By analogy with the compact and unpretentious Citroen 2CV, I tried to develop a concept of an inexpensive city bike that would combine simplicity of production, practicality, ease of use and low weight of 15-16kg (33-35lbs), which, if necessary, can be easily lifted on several stair flights, and in the basic configuration, it is easy to transport the necessary things or purchases, while from the outside it looks like a regular, not electric bike. Traditionally, bicycles use aluminum tubes that…

My latest Avial e-bike prototype covered 2,500 km during both off-road terrain tests and in the city mode. This e-bike model is based on a patented frame made of aircraft-grade aluminum square profiles which are connected using rivets without welding. With the loads up to 120 kg, the frame pleases me with its strength and rigidity. During the tests, brake pads were replaced several times, the next step is the replacement of the rear wheel due to wear. Riveted Avial…

At the UO-211booth, which was located in the Special Area To Start-Ups of the Eurobike 2019 international bicycle exhibition, we presented two new Avial bikes prototypes, one of which was equipped with a mid-drive motor, and the other could be easily equipped with a rear-wheel drive up to 350W. It was not only our first exhibition but also the first public presentation of our prototypes, the fate of which largely depended on the feedback of visitors. Together with the guests…

The Avial prototypes of e-bikes, built like an Aeroplane, equipped with both mid-drive system and rear-wheel motor of 250W will be presented at the exhibition Eurobike show 2019, which will be held from September 4 to 7 in Friedrichshafen, Germany. We invite you to visit our stand UO-211, where we can discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the design of our prototypes, as well as hear your suggestions about possible improvements or collaboration. Many visitors of our website already know…

As well as on our first prototype with the rear-wheel Bafang drive with a power of 350W, and on the second with the mid drive motor Comp C17 of the same power, e-bike batteries 48V, capacity 13Ah were set at the initial stage of tests. These batteries were assembled from cells 18650, with a capacity of 2600mAh. As a result, such a battery requires 5 x 13 = 65 cells; therefore, the casing with such set of cells has big…

The mileage of the second Avial e-Bike prototype, equipped with mid-drive motor Comp C17, moved beyond 800 km mark. Initially, we tested our e-bike prototype with the C17 motor, working in mode 48V/350W and giving up to 100Nm of torque. In such drive operation mode, our patented frame showed good ability to cope with a high of torque. We couldn’t record its negative impact from loadings on frame units. The first 300 km of Avial e-bike prototype tests underwent in…

Since we received priority on the patent application filed earlier, the second version of our bike, equipped with a mid-drive motor, “drive” for tests without camouflage. It was very unusual: pedestrians, motorists and cyclists who turned out to be near, stopped, looked at with interest, and asked – Did he you do it by him yourself? What are the characteristics? Why square profiles, not round pipes? How strong is this frame? How much does it cost? What is the name…

Since the original Avial e-bike frame passed the CAD simulation for loads up to 140 kg, the bike itself was equipped with MTB components, including wide studded wheels with a diameter of 27.5 inches, taking into account the fact that the e-bike owner can go out of town and meet quite difficult passable roads on his journey, then after the first 30 km of the second prototype run along the city streets, it was decided to test its operational capabilities…

For joint testing with a Comp 17 mid-drive system with a power of 250 / 350W and a 36V battery with a capacity of 11.6 Ah, the second prototype of the universal frame of our development was made; all the shortcomings of the first one were taken into account in the construction. In the new version of the frame, the distance between the axles of the wheels was also reduced, and the prototype geometry was optimized for size L. The…

For installation on our electric bike, I received a sample of an average Comp 17 Sporty Design drive motor with hull dimensions of 167 x 252 mm and a weight of 3.8 kg. This drive motor, based on the joint development of Japanese and Czech engineers, is capable of operating from a battery with a voltage of 36 or 48V and, depending on the settings of the software, provides capacity of 250 or 350W. Distinctive features of this drive model…
