American Outdoors posted a video interview with Sealth Electric Bikes founder John Karabalis and Stealth USA’s director, Darin Brin. This is the only in-person interview with either of these guys I have come across which made it interesting to watch. Also, some very interesting points were made…
1) Stealth Electric Bikes are neither mountain bikes or motorcycles in John and Darin’s eyes. Stealth two wheelers are “creating it’s own class of bike”.
2) When riding downhill, the added weight of the hub motor in the rear wheel gives increased traction and stability when compared to a downhill bicycle.
3) Stealth Electric Bikes are hand made and assembled in Australia under John Karabalis’s supervision. There are no plans to change this or switch to mass production methods.
