Need a helping hand to stay in the group but put off by the looks and weight of today’s electric bikes?
Be prepared to change your mind when you lay your hands on an SER. The first road e-bike on the Spherik line proves that it’s now possible to enjoy worry-free power assistance without sacrificing the thrill of a good road bike. At only 28.5 lbs, it ranks among the lightest on the market, without compromising on power or autonomy. The built-in motor/drive system and the battery inserted in the down tube place the center of gravity low and well centered for predictable, natural steering. The carbon frame with harmonious and aerodynamic lines has all the qualities of the high-end Spherik frames. The components have been carefully selected according to the electrical power. All these features distinguish the SER from the rest of the e-bikes, making each ride simply an exhilarating experience.
The SER: “An electric road bike”, not “an electric bike for the road”
The words may seem confusing, but the statement deserves attention, because it summarizes the essence of our approach. While the competition is trying to give its heavy electric bikes the appearance of road bikes, Spherik is doing the opposite. The SER is first and foremost a road bike, similar to the other carbon models in our line, which we have equipped with a mini center drive motor and a lightweight battery.
One of the key advantages of the new drive unit is its low weight, at a mere 2 kg, but with a 200 W rated output power and a max torque of 55 Nm. The electronics and 200 Wh inTube battery add less than 2 kg more. This takes the total system weight to less than 4kg, including display and remote shifters. Thus, the SER bike behaves like a regular road bike, benefiting from significant assistance at times when you need it, most often when starting/accelerating or when climbing. This approach avoids the vicious cycle of bulky pedelec bikes, which require almost constant assistance and necessarily a more powerful battery and motor, which also contribute to adding weight, and so on.
With its reasonable weight, the SER requires less engine assistance, which gives it a riding range similar to other e-bikes loaded with larger batteries. This range is hard to determine because it depends on many different variables, including total altitude gain, degree of slope of the climbs, weight of the cyclist, type of pavement, tire pressure, wind direction and intensity, and of course the average speed you want to keep. Let’s just say that you can go out as long as usual, at a faster pace, while providing much less effort.
Riding the SER, you will feel both powerful and rejuvenated, exhilarated by the feelings of a high-end carbon bike, whose appearance and behavior comply with the spirit of a regular road bike. Isn’t it what every cyclist is looking for?
100% Torayca T700
• Bafang M-800 Motor.
Chosen for its reliability, Bafang being the world’s largest manufacturer of electric motors. Also chosen for its very compact and lightweight format,
and for its powerful torque of 55 newton-meter of 200 Watts.
• Assistance limited to 32km/h, the limit in Canada, unlike some other bikes on the market limited to 25km/h (European limit). 5 power modes
easily controlled from the handlebars.
• Battery Bafang M 800 Chosen because it is the lightest on the market, the battery representing the greatest weight gain on an e-bike. Also
chosen for its power of 215 watts/hour, which is more energy than you will ever need, even for a long hilly ride.
