On first glimpse, the bike looked like the familiar Stromer ST1. But as we stood peering at this new, beautifully designed ebike inside the small “top-secret” black box at Stromer’s booth at the 2013 Eurobike show, we began to realize that this was anything but the same. This new bike, our host from Stromer explained in a hushed voice, was a speed pedal assist ebike with power, range and technology beyond anything else on the market. It would be available in the Spring of 2014.
Two of our ebikes, the Kalkhoff Agattu i8 & Kalkhoff Sahel Compact have received a "Sehr Gut", the highest rating from Extra Energy, Europes premier ebike testing organization. Read all about the test results and other ebike news in Extra Energy's latest publication:

To us at The New Wheel, the vision coming out of Felt and manifested in their 2015 launch of Felt Electric is truly revolutionary. They have put together a line-up that is innovative and brave. They are imagining their bikes fitting into a inchoate electric bicycle lifestyle that is young, modern, and creative.
