The world's most advanced bicycle frame meets the world’s most innovative power system. The Moulton bicycle, with its outstanding efficiency, speed, comfort and responsiveness, can now be fully integrated with the unique ARCC e2-pod Intelligent Power system. All the excellent Moulton features are retained – the supple suspension, the superb steering, the ultra-rigid frame and unmatched performance.
First produced by Dr Alex Moulton CBE in the ‘60’s, the basic Moulton concept is to improve ride comfort and efficiency by using small wheels with high-pressure tyres, supported from a rigid frame by carefully engineered rubber suspension units.
The ARCC e2-pod Intelligent Power system has been designed by ARCC Innovations to provide unique intelligent bike power.
It combines variable power levels with automatic hill/gradient compensation and launch control. This allows commuting cyclists to choose the amount of effort both they and the motor provides; automatically compensates for hills and gradients; and provides ‘launch control’, for safety when moving away from lights and crossings in heavy traffic.
The ARCC e2-pod can be attached and removed from the bike in seconds, and uses an industry standard 4.0 Ah Bosch battery which is readily available virtually anywhere in the world. This battery gives a typical range of about 30 miles, and can be recharged in an hour on a desktop charger. When the pod is removed, the bike reverts to its standard configuration and can be used as a regular bike.
The Moulton bicycle equipped with the ARCC e2-pod Intelligent Power system is ideal for commuting or fast on-road riding. The bike delivers a well-tuned, responsive ride whether or not the ARCC e2-pod is activated, making it one of the very few successful alternatives to the standard diamond-frame bicycle.
The ARCC e²-pod Intelligent Power System complies to BS EN15194.
