Delfast – the e-bike that can go for 236 miles on one charge

$165,800

Delfast has been working successfully since 2015 in Ukraine, as an eco-friendly delivery company.

Our electric bikes are not an abstract dream or concept — it's the real-deal, hardcore electric bike project that’s available for use regardless of gender and age. We use crowdfunding to match demand for our products with actual production. It’s not necessary to be in excellent physical shape to travel long distances on an electric bicycle - along with Delfast bikes it’s possible to easily and comfortably cover 236 miles on a single charge .

 

It is not necessary to be in excellent physical shape to travel long distances on an electric bicycle - along with Delfast bikes it is possible to easily and comfortably cover 236 miles on one charge.

 

 

 

 

 

There is a significant quantity of different e-bikes, but their available range of distance is well below cyclists’ needs. That’s where the DelFast bicycle is going to obliterate the distance limit.

We have collected a unique experience by constantly exploring, analyzing and modifying the design of our electric bikes.

The DelFast e-bike is meant for those who need to use a bike on long-distance trips both in urban areas and outside cities. It also possesses all the technical features that are needed for such kinds of trips.

Front turn and automatic brake lights help keep you visible on the road or in city traffic.

 

A powerful lantern ensures safety of movement together with navigation lights. In the dark, Delfast is ready to help you continue your journey.

We put convenience and safety at the heart of everything. This will allow you to experience all the advantages of a modern electric bike.

The bike computer displays charge level and other useful information. It does not fade in the sun, and is visible in all weather conditions.

Delfast bikes are simply designed to travel really long distances.

236 miles is not an artificial figure that the electric bike is able to pass in ideal conditions of the passenger or on a training stand. We challenged ourselves and went on a trip on the top model of Delfast. We charged the bike, took the camera and made a movie - from start to finish on one charge. Check out our time-lapse video and see how it went.

  

We’ve created three versions of Delfast electric bikes, each is equipped with an improved frame and the most powerful battery. Each of these models can be used as a daily electric transport. They’re suitable for cycling and traveling out of town, and due to an exceptional range they can compete even with an electric car!

 

  

 

 

 

 

The possibility of limiting the maximum speed allows Delfast electric bikes to comply with all legal requirements in your country or state. We’ve taken care of the convenient switching modes, so you can enjoy the maximum speed on the racing track. Delfast e-bike has 3 limit modes for different countries:

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Q: How reliable are the batteries in Delfast bikes? 

A: We use reliable, US-made batteries (48V 64Ah 13S12P Boston Swing Bluetooth BMS). Under the right operating conditions, they’re capable of withstanding up to 3000 charge cycles! Is it a lot? About three times more than typical electrobikes. Partial charge / discharge, for example, up to half "spend" only half a cycle. Don’t overcool the bike, use reasonable care while driving and jumping in rough terrain and it will last you a long time without the need to replace the battery or general maintenance. 

Q: Delfast bikes are equipped with a Pedal assist system? 

A: Delfast electric bikes support several power modes, including a system that allows you to feel assistance when you push the pedals. The presence of several modes also allows you to feel all the power of the motor on the racing track and comply with the requirements of legislation in different countries.

Q: What features are available through the mobile app? 

A: Our application is constantly being improved upon and available for Android and ios platforms. With the application, GPS tracking is available. You can also see the rest of the battery charge and switch speed modes using your smartphone. Connection with bikes is conducted through Bluetooth. 

Q: Are you likely to sell any of these bikes in the UK? I can see they wouldn't be legal to ride over here. 

A: We integrated pedal-assist mode and a speed/power limit of 25 km/h/250W to meet the standards of UK legislation. From the other side, our bikes have a 'no limits' mode for those people who would prefer to use our eco-friendly transport and want to register the bike as a motor vehicle. 

Q. Do you deliver bikes to India, Australia, Kazakhstan or any other country?  

A. Yep, we will deliver bikes to India, Australia, Kazakhstan or any other country.  

Q. How much does the shipping cost?  

A. Nothing. All Delfast bikes are delivered to Kickstarter backers free of charge.  

Q. Does it really make 236 miles on a single charge?  

A. Yes, indeed. We made a 380-km journey from Kiev on a single charge without pedaling and recorded the journey on two GoPro cameras. You may find our time-lapse video above on the Kickstarter page. Also, we're going to establish a World Record in the very near future and we’ll fill in our supporters on when and where it’ll be done.  

Q. Are the bikes street legal?  

A. We created three speed limit modes to meet all the regulations in most of the countries in the World: - 32 km/h (20 mph) (legal in the US without license) - 25km/h/250W pedal assisted (legal in the EU) - 'no-limits' mode. 25km/h speed limit is legal for use in all countries (as far as we know). ‘No-limits’ mode is legal on a sport track or on the public roads if you register your bike as a motorcycle, meaning getting insurance and a license plate (we have space for it). Please respect the laws of your country.  

Q. How do I choose my frame size?  

A. One size fits most. The Delfast frame can be adjusted to fit you, your friends or your family members.  

Q. Can the battery self-recharge during use?  

A. Yes, Delfast has regenerative braking.  

Q. Do I have to remove the battery to charge it?  

A. No. You don’t need to remove the battery from the frame to charge it.

Q. How much will Delfast cost to charge?  

A. In the US, where KW/hour electricity costs about 12 cents, the cost of recharging Delfast battery to cover 13,500 miles (average yearly distance covered by average American citizen by car per year) would cost about 24 bucks a year.  

Q. Do I need to wear a helmet?  

A. Yes. No exceptions.

Q. How can I choose my Delfast color?

A. After the campaign ends, we will verify the color with you before delivery.

Risks and challenges

This isn't the first e-bike we built. Our extensive knowledge of e-bikes was gained from 3 years of manufacturing and using bikes for our own couriers, riding thousands of miles every day in 3 countries. Translation: we've been there and done that.
If the Delfast e-bike campaign is successfully funded, our team will have to ensure that our project timeline is successfully met in order to meet the promised deadlines. Although, there is a limit to how many Delfast e-bikes we can produce per month – and we’re not going to compromise quality control to just ship out a bunch in one get-go to save a little money. So depending on how the campaign goes, if you’re a later stage backer, you may have to wait longer to get your Delfast e-bike than earlier backers.
There’s the possibility of supply chain supply delays, but we're able to mitigate this risk by leaning on our backup suppliers who can provide us with components of the same type or same spec in order to fulfill our orders, so we’ll do our best to minimize any unforeseen delays.
We’re committed to making this process as transparent as possible for our supporters, so we’ll keep you in the loop regarding any and all developments, decisions, and possible delays. We’re committed to the goal that these bikes will be rolling into people’s homes by the beginning of a new cycling season.
Every pledge amount brings us one step closer to our target. Be a part of bringing the Delfast e-bike technology to a wider market, and contribute to our overall goal of offering greener, more sustainable transportation options across the globe.
