Folding E-bike with ARCC technology
The world’s most advanced bicycle frame meets the world’s most innovative power system. The Moulton® bicycle, with its outstanding efficiency, speed, comfort and responsiveness, can now be fully integrated with the unique ARCC e2-pod Intelligent Power System.
First produced by Dr Alex Moulton CBE in the ‘60’s, the basic Moulton® concept is to improve ride comfort and efficiency by using small wheels with high-pressure tyres, supported from a rigid frame by carefully engineered rubber suspension units.
The ARCC e2-pod Intelligent Power System has been designed by ARCC Innovations to provide unique intelligent bike power.
It combines variable power levels with automatic hill/gradient compensation and launch control. This allows commuting cyclists to choose the amount of effort both they and the motor provides; automatically compensates for hills and gradients; and provides ‘launch control’, for safety when moving away from lights and crossings in heavy traffic.
The ARCC e2-pod uses an industry standard 4.0 Ah Bosch battery which is readily available virtually anywhere in the world. This battery gives a typical range of about 30km, and can be recharged in 30 minutes on a desktop charger. A 6.0 Ah Bosch battery is also available and gives a typical range of about 40km. When the battery is removed, the bike reverts to its standard configuration and can be used as a regular bike.
The Moulton® bicycle equipped with the ARCC e2-pod Intelligent Power System is ideal for commuting or fast on-road riding. The bike delivers a well-tuned, responsive ride whether or not the ARCC e2-pod is activated, making it one of the very few successful alternatives to the standard diamond-frame bicycle.
