Big Cat Electric Bikes
Big Cat Electric offers you simply the best electric bikes on the market. We have employed our wide industry experience, analytical background, and intensive research to find the ideal manufacturer partner, and then have worked with them to produce a range of bikes we believe will meet your needs.
We started from a clean sheet, without preconceptions, and talked to over fifty manufacturers. We wanted a range of bikes built on the foundations of quality control, design, and leading edge technology.
Quality Control – having worked within the fledgling electric bike industry in the UK, we were dissatisfied with the production consistency and the shelf life of some key components of bikes factory-manufactured in bulk in China or in some parts of Eastern Europe.
Design – here we required satisfaction in three areas – technical design, ergonomics and aesthetics. Paramount was technical design – we needed to understand, and to be able to challenge, the selection of components and the overall marriage of all the component parts. The bikes had to be comfortable for European sized riders on European roads and tracks. We also wanted bikes that ‘looked the part’ – that we and our clients could be proud to own and be seen with.
Technology – many providers of electric bikes in the UK simply do not fully understand in depth how their product works. It was not sufficient for us to take on trust that the controller, the bike’s onboard computer brain, was efficient and provided the optimal ride. We needed to be satisfied that the battery management system, another little computer, would promptly and consistently provide the power needed and yet would behave so as to maximise the life of the battery cells. We needed a partner who really understood the technologies and could prove to us that their product was fully researched and developed while embodying the latest innovations in technology and design.
We have chosen bikes which are hand-assembled in Western Europe. While this means our bikes will never be as cheap as bikes utilising lower labour costs, we are still cost effective compared to German manufacturers and have the huge advantage of European quality control and standards of finish. The end result is a quality bike which will perform well and be trouble-free, and so service our community of cheerful
