SIMI VALLEY, Calif. – December 18, 2012 – Currie Technologies® eFlow® E3 Nitro electric bike has been selected as one of the Top 10 finalists in the Last Gadget Standing competition.

The winner will be selected at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas this coming January 2013.

The eFlow E3 Nitro is the first model in Currie Technologies new eFlow line of electric bikes. The eFlow E3 Nitro represents the latest technology in a fast-growing industry segment and is unlike any other electric bike on the market today.

This award winning design features a high-capacity Samsung lithium-ion battery pack fully integrated into the seat post for a sleek and aerodynamic shape. The unique design not only eliminates the need for additional racks or attachments to hold a battery, but also enables convenient charging in or away from the bike.

The eFlow is the first and only electric bike to earn the prestigious Gold Award from German design group iF International at the Taipei Cycle Show’s design and innovation awards, where judges called it “a completely new category of electric bike”.

The eFlow’s fast design is matched by construction and components designed for a performance ride, including an RST monoshock to smooth out rough roads, a 20-speed drivetrain, internal cable routings for a clean look, and Auriga E-Sub brakes, which have electronic sensors to cut power to the motor and activate regenerative braking that send power back to the battery.

“The Nitro is a high-end, extremely fast, powerful, and nimble handling bike,” says CEO of Currie Technologies Larry Pizzi. “We call them Bikes With Wings,” Pizzi continues, and “we’re very excited for people to understand why.”

Last Gadget Standing takes place Thursday, January 10, 2013 at 10:30 a.m. at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada. The contest seeks out products at the forefront of the digital revolution or in the words of the Consumer Electronics Association® (CEA), “products that are more than just a flash in the pan” and “that will endure and are pioneering the ways in which the digital world will change”.  Here, the contenders will give product demos in hope of earning bragging rights as the product “most likely to change the face of technology”.

The International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), sponsored by the CEA, is the world’s largest technology-related trade show that takes place annually in the Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, Nevada.

    Price??

    In my research anything over $1500 is not profitable.

      Hi Jim, the eFlow will retail for $3,995.

        Geez. Thats pricey for such a small motor wattage. There are better deals out there.

          Hi Jim,

          Thanks for your comments. The eFlow is certainly not an inexpensive ebike, nor is it intended to be. We chose the highest quality materials and components available to craft this unique, performance oriented ebike. From my experience, its unlikely that anyone would need or want an ebike that is more powerful then the eFlow — remember that motor wattage is only one factor of performance. I hope that you will have an opportunity to ride one at a Dealer near you and let me know what you think after having done so.

          Happy New Year!

          Larry

    This looks interesting. The battery location is innovative, and a choice of two AHr options is a smart idea. (is the $3995 cost for the 11 or 17 AHr version?) I wish they’d have gone with a 750W motor, but for city use 500W is OK. (unless you’re in SF!)

    My upgraded Wavecrest Tidalforce cost about the same and has it beat in many respects, but for an “off the shelf” e-bike this looks like a winner – especially for those able to fork over $4K.

    Mr. Pizzi is one of the most approactable and down to earth Presidents of a company you will ever meet. If You are looking to purchase a great quality bike, at a very reasonable price, you can’t go wrong with there products. They fully support thier products as if you paid three times as much, and have made me feel like I’m there only customer. Not bad, for the leading e-bike manufacturer. By Currie…and don’t worry.

    I paid $5000 for my 2000 Mitsubishi 5 years ago. I plan on owning it for another 5 years. How does that investment compare to a $3500 electric bike? It doesn’t. It is a frivolous purchase. I will spend $500 for an ebike and not a penny more.
