This $10,000 electric bike brand just launched a much lower-cost model

Swiss electric bicycle company Stromer has just announced an update to the company’s ST2 line of electric bikes, making the Stromer ST2 better than ever.

The Stromer ST2 is the first bike in the company’s lineup to offer a Gates carbon belt drive.

These drive systems are prized for their low maintenance, clean operation, silent pedaling, and incredibly long lifespans.

The belt drive system is paired with a 5-speed internally geared hub that allows riders to shift from rest.

Stromer is one of the few high-end electric bicycle brands to employ a hub motor, or a motor housed in the center of a wheel. The Stromer ST2 features a 750W CYRO hub motor in the rear wheel that powers the bike up to a top speed of 28 mph (45 km/h).

That speed is the legal limit allowed for Class 3 e-bikes in the US. In Europe, that classifies the Stromer ST2 as a speed pedelec.
