Avionics is here to destroy your preconceived notions surrounding the electric bike. Accordingly, the Avionics V1 Electric Bike is a striking exploration of handmade craft and premium design. Every material and feature is more or less something to drool over from an artisanal standpoint. As a result you get a sturdy, resilient e-bike that’s second to none in virtually every department.
The Avionics V1 Electric Bike is primarily a study in brilliant curves and contrasts. Not only does it pair minimalist craft with modern electronics and speeds of up to 58km/h, but the sleek design harmoniously weaves strong Jatoba wood and black steel together like two overlapping instruments in an orchestra. More specifically, an openwork steel frame supports a wooden saddle, which sits atop a shock absorber. The handle bars incorporate wood at the horns, include the brakes, and seamlessly segue into the front forks suspension.
At the base of the bike is a waterproof and dust resistant wooden chest that secures and protects the lithium-ion battery and 5000 watt brushless electric engine. The chest also comes equipped with an immobiliser, charging port and USB port for charging your devices. At the front of the bike is a truly unique lamp that’s made of the same raw Jatoba wood as the other wooden components. That wood touts titanic strength, visible grain, and deep colour, and nowhere is that more apparent than on the one-of-a-kind handcrafted lamp.
As e-bikes grow in popularity, we expect to see more novelty in the design and material department. On that front, Avionics is off to a legendary head start. The V1 Electric Bike is quite simply like nothing else of its kind.
