eRIDELITE - HOW IS IT SO AFFORDABLE ?

The answer to this is very simple:

  • We decided to locally produce all the critical / unique components.
  • We hired people with the right technology skills to do this for us .
  • We value engineered the product, to provide the  features you need the most.
  • We negotiated hard with vendors to keep costs at a minimum 
  • We decided to operate on a reasonable margin rather than high profits.

ARAI CERTIFIED:

This indicates that the eRideLite is compliant with the safety norms laid out by the ARAI and is a roadworthy electric bike. It also complies with the standards to get the exemption from needing a license (i.e under Motor Vehicle Act).

WHY CROWDFUNDING?

We have as a team spent 4 years developing this e-bike. Our main aim was to make this bike sustainable. We wanted to achieve this by making and testing components in India & using  locally sourced material and manpower. We want this innovation to bring a change in the way India travels, by making this a transportation option for the masses. 

We decided to go with crowdfunding rather than conventional selling because it allows us direct access to our customers. Our interaction with them ensures that we are able to work on the feedback we receive from them at a quicker and more personal level. It also guarantees that delays and service issues are at a minimum as we deal directly with the customer.Our main objective is to create a great product and provide quality service to give our customers a superior experience. 


Risks and challenges
  • For this campaign we believe we have sorted out the Delivery plan for the bikes. However, there is always a chance of something going wrong because of situations beyond our control.
  • These could be because of strikes/ bandhs, acts of nature (floods/ severe inclement weather), shipping delays because of issues with ships etc.For example the recent demonetization has affected sourcing of components for many manufacturers .Such situations are usually not planned for & this is what we want to highlight.

What are the standard parts & accessories that come with the eRIDELITE bike ?

 All necessary items are added as parts of the basic bike. It includes a good quality frame, quality tires & tube, a sporty handle, front suspension fork, disc brakes for the front & rear wheels, mudguard for the front & rear wheels , motor , battery with ignition key, headlight, horn, high end reflectors at the rear. See the feature image in the campaign for these details .

eRIDELITE 50 will have a LED display 

eRIDELITE 90 will have a LCD display .In addition this comes with a USB port. 

The battery will use cells from a reputed company like Sanyo , LG or Panasonic.

How does the bike handle on a steep terrain?

Performance on uphill is very good for the ERIDELITE. However the final performance ,depends on the steepness & load . We have tested the eRIDELITE across many flyovers around the country and found it works perfectly. In case of a very severe incline , use both the pedal and the motor.

How fast can the eRIDELITE go ?

The eRIDELITE is designed for a maximum speed of 25KM/Hr. If you pedal  simultaneously you can achieve slightly higher speeds.

Is the Battery safe if left on the cycle ? How do i  handle the Battery when charging?

There is a "KEY" mechanism provided for the battery. Like on any regular bike there are On, Off, Handle-lock positions in the key slot; In the eRIDELITE Bike too there are On, Off and Battery remove positions.In the " off" position, the key can be taken out and the battery is locked into the bike controller and cannot be removed from it .eRIDELITE Lithium Ion batteries are very portable. (less than 3 kg weight).In order to charge the battery, first turn the key to the “extreme anticlockwise” position by gently pushing it in. The lock is now disengaged and the battery can now be pulled out and taken off for charging with the eRIDELITE charger. To reinsert the battery after charging, make sure the key is in the same “extreme anticlockwise” position and reinsert the battery into the slot. The battery will  fit into the battery slot . The key can now be turned to the “on” position to continue further use.

How heavy is the e-bike?

The electrical components do add to the weight of the bicycle; however we use some of the lightest components available. The end result is that our bikes start at around 22 Kgs with the Lithium Ion battery. While this is a bit more than regular bicycles, it is way lighter than expensive electric bikes that use sealed Lead Acid batteries. You do not need to carry the bike home to charge it as the battery is removable.

What are the Battery specifications?

eRIDELITE uses a 36-volt Lithium - Ion battery and is designed for long running time. Batteries can be charged 300 times without  a noticeable loss in capacity. Please do keep in mind that e- bikes are similar to e-cars in this respect, in that the mileage or range you get from a liter of petrol in your car depends on many factors. In the case of an electric bike, the range depends on the terrain, the weight of the rider, head wind, terrain gradient, whether you pedal a bit or not at all, smooth running conditions, proper maintenance and many other factors.

What is the cost of a Battery, if i wanted to buy an extra one?

The current cost of the Batteries is as under:

  • eRideLite 50 - INR 9,000
  • eRideLite 90 - INR 17,000

Above prices include all taxes and shipping costs to a location in INDIA.

The above prices may change at any time.

How safe and convenient is the  eRIDELITE on Indian roads?

eRIDELITE is designed by a Indian team for local conditions. To make it a smooth ride on Indian roads a front suspension fork is provided. To ensure the best of passenger safety - disc brakes have been added on both wheels.

How does crowdfunding work?

Crowdfunding in India is a relatively new concept & is growing very quickly.

It’s  a concept that allows a large number of funders (like you) to fund an  Idea or a cause or event by giving small amounts of money online. Fueladream is a crowdfunding site and platform in India that allows for  such a pooling of funds.

You can fund innovations & ideas on the crowdfunding website FuelADream and be the first to get these products or make them come true. You can also do a good turn by funding charities and causes through crowdfunding. When you fund a charity it’s more like a donation  & you get small innovative rewards like a shout-out on a FB page or a thank you email from the beneficiaries.

Fortnightly updates have been committed to after the campaign ends.

Tons of Materials already in-house to start assembly process. Few components on critical path and  might impact our delivery schedule.

1. Frame due to new changes, discussed before . Expected to be ready by March end

2. For easy detachment of battery, we have added new mechanism, that will provide all comfort of ride along with flexibility for easy detachment of battery, even without removing seat post. This is new development and hopefully should be able to incorporate in current batch of order. We do expect, it to make eRideLite lot user friendly. But this development might force us to delay delivery by week or so.

I am delighted to see the excitement and eagerness to ride eRideLite. We assure our best to align  with your decision.  To enhance eRideLite experience further, we have made quite a lot of improvements in product . To list some of them,

1. You already have seen frame choice (size), that itself is project

2. Geometry change to make it more comfortable for user

3. Seat Changes to provide better comfort.

It means possibility of a bit longer patience. We are still heading to start delivery by end of March ( as per original commitment)  and complete whole of delivery by April. In case somebody is in really urgency, I can send them one bike within week ( from the lot you have seen in promotion or during test ride ). But given the choice, I will like to wait and provide you only the improved version.

Project is going great. Based on your input and extensive workout, we decided to go ahead with 2 size of frame from day 1. Now you can select frame of 16” (recommended for people with height of less than 5 feet 7 Inch)  or 17.5” ( recommended for people with height more than 5 feet 7 Inch). We will circulate email to collect your choice shortly. Though we are working hard to ensure delivery as per commitment, but it might have impact of around a week on delivery start date.

Work for all major components and assemblies started.

Hi Ajeet I was expecting to receive a fully installed ebike, do we need to assemble the ebike ourselves ???
profile
Ajeet Kumar
Fortnightly update started. We will ensure regular update. Coming to assembly of eRideLite, we are working on multiple approach to this solution. We are in advance stage of discussion for dealership for some of cities. On the other hand, it takes 15 to 20 minutes for assembly of whole bikes for a trained cycle mechanic ( not necessary to have any experience for eBike). We are working to improve it further.

a) I second Ravi's request. Can u please post fortnightly updates. b) I see a video posted in your youtube channel about "How to assemble eRidelite". While it might be ok for experienced folks to self assemble a cycle, it doesn't look like a straightforward thing to do for everyone ordering the cycle, especially for folks who do not have the right toolset. Is guarantee covered for damages during user assembly? (also i personally hope the packaging of the product will be better than what was apparent in the video, since it looked damage prone, especially for the rear wheel with motor)
