Arevo may not be famous
but the famous Silicon Valley-based organization is utilizing its prowess in composites
manufacturing as well as 3D printing in order to build the first-ever 3D-printed unibody
electric bike.

Today two models are
being introduced under the brand Superstrata. This is a much-lightweighted analog, customizable for various riding styles.  It is a Class 1 e-bike with a 252Wh battery, a rear-hub 250W motor, and 60 miles of range.

Its frame is a unibody
which means that it is manufactured as a single piece instead of welded
together from numerous other pieces like other regular bikes. Strata said that
the utilization of thermoplastic materials will make this bike highly impact-resistant
without hindering its lightweight label.

3D printing is costly
but Superstrata has confessed that ultra-durable bike frames and designs are so
appealing that customers will be interested to pay extra bucks. Do you
know that customers can even send their own measurements and the company can
print it out? Each frame takes
 almost 10 hours to build. In fact, the company says
that it can produce up to 250,000 combinations!

CEO Sony Vu said: “There’s no glue, no joints, no seams or
anything like that. And so you get a lot more strength. To be completely honest
with you, we’re literally building the bike as we’re riding it. There’s
something exceptional about that.”

Regarding the supply
and partnership with big companies he said: “Rather than knocking on the doors of these big bike companies and
begging them to make stuff for them, screw that. Let’s just ship a product that
people love. And if the big bike companies want us to make carbon fiber frames
for them? We’ll totally do it.”
