Feel Like A Superhero

“I absolutely love my Karmic Koben! It’s unbelievably easy to ride and it’s so fast and fun. Just thinking about it makes me smile.

It makes me feel like a kid again.”

- Cindy K. (Palo Alto)

“Your bike is a masterpiece! I’m selling all my other bikes, and just using the Koben S.”

- Kenneth H.

“Yes, I am still LOVING my bike! I ride almost every day and am totally one with the bike. It gives me the perfect ride up to UCSC.

I doubt I could ever go back to a conventional bike.”

-Robert O. (Santa Cruz)

“It is a blast going so fast! It is nice to be able to take it easy and still be moving along on the way to work, and then crank it up and let the bike rip on the way home.”

- David N.

“I love the bike. I haven’t really ridden since moving away from the flatlands of the midwest.

I love that I don’t worry about the terrain (in Seattle) anymore”

- Perry L.

The first thing people ask is, "What is an ebike?" We like to think its the best bike for everyone. With a modern design and the latest in battery technology, the old days of poorly made, heavy, ugly, electric bicycles are over. Now this is a proper ebike.

The second question is, "What makes Karmic better?" Everything. We've thought deeply about the rider before we even start designing. The Koben's high torque mid-motor feels supernatural, like you've got bionic legs. The Karmic battery has 45 miles of real-world range, so you can ride daily, without worry.

You control the boost to give a constant tailwind, or a hill-leveling amount of power. Our Koben S model adds a CVT transmission befitting a modern electric vehicle. The NuVinci N380 allows smooth shifts under power, with a wide gear range to fly on the flats or crush your local climbs. This is what freedom feels like.

While others want to compare numbers and spec, we think about it from a different angle. It is all about the Karmic Experience. How does it make you feel? Where do you want to go today? What will you do next? 

Don't just ride a bike, Be Karmic.
