After its first appearance at Intermot 2016, Neematic FR/1 is now available for reservations. The first series of FR/1 model, limited to 50 bikes, will be shipped worldwide mid 2018.

Neematic team has developed the ultimate machine for the emerging high-performance ebike segment. With immense 15 kW peak power, mid-drive motor, and a total weight of 52 kg (115 lbs) the FR/1 hits that sweet spot where extreme dirt biking meets bicycle convenience.

As a reflection of its position between motorcycle and bicycle worlds, the FR/1 comes with both throttle twist and super pedal-assist modes.

Riders will be able to reach top speeds of 80 km/h (50 mph), and enjoy up to a 100 km (60 miles) range with a single charge. The FR/1 first series will be equipped with a large removable 2.2 kWh Li-ion battery, and utilise only top-notch components – such as Fox 2017 shocks, Hope tech3 V4 brakes, Pinion drive and DMR pedals.

“Our team is thrilled to be able to bring FR/1 to the public. This bike delivers a massive 280 Nm torque at the wheel, and best in class suspension, which is made possible by our unique mid-drive frame design. The FR/1 stands at the forefront in terms of design, engineering and performance, and we would not have achieved this without the support of our fans, investors and world-class advisors”
Domas Zinkevicius, Co-founder and Chief Engineer

NEEMATIC is experienced best on forest trails and suburban dirt. It has been built to offer off-road fun without the hassle of maintenance – riders can keep their FR/1 at home, transport it easily on a bicycle rack, and quickly charge it when and where they need using the removable battery.

“From the day we started we knew that  electric was a completely new experience. It would take more than a technology shift, we needed to shift perception, too. NEEMATIC has been engineered to fill a category of its own- the perfect marriage between dirt bike and mountain bike.”
Domas Zinkevicius, Co-founder and Chief Engineer

The first 50 models are now available for a discounted EUR 8000 before taxes, and you can now secure the Neematic FR/1 with a EUR 200 deposit from the brand new neematic.com website.
