An electric bike is made up of three crucial components:
As the heart of the SunCycle, the Li-Ion battery is the most crucial component for a successful operating system. It stores the energy of the sun (or mains electricity) and feeds it to the motor when needed. Depending on your bicycle’s design, the battery can be positioned either on the bottom frame, or underneath the rack.
Driven by an electric hub motor, our DIY e-bikes provide enough torque for smooth, strain-free movement – also over Namibia’s rugged terrain.
A display shows all-important riding parameters, like battery status and driving speed. It gives the possibility to adjust the e-bike’s performance to the driver’s needs, including pace and motor power.
SunCycles Namibia is the first to make the electric bicycle technology available to Namibians. With our DIY conversion kit, almost every bicycle can be retrofitted as an e-bike, starting from only N$ 11 500 (excl. VAT).
Our Kalahar-e-BushBike® is an electric bike, specially designed and made in Namibia. With its puncture-proof tyres and sturdy frame, it is made to provide mobility solutions for Namibia’s tough conditions. It can be used to commute to work, or as a taxi, delivery service or pick-up truck replacement.
The noise-free motor also makes it perfect for security guards and anti poaching patrol units.
From sandy dunes to rocky outcrops, dry river beds and secluded animal tracks, the Fatbike conversion will take its rider where no quad or car will ever be able to set tyre. Fitted with a stronger motor to support the broad tyres, it creates an ecofriendly alternative for discovering Namibia’s diverse landscapes.
Always wanted to explore the bush by bike, by never have space in the car to take one along? Our Foldable Fatbike is not only designed to fit compact spaces, but is also easy to carry around, and comes with extra broad tyres to move effortlessly on the beach and through sandy surroundings. It’s fitted with a less powerful motor, making it ideal for kids and those who need minimal additional support.
Built to provide maximum mobility for sports fanatics and nature-loving cyclists, our retrofitted MTB features a high quality Li-Ion battery and strong motor. The system supplies ample energy for climbing hills and supports fast and agile movement over Namibia’s rugged terrain. Bushwhacking at its best.
Our preferred city conversion is designed with a step-through frame for smooth access, and hosts a broad seat, ergonomically-designed handlebars, and robust pedals for extra comfort. With an aluminium frame, it is light and easy to use, and is rust free. Rounded off with advanced roller brakes for increased safety, the Cruiser is the preferred choice for commuting within the urban environment.
Our SunCycles are intended to be recharged through the power of the sun, making our bikes completely carbon free and the most sustainable mobility alternative on the market.
The flexibility of our Solar Recharge system allows it to be custom-designed to suit individual needs, and can be fitted to existing infrastructure, to recharge anything from a single e-bike to an entire fleet.
Solar Recharge stations can also be used as an off-grid electrification solution, as it provides the possibility to power a wide range of other electrical applications.
