.

Risks and challenges
The prototype of Volador and Monster have been established, and the design has been fine tuned to perfection. This is the result of dozens of hand-made samples, countless design improving and verifications, and uninterrupted realworld evaluation. Such crowdfunding campaign can bring huge pressure to our product line. These high-performance components we adapted in Volador and Monster usually have a longer delivery dates. In order to insure the delivery date, we are working with mass production partners, and shorten our delivery dates by anticipating pre-order and batch production strategies. Throughout the whole process, we will keep in close communication with our supporters and update our progress continuously.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
