Third Element eSpire Comp: launch of the Pedelec version, price down by 35%
Before its official reveal at the 2011 Eurobike in Friedrichshafen here the first images of Third Element’s new model, the eSpire Comp.
This version uses the same motor and battery as the first model of the German brand, the eSpira launched in 2009 and which has since won numerous awards at Eurobike and Intermot in 2010.
In the pedelec edition, the speed of the "Comp" is limited to 25kph, it allows it to achieve a range of 80km instead of 50km previously, its weight is reduced by 4kg. The 6kg battery removable.
The main differences lie in the fork, shock and in the transmission.
It is equipped with a Shimano Alfine 8 instead of the Rohloff Speedhub 500/14 used on the original model. As for suspensions, the "Comp" is fitted with a Sektor RL fork and a Fusion Glyde R shock absorber instead of Marzocchi elements.
With a more original/radical design and superior performances obtained by the use of the CleanMobile technology this Cross pedelec stands out from the competition...
In exclusivity we reveal to you its price: € 4,750, placing the bike on the high-end pedelec market, a little above the Grace One and KTM eLycan but its extreme look and superior performances justify this difference.
Available in Spring 2012
To refresh your memory here is a video of eSpire which in turn is less expensive than its competitor, the KTM eGnition.
