Aggressive, edgy and attractive, the Storm 300 features a pewter metallic finish. Its free spinning 300 watt motor, which delivers 500 watts at peak, is the perfect blend of efficiency and power, ensuring that your ride is long lasting and effortless. The 36-volt 9 amp, high-capacity advanced lithium ion battery (LiFePO4) provides distances of 25 to 35 miles per charge. Just twist the throttle to activate the “power-on-demand” propulsion system and you can reach speeds of up to 18 mph. The SRAM X7 Twist 8-speed shifter offers quick and smooth transitioning between gears. You will also enjoy the stopping power and performance of the Avid BB5 disc brakes and Avid 180mm HS1, heat-shedding rotors. On the other hand, if you want to get some exercise, just pedal as you would on a regular bike and shift through the 8 gears to find your smoothest ride. Designed to be versatile and lightweight with a frame made from aircraft-grade aluminum, the Storm 300 is also foldable, portable and able to handle the activities of daily commuting and pleasure riding.
