company stated that Calamus One represents a giant leap for e-bike technology.
So much, that it creates a whole new class of e-bike – the ultrabike. Powered
by Ultra-drive mid-motors from Bafang, and driven by carbon belts from Gates,
these bikes are ultra-responsive. They’re also ultra-efficient. The Calamus One
gives you up to 70kms of range on a single charge, has a detachable battery and
an integrated weather-proof computer and navigation touchscreen, the One is the
only e-bike to offer integrated support for android apps, rider profiles and
real-time self-diagnosis. It’s also the first bike equipped with ultrasonic
sensors that scan your blind-spots, and handle-grips that vibrate to warn you
about approaching vehicles. Utra-bike frames are custom-casted unibodies with
100% internal cabling. This gives the One a bespoke look, with sleek unbroken
body contours. Add to this, the premium automotive-grade paint job, and you’ve
got an all-round masterpiece with elite road presence.
bike frame, handlebar is crafted from 6000 series aircraft grade aluminium with
automotive grade paint. The handlebar is also a one-piece stem and handle
design as opposed to conventional separate stem and separate handlebar design.
The unibody design also is attributed by the single contour that flows from the
top tube to the rear wheel.
removable battery is also integrated into the down tube of the frame to give
the uniformity to design.All the cables of the bike - hydraulic brake,
electrical and electronic cables are routed from inside the handlebar and frame
to improve the bike aerodynamics, reduce clutter and at the same time make the
whole bike weatherproof.
handlebar edges house LED safety white lights which also double as turn
indicators at the push of a button. The turn indicators activate in the form of
a rhythmic circular ring to give it a beautiful touch. A 4” TFT LCD Capacitive
touchscreen display is where all the communication takes place between the bike
and the rider.
It displays all the important data pertaining
to: Performance of the bike – Speed, Battery level, range, Distance to
empty, Mode - Sport, Eco, Manual, Trip,
Battery temperature, Motor temperature and
Sensor status. Other data include Time, Weather, Blindspot assist, as
well as Phone-based ones that include Navigation,
Music, Call notifications and Push
notifications. Health Data includes Workout mode, Calories burnt and Distance
cycled. The screen is accessed by touch when the bike is stationary and by a
specially designed ergonomic remote accessed by the left hand while in motion
to always keep both hands planted on the handlebar.
