Sparking a Revolution

We took the concept of the electric bicycle and kicked it up ten notches, all while keeping the price low.

Shocke Spark is the vision of a contemporary bicycle with futuristic abilities. It is a sleek, powerful, high-quality electric bicycle that will gladly obey your commands, even if it means hopping from the smoothest road to the roughest mountain terrain. You’ll never feel so comfortable embarking on any journey.

Riding Spark will be so exhilarating that you will literally make up reasons to go out for a ride – oh and, you’ll probably forget that you’re exercising, too. With its powerful motor, Spark will carry you up to 32 km/hour, should you choose not to pedal; throw in some leg power and the possibilities are endless.

Ditch the car, scooter, and that old bicycle, Spark will bring out the adventurer in you with an in-frame battery providing up to 70 km of juice, so go ahead and explore places you’ve never been. What are you waiting for? Take command and put a Spark in your life. You’ll thank us.

What Spark can do for You:

Get ready for an adventure on your next ride with Spark! Elegant and versatile, weighing only 22 kg, you can take Spark out anywhere and have a blast!

Exceed Your Limits

Go further than you ever have, and faster, too. With a 70 km range, Spark is equipped with pedal assist to help you get from point A to Z. The 350W brushless motor carries the bike at up to 32 km/h, powered by a 36V 12Ah high energy-density lithium-ion battery. Long distances and challenging landscapes never seemed like a piece of cake.

Be in total control

Spark is equipped with a control throttle and a 7-speed gear changer at your fingertips so that you can unleash and regulate power on demand. This is complemented with premium disc brakes on the front and back wheels.

The choice is yours, be in total control of your ride. Where will your next exciting adventure be?

Staying Safe

Safety issues have always deterred people from riding. To ensure visibility at night, Spark comes equipped with turn signal lights. The wireless controller is at your fingertips so that you can keep your hands on the handlebar instead of in the air. The tail light also comes equipped with a laser illuminated bike path function to increase night ride visibility.

Smart, too

Spark comes equipped with a LCD backlit display that indicates speed, distance traveled, motor assistance level, battery status, and much more. Challenge yourself every time you ride and beat your old record!

Just So Convenient

Not a mechanic? No worries! The in-frame battery is easy to take out and swap with a new one. You can also plug it into any outlet while you rest and it will fully charge in no time. After the battery charges, throw it back into the frame and you’re good to go!

Best of both Worlds

Spark has the feel of a traditional bicycle, with the capabilities to handle the toughest conditions, from hills to off-road shenanigans. Take it anywhere you want. Zoom past the people with the tights on and never bat an eye. You’ll have so much fun you’ll forget that it’s exercise.

Standing for value and quality

Spark is not the next toy or gadget, it is a revolution in motion. Spark is not the $500 electric bicycle with an exposed motor and cheap parts, waiting to be replaced in a few years; it is not the $5000 electric bicycle with a built in computer that boasts gimmicks you might never use. Spark is a response to the needs of the modern commuter, at a price lower than any other quality electric bicycle. 

Thank you!

Over the past year, we have worked very hard to bring our concept of Spark into a prototype. Please spread the word, join the revolution, and help make Spark a reality for cyclists everywhere.

It is only through your support that we can reach our fundraising goal of $40,000 and build our first production run of bicycles. 

Take a look below at the awesome rewards we're offering as an acknowledgement for your support. Thank you so very much!

Timeline

Shocke Bikes

In 2012, a group of young professionals got together with the aspiration of creating positive sustainable change in the world. With a few projects in mind, revolutionizing the way people went about their daily transport was the priority.

Shocke Bikes was founded in 2014 with the goal of bringing affordable high quality electric bicycles to North America. Shocke Bikes imagines communities where people of all abilities feel comfortable traveling around and exploring their city by bicycle. We want cycling to be a fun activity to a wide range of people, regardless of age, ability, or gender.

Our Vision

We aspire to increase cycling in order to improve health and quality of life, reduce the environmental impact of carbon emissions, and make our communities vibrant places to live, work and play.

Guiding Principles

Shocke Bikes has a passion for increasing the number of safe, knowledgeable and confident cyclists. We look to partner with a variety of organizations to create sustainable change. We are ethically and environmentally responsible with our resources and in our work.

Risks and challenges

As the saying goes: no pain, no gain. Every successful project will have been tested by a myriad of trials on the way, and we have studied hard for our tests.

We are working diligently to improve the efficiency of our production process, from simplifying and eliminating steps to working with different suppliers in order to perfect our final product. Therefore, there are certainly challenges we may face during the streamlining phase of our project, after its been successfully funded. Fear not however, because our team has made several contingency plans for every roadblock on the way.

We have thought of every potential obstacle we may face so that you don’t have to. We are ready to face challenges that are thrown at us and we will give our 100% to follow through even when faced with the toughest of these challenges. Even if for some reason we cannot deliver, we promise to be completely transparent and keep our backers informed and up-to-date on our progress. The range of professional competencies and experience our team has under its belt will undoubtedly Shocke you into a believer!
