We currently do not offer a motor that complies with EU or US e-bike street regulations. Our products are for off-road private-track use only. Hermes can be integrated into a frame to produce an S-Pedelec bike, and we encourage any manufacturers who are interested to contact us!
Our main goal in designing our motors is to provide the best possible riding experience. We tested batteries on and off the frame, and we found that moving the weight from the frame to the rider provided better weight distribution, more responsive suspension, a more agile bike, and a the best ride of any eMTB! The batteries can also be strapped to the frame, and Frame Mount batteries that bolt onto some frames are also available.
