The Babymaker Fetches $4.7 Million

E-bikes are a well-known type of vehicle and the popularity of them is growing so fast. It is true that e-bikes cost significantly more than usual bicycles. But it is quite unusual for a new project to be able to collect $4.7 million from investor funds as part of a crowdfunding campaign. Numerous supporters paid a lot of money so the company could build the E-Bike that is a Babymaker. With this considerable sum, the ideas of the operators should now be easy to implement.

Interested parties had the opportunity to invest in the Babymaker on the Indiegogo platform. That is the name of the sleek e-bike, and the name is no coincidence. The bike not only has a nice design but also comes up with numerous interesting technical details. FLX Bike will manufacture these new bikes. They wanted to develop a super light e-bike and therefore turned to the Crown to collect money for it. The idea seems interesting to many parties because the weight of the e-bike is an essential factor. Those who provided money for the development could also count on advantages. The California-based company offers its investors the prospect of a significant discount for the finished product. Everyone who has financially helped the process of development will receive a discount of 47% for the finished bike. As a result, the entry-level model is going to be available at a price of just a little bit mor than $1,000.

Light, Good, and Extraordinary

The new e-bike carries an unusual name and this is the most extraordinary thing about it. The engine is said to accelerate the wheel to a speed of up to 25 miles per hour. However, this is not the same for all countries. The maximum speed is limited to 16 miles per hour due to legal requirements in some places. The battery of this Babymaker has seven amp hours. It can be fully recharged in two hours and has a range of speeds from 15 to a maximum of 50 miles per hour. However, the weight is declared to be a priority for manufacturers, and the total weight is just 176 pounds.

There Are Two Versions To Choose From

The company FLX Bike will provide its new e-bikes in two different versions. Bike fans can choose between a slightly cheaper model with rim brakes and a conventional chain, or they can opt for the Pro version. That comes with a belt drive made of carbon fibers. It also has brakes of hydraulic discs. The frames might be 19-inch or a 23-inch chassis.

The Babymaker was the most successful project of the year so far and came pretty close to the most successful campaign ever. The MATE e-bike raised an incredible $ 6.8 million in 2016, still holding the record for crowdfunding campaigns on this platform. If everything works well now, this project should be ready for sale in October.
