THIS IS STARK DRIVE

Designed for all types of weather conditions.

From the tropics to the polar caps, Stark Drive is designed to handle a broad range of temperature conditions with a ruggedized frame and high quality battery pack as well as all terrain tires (standard) or even our fat tire model. Take Stark Drive with you wherever you go. When Designing Stark Drive in Stockholm Sweden we were very conscious of the fact that weather effects battery life on your electric bike so we designed our electric bike with this in mind.

Colors as simple as your choice

From the beginning we are offering your choice of White or Matte Black and for those that want a bit more exclusivity a limited edition Metallic Blue will be offered on our best equipped Stark Drive.

Unisex Design

A bike that competes with the highest price electric bikes on the market with carbon disc brakes both from...

Front suspension by default with the option of rear suspension and various motor sizes depending on the rider.

21 Speed Gearing System included with all units of Stark Drive.

We have included the best all terrain bike tires we could find.

Tesla Uses Panasonic, So Does Stark Drive

You can choose to charge the battery within the bike or remove the battery and charge it at work or at home.

  • We also designed the bike to hide this battery and its power distribution system neatly inside the frame making the bike look just like a normal bike.
  • It includes a locking mechanism that ensures no one can remove the battery without your uniquely produced key.
  • You can choose to charge the battery within the bike or remove it and charge it at work or at home.
  • We will offer both a quick charger as well as standard charger with Stark Drive (2 or 4 hours charge time respectively).

OUR RANGE

Stark Drive has chosen not to 'reinvent the wheel' (no pun intended) so we went with an existing frame design built on readily available moulds in order to reduce the cost of tooling and manufacturing. We have chosen the best components designed to work in harmony with one another while keeping total cost at the forefront of our design goals.

The result is the most affordable electric bike in the world, bar none. Take a look at Stark Drive and the many customization opportunities that we offer as we believe that the perfect electric bike is the one that matches our customers needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Torque Versus Cadence Sensors

Stark Drive currently uses a Cadence Sensor but we are going to be launching a Torque Sensor Model via crowdfunding in 2018. But what is the difference between Torque and Cadence sensors?

Basic Cadence Sensor

The basic cadence sensor uses a magnet on the crank, it turns the motor ON when you start pedaling and turns it OFF when you stop pedaling. It works more or less like a switch.

You have to control the boost level and speed by adjusting the assist mode manually up and down. Most basic e-bikes have this.

The advantage it is an inexpensive way to get some sort of pedal assist onto the bike, but the disadvantage is that the pedal assistance can feel jerky, laggy and counterintuitive.

Torque Sensors

The torque sensor is a totally different technology that uses a precision strain gauge. It measures your actual force on the pedal, sampling at 1,000 times per second over the entire pedal stroke.

The harder you pedal, the more power it gives to the motor. If you pedal lighter, less power goes to the motor. It makes this adjustment in real time so it is technically amplifying your every input. It feels like you are bionic.

Most all higher end bikes use torque sensors. The disadvantage is the cost is significantly higher to implement this technology.

When do you plan to deliver?

Our manufacturing partner and Stark Drive LLC have a frame agreement signed and they are ready to produce as soon as we transfer funds. Our anticipated delivery for our early bird backers is summer 2017. We update our blog regularly and there you will find the latest information about factory production. Check there first.

What should my height be in order to ride comfortably?

Unlike 20" tire folding bikes, Stark Drive can be adjusted to comfortably pedal with 140cm up to 210cm by adjusting the seat. If you look at even average height people riding a 20'' tire bike you will notice when they pedal they have to stand, not the case with Stark Drive.
