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.”
