eBikes offer a traffic-free and more sustainable means of commuting while being much easier to ride than traditional bikes. Unfortunately, the best models often come at a steep price, which has greatly delayed their adoption. An eBike conversion kit is, therefore, good news for many people.
An eBike kit is a cost-effective, DIY tool for transforming a traditional bike into an electric bike. Like virtually every other great innovation, there are a lot of eBike conversion kits out there. However, this masterpiece from Unlimited may be the best of them all.
Design and features
The manufacturers claim that the Unlimited kit is the lightest, most compact, and most efficient electric bike conversion kit in the world. The design team rallied their previous experience from building electric skateboard kits to deliver a minimalist yet powerful conversion kit that works with most bikes.
In its simplest form, the kit comprises a motor wheel, a wireless pedal-assist sensor, and a battery. Moreover, other add-ons deliver extra comfort and performance. The kit is compatible with a wide range of bikes, and it works seamlessly with brakes, discs, and rims.
Three kit levels to choose from
The Unlimited eBike conversion kit is available in three levels: SL, XR, and XR+. Riders have the freedom to choose the kit that best suits their needs and budget. The main difference between the three levels is the size of the battery and the presence of a stealth OLED display. Furthermore, only the SL kit is air travel compliant.
Durable and Waterproof
The Unlimited kit is tough enough to face all the rigors of urban commuting. Each component of the kit is built to last, and the manufacturers guarantee that your kit would serve you for many years. The waterproof nature saves you from the stress of having to park your bike in a garage at all times. It also ensures you can ride your bike in all seasons.
The best of battery, torque, and range
Unlimited eBike conversion kit sports a proprietary, fully-integrated high-voltage 52V battery that delivers unlimited range and power, just like the name suggests. At full charge, the largest kit would deliver a range of 50 miles and a top speed of 22mph. Naturally, the actual range would depend on factors such as the rider’s weight, terrain, and riding style.
DIY from start to finish
Installing the Unlimited eBike conversion kit does not require any prior experience or professional knowledge. All you have to do is swap your bike’s front wheel for the kit’s motor wheel, attach the battery to the downtube, and fix the pedal-assist sensor on the pedal crank. The absence of any extra wiring makes the kit easy to install while ensuring you have one less mess to deal with. If you’re having trouble installing your kit on your bike, the manufacturers have recorded a comprehensive installation video that should answer all your questions.
Unlimited eBike conversion kit is currently at the crowdfunding stage. The Indiegogo campaign has been warmly received, generating more than $120,000 with 16 days to go.
