If you’ve been eyeing up ways to leave the car at home, that just got a little easier as Cairn announces its e-gravel bike the E-Adventure 1.0 is available on Cyclescheme. Plus, there’s a new Range Extension pack for going a bit further.
With tax savings of around 25% by buying through Cyclescheme, plus payment in instalments, you could be getting to work without the car or public transport. Certainly an appealing option for those who want to get fit, but even more appealing in the age of COVID-19.
We reviewed the Cairn E-Adventure 1.0 before, step over here to read the full review. While we found there was enough battery life for our commutes, we did think those with a longer hilly ride to work might need an extra charger or battery – and that call has been answered. Cairn has introduced a new Fazua X Cairn Range Extender Pack – a case that allows you to safely carry a spare battery with you:
There comes a time in the life of every E-Bike rider when they’ll want to carry a spare battery. Maybe because charging faclities are few and far between, or the ride is further than one battery can manage. We have responded to this need and created the Fazua Range Extension Pack.
Thanks to the fact that the FAZUA Evation E-Bike battery only weighs 1.4kg (that’s about as much as a full water bottle) it is easily possible to carry an extra one on the bike. However, although highly waterproof, it does have exposed terminals at one end. This means that when it is not in use they need to be protected. So, for those times when a spare battery needs carrying or storing, we have designed a custom case specifically to fit the FAZUA Evation battery and protect it from the elements when it is on the bike.
The case is made from EVA or Ethylene-vinyl acetate which is commonly used material thanks to it being resistant to water, heat, and UV. We combined with a waterproof zip which will keep out the worst of the weather. The Fazua X Cairn Range Extension Pack is designed (and supplied) with the Blackburn Outpost Cage and can also be used with other utility or cargo cages. Mounting is done with the 2 webbed loops on the top of the case keeping it secure no matter what you use to hold it in place.
Thanks to the fantastic new Fazua Motor Software update Black Pepper and the ability to carry a second battery safe and securely on your bike, the range of a Fazua powered E-Bike has dramatically increased, potentially offering nearly 300km. Now that is an E-Adventure!
A spare battery for the E-Adventure 1.0 costs £399.99 and the Fazua X Cairn cover costs £31.99.
