Speedmachine S-Pedelec

The Most Electrifying Way To Go 45 Km/h (28 Mph) On Two Wheels

We designed the Speedmachine as a vehicle that already stands for the maximum development of speed without a motor. In the fast electric bike Speedmachine S-Pedelec, we combine this feature with the strongest of our e-drives. The Z20 RS from Neodrives is the most powerful and refined you can imagine for motorization in the rear wheel of a recumbent. Result?

From 0 to 45 in 8.29 seconds. And with an energy consumption that any other S-Pedelec can only dream of. In an electric recumbent bike like the Speedmachine S-Pedelec, the outstanding aerodynamic properties of this type of bike come into their own.

Your safety plus in highspeed mode: The low center of gravity keeps the Speedmachine S-Pedelec perfectly manageable. The battery is mounted centrally and low under the seat. Even when fully loaded with up to four panniers, you are always safely on track and dynamically staying on course.

Safety Ex Factory

Plus in Equipment as Standard

The fast electric bike is driven by a powerful and almost noiseless rear wheel hub motor with a maximum power of 1000 watts. The German manufacturer claims an efficiency of more than 85 %. The standard equipment of the Speedmachine S-Pedelec includes a starting aid, which pushes the vehicle up to 4 km/h (2.5 mph), even without pedalling.

All-round equipment: According to EU classification, a two-wheeled S-Pedelec is a light motor vehicle. For as much safety as possible when moving in traffic, the European bodies have made numerous specifications for fast electric bikes. The Speedmachine S-Pedelec is therefore equipped ex factory with, for example, a hydraulic disc brake (Magura MT5e), the IQ-XE lighting system and a large rear view mirror (both from Busch & Müller). The basic equipment also includes the rear rack, the Pletscher Esge Zoom kickstand, and Marathon Plus tires from Schwalbe.

Your performance advantage, even without authority regulation: The Speedmachine S-Pedelec is always fully suspended, and we install the otherwise optional Concept suspension fork as standard. The reason: Our engineers are convinced that such a fast electric bike must shine in every driving situation and even on rough surfaces with a solid road holding. The perfect complement to this, so that you have your fast electric bike quickly and safely under control, is the above seat steering with Aerobar with the stem forward.

Top Virtues of the Speedmachine S-Pedelec

Travel suitability
Everyday strength
Freedom of Choice

Individuality Inspires a Little More!

Nevertheless, individuality is not neglected! A technical delicacy is the 12-speed internal gear transmission C1.12 from Pinion, which we can place on request instead of the derailleur prominently in the boom. For the standard gearing option there is alternatively a lightweight carbon boom available as a deep black highlight. The Rockshox Monarch RL suspension element for the rear wheel also offers a noble upgrade option.

You also enjoy the freedom of choice when it comes to the seats. The three models BodyLink, ErgoMesh and ErgoMesh Premium are available in the standard size, the ErgoMesh also in the wide XL version. For more luggage we offer the Lowrider. This allows you to store two additional panniers on your fast electric bike. As a twin pack also come the 2×0.6 liter PE drinking bottles with mounting set for the seat. And for twice as much rearward vision, a second mirror is available as an option. You can find even more equipment options in the picture carousel below.

And if you want to give your fast electric bike your own color touch, you can choose from more than 200 RAL and custom colors instead of the standard powder coating in Crimson red or Silver grey: Whether Colza yellow (photo) or British Racing Green – the favorite color inspires a little more!

Speedmachine S-Pedelec Frequently Asked Questions

speedmachine s-pedelec elektro-liegerad 45 km/h fast electric bike 28 mph MG_8853

The weather protection fairing Streamerand the aerodynamically advantageous Above Seat Steering option on the Speedmachine S-Pedelec are not compatible.

While this is possible for the Speedmachine base model with the conversion kits offered by HP Velotechnik, the Speedmachine S-Pedelec is only approved with the standard aero handlebar. A conversion is therefore not possible.

With the Speedmachine recumbent bicycle, the boom can be pushed in or pulled out within a certain margin (approx. 10 cm / 4″ in total) without changing the chain length. For more far-reaching adjustments it is necessary to adjust the chain length. A quick frame adjustment cannot be used because of the special chain line of the Speedmachine frame.

In our concept, the specialist trade is the central sales pillar. Our selected and trained specialist dealers can advise you in detail. Above all, however, they offer a promptly available service locally, which we cannot provide within the framework of our manufactory with some production processes planned for the long term. For these reasons we also do not sell directly to the customer at the factory.
