Spanish bike brand BH have just unveiled their new Atom City e-bike range, that will be sold exclusively in the UK through 50cycles.
BH say the in-house 720 watt hour Lithium ion battery pack that comes on the top spec Atom City bikes are the biggest ever sold in the UK, and owners will be able to ride for 100 miles on a single charge... that's a couple of weeks of commuting without worrying about running out of juice for most of us!
50cycles founder Scott Snaith says that although Kalkhoff and Bosch have introduced batteries with over 600Wh recently, BH are taking things to a whole new level: “Many of their 2020 e-bikes come with 720Wh fully-integrated batteries - batteries completely hidden inside the frame. And this means a greater range, fewer charges, an extended battery lifetime, and ultimately happier cyclists.
“BH have decided to carry the cost of this battery upgrade, so the prices of the new BH Atom Pro range are extremely competitive.”
And what of those prices? They do seem very attractive indeed, with the models that come with the 720Wh batteries both coming in at £2,495. The Atom City Pro has a more standard flat top tube, while the Atom City Wave Pro has a step-thru frame.
There is also the Atom Street and Atom City Wave (both £1,895) which come with 500Wh batteries if you don't think you'll be needing all that range for the extra cash.
