LOVED THE ROOK!
1. 500w Direct-Drive Hub Motor
The Rook comes equipped with a 500W direct-drive hub motor that is extremely powerful (peaks at 750W) and is well-suited to carry heavy loads at high speeds. With a top speed of 28MPH, the Rook provides ample power at outstanding value.
2. Long-Range Battery Pack with Power Bank
Unlike other electric assist bikes with bulky batteries taking up space on rear racks, the battery for the Rook is placed discreetly in the down tube, also assisting with better weight distribution. Our high capacity 48V / 10.4Ah Samsung lithium-ion battery provides maximum range, as the Rook can travel up to 50 miles on a single charge. As an added bonus, the battery also features a USB plug for charging mobile devices on the go.
3. Torque Sensor and Throttle on Demand
With a torque sensor and throttle on demand, the Rook is great for those travelling longer distances (you can go up to 45 miles on a single charge), on a variety of grades, and needing a little extra stamina to make it to the office while still being able to enjoy the ride.
4. SRAM ”1 x 10” Transmission
The Rook comes standard with a SRAM 10 speed transmission (also known as a “1 x 10”), providing ample range of gearing by one of the most respected names in bike components. The result is the ability to climb steep hills and commute with comfort and ease.
5. Loaded with Extra Features
The Rook is fully loaded with every feature needed to make riding effortless, including an adjustable stem, powerful front and read LED lights, a heavy-duty built-in rear rack (with attachments for saddlebags/paniers), front and rear fenders, and a chain guard, keeping water, mud and grease off clothes and ensuring riders arrive fresh and mess-free.
