PG Bikes has just released the Blacktrail, a new electric bike in conjunction with UBC who are famed for their body work in Formula 1 racing. PG Bikes will only release 667 Blacktrails, each zero emission bicycle fully composed of carbon fiber, titanium, magnesium and aluminum. The bike can reach speeds of up to 100 km/h, which is extremely fast for an electric bike. The bike’s design is innovative and creative, crafted from a unique mix of carbon fiber for strength and lightness with leather for comfort and luxury. The eco-minded electric engine features a lithium-ion battery pack with a range of 200km on a single 150 minute charge. The only problem holding potential buyers back is the pricetag — at roughly $80,000 (60,000 Euros), why not invest in a Porsche 911 instead? Or a Ducati, an Audi S5 and a moped — plus a half dozen fixies thrown in if you really want to get your pedal on.
PG's Blacktrail will only run you about $80,000
