Every e-bike by Kudos you can guarantee are very well thought out and designed. Kudos is a creation of parent company Rally Design. The engineers have taken their years of experience building high performance parts and put that into Kudos E-bikes. Now having been established for nearly 10 years Kudos have built a reputation for building high quality e-bikes at a much more affordable price than it’s competitors. The Kudos Safari had to be hard wearing as it was designed for the hire industry. And like the well known London black cab are over engineered to cope with the stress of city driving. Such as the many pot holes our councils seem to neglect. These are designed to be hard wearing with minimal maintenance and little touches like the 8 speed hub gears reduce the maintenance needed while improving city riding with instant gear changes even from a standstill.
Originally conceived for the needs of the e-bike hire industry, its style must have unisex and universal appeal, with a robust ‘chunky’ appearance.
The specification was for an easy to ride, easy to mount, step through bike which would suit riders 4’10” (147cm) to 6’2″ (188cm) with only (2) frame sizes. This has been achieved by a specially strong seat tube, long immersion depth seat post and multi-adjustable handlebar stem. Also the bike had to be as maintenance free as possible with the Shimano Nexus 8- speed internal hub, easy clean strong frame and Promax ‘V’ brakes front and Shimano roller brake rear.
The 2.125 ‘fat’ tyres on 26″ rims and sprung saddle, together with high quality suspension forks, offers maximum ride comfort.
Battery depreciation costs have been minimised by use of the 10AH LiFePO4 battery, it is warranted for 2 years but could have 5 years of life, replacement cost is reasonable.
Integral Spanninga LED lighting front and rear ensure the bike can see and be seen. The simple to use PAS controller offers low, medium and high power assistances with LED battery indicator and lighting switch, a throttle is a no cost option.
The bike is currently under EN15194 testing, all components have been specially selected to be well proven and robust in usage, the bike meets the power, operation and speed restrictions to allow legal unlimited riding on bridleways and cycle paths.
Strong and substantial pannier bags are included in the standard cost.
Available in black, white and silver, there is a colour way to suit all tastes and ages, sexes and environments. ‘Safari’ is currently almost a unique bike which should answer the requirements of so many.
