The Async A1 is a new electric moped intended to ride the line between urban and off-road use. Its cyber-funk design and potent battery pack make it a jack-of-all-trades for electrified personal transport.
Powering the Async A1 is a removable Samsung 21700 battery pack fueling a hub motor capable of delivering 70 lb.-ft of torque. Range varies between the standard and pro variants of the A1. The standard offers 40-75 miles, while the pro boosts those numbers to 80-150 miles. Moreover, the top speed is rated at 35 mph using a carbon belt drive system.
Suspension is handled by an adjustable front fork, a monoshock at the rear, and a hydraulic quad-piston braking mechanism. The Async A1 rolls on a set of 20×4-inch fat tires that can absorb the imperfections of the road or trail. In addition, riders can feel at ease riding over rocky terrain or pot-hole-littered streets thanks to its nearly two-inch-thick plush saddle made from polyurethane material. The A1 offers a max weight capacity of 330 pounds while weighing less than 125 pounds.
Lastly, the e-bike’s key powertrain components are weatherproofed, allowing for commuting rain or shine. In addition, important rider information is displayed on a full-color digital display screen. The Async A1 is available to order on its main website.
