M55 Beast Electric Bike

Need some extra torque on your daily rides? M55 Beast electric bike can provide it easily – all thanks to its powerful and intelligent motor capable of giving you 5.2 Nm of torque when it “feels” you need it most. It can’t push you forward on its own but provides matchless assistance in hybrid mode (motor+pedaling).

The Beast’s state of the art design is also utterly functional – the light aluminum 19” frame makes the ride easier, while racing Brembo brakes and Fox suspension make it more comfortable and much safer. The total weight of the ebike equals to 33 kg.

Shadow’s specs looks fairly good too. It can move at 19.8 mph and is as light as 59 lbs. Besides, as said above, it has no cables to mess with and is controlled wirelessly (2.4 GHz frequency).
