The Ellipse M1 was the company's first traditional bicycle model and with the arrival of the E1, the company is now entering the e-bike market.
The Ellipse E1 comes with a high frame and elegant straight handlebars. Available for preorder, it comes in Moon Grey, Petrol Blue and Sand and has a headlamp, front and rear daytime running lights, indicators, brake lights and a set of lights that can be seen from all angles, day and night.
Ellipse E1 promises capable urban mobility, no need to be equipped with additional accessories. As for the security system, any suspicious movement generates a sound and light alarm, and the owner will be notified via the app.
The Ellipse E1 was developed and then assembled at Troyes. Ellipse themselves want to manufacture as many of their bicycles as possible in France.
Ellipse E1 specifications
The Ellipse E1 uses a Hydroformed 6061 T6 aluminum frame and fork with a total weight of 17.8 kilograms. The e-bike uses a Mivice 250W rear hub motor with three levels of pedal assist and a torque sensor for smooth power delivery.
The motor can propel the bike to a top speed which is limited to 16 miles per hour. The battery used is a 360-Wh removable battery that can be fully charged in three hours, and gives it a range of 25 to 44 miles on a single charge. Other components include a carbon belt drive, hydraulic disc brakes and Mitas LongWay 700x40c tires.
The Ellipse E1 comes with a five-year warranty coverage, and deliveries are expected to start in April 2023. The Ellipse E1 is now open for pre-order, with the pre-order price set at 1,990 Euros ($2,048 USD). However, this price will increase to 2,490 Euros ($2,562 USD) once the bike is officially launched.
