About

These bikes are going to excite people.

After 8 years of building a wide range of ebikes, we were ready to take our passion and experience to the next level. It was time to develop a high-performance, multi-terrain, super-tough FatBike. In other words, the ideal electric bike.

We wanted our FatBike to not only engage current riders, but attract new riders who never would have considered owning a performance ebike. With our experience in the ebike business, along with real-world customer feedback, we began to design a new line of high performance cycles. And they would have to not only compete with the best, but be the best.

To build bikes that meet the needs of North American riders, it only made sense to build them right here in North America. So every new FatBike will be engineered, assembled and packaged in our state-of-the-art facility in Montreal. These bikes are going to excite people.

Electricity in synergy with you.

When the torque sensor feels you need more energy, say to ride up an incline, it tells the electric motor to work harder to assist you. When you’re cruising along the flats, the motor eases up, mimicking your reduced pedaling effort. Coast down a hill while taking a pedaling break and the motor will do the same. In short, the bike is always working in perfect synergy with you.

Technology transforming the rider. And the terrain.

The Components > Premium #1

All of these outstanding features and technology would be worthless without the support of premium components produced by some of the top names in the industry: SRAM Components, Ergon grips and saddles and Schwalbe Tires, to name a few.

Specifications

All it took was one test ride!

 

In testing the prototypes, our expectations were completely blown away! Our FatBikes were put to the test by enthusiast bike riders of different styles, ages and abilities. Some were road warriors, others mountain climbers, while some we’re hybrids. All, without exception, were stunned by the product we’d created. We believe we have succeeded in producing the ideal ebike. A two-wheeled high-performer that allows any rider, regardless of age, ability or conditioning, to do things they never thought possible on an ebike. 

During testing of one of our prototypes, we ran into this avid mountain biker during his descent on the trails. This is what he had to say about our bike after riding for only a short time.

Every single rider returned from their test run with a big smile and the same question: Where can I get one?!

Our goal was to build a new type of ebike which would not only be at home in all types of terrain, but also thrill and excite its rider. The iGO FatBike does just that. It’s a unique mode of two-wheeled technology which opens up all sorts of opportunities for someone to get back on a bike after a long period of time, try something new, or go on a riding adventure they never thought possible. 

REWARDS

Risks and challenges

Since we already have our prototypes built and tested, the final step is to setup our assembly facility and start producing the FatBike. Delivery should be on time with the timeline given, and we expect everything to go very smoothly once these last steps are setup. As the assembly facility is part of our office environment, we will be keeping tabs on the production process and will be keeping our backers updated every step of the way.
