Wave eBike Features

Top of the line specs at the lowest price ever.

The Wave eBike offers a comfortable and stylish designed packed with features you’d expect to find in electric bikes costing $2,000 to $3,000.

Any place, any time.

Want to get from point A to point B? Now you can get there in style…and you won’t be exhausted when you get there. Or just cruise for over 52 miles without a destination in mind! Riding the Wave eBike, you can transport yourself with ease around the city, to the beach, work, and to anywhere your heart desires. The Wave eBike can tackle sand, grass, dirt, or pavement. It’s a full-package, sustainable transportation solution!

Powerful Hub Motor

Long Lasting Battery

The Wave eBike comes standard with a 48-volt 750-watt hub motor, which means no maintenance, no issues, and a bike that propels you at speeds up to 28 mph. The Wave eBike offers hill climbing like no other! Equipped with a 12-Amp hour (Ah) battery, you’ll be riding for 50% longer than on the vast majority of electric bikes. Our tests have reached ranges of over 52 miles on a single charge with pedal assist!

Lowest Price EVER!

100% Street Legal

We encourage you to shop around for other eBikes just to prove how drastically low we are pricing our Wave eBike. Even with a go-to-market MSRP of $999 you will have a really hard time finding anything else priced this low and definitely not with the top speed and range that the Wave eBike offers. With no type of license required, our Wave eBike allows you to ride freely wherever you live, confident that you’re in compliance with all the rules of the road. (The one exception is New York, where electric bikes and scooters aren’t street legal, but even there, you can still enjoy the Wave at your local park or on biking trails).

All Purpose

Fully-Electric/Pedal/Hybrid

The Wave eBike was designed around the concept of a typical beach cruiser, with added comfort and durability (not to mention the battery and motor to make it an electric bike). With fully cross-functional tires, the Wave eBike allows you to ride through the city, along the beach, and everywhere in between. No matter what your mood may be, the Wave eBike can tackle the terrain of your choice. Sit back and relax with the twist of the throttle and cruise on the fully electric motor, or pedal on your own as you would with a classic bicycle. For maximum range, use hybrid mode by pedaling while using the electric motor.

What people are saying…

“The bike looks really good. Especially for the price. I really hope that you guys crush it!”

Greg F., Manager, ElectricBikeAction.com

“Sounds like a great bike!”

Gina P., Writer, Mashable.com

“I’m excited about the Wave eBike. This looks like an extremely promising means of urban and suburban transportation that would also be of use to outdoorsmen types looking for an alternative means of moving across large distances and among unpredictable obstacles.”

Phil E., Publisher, TheMartialist.com

VIDEO

26.95 Miles Video Proof

Claiming the Wave eBike can go 26 miles on fully electric mode without ever having to pedal is easy to say, but we wanted to prove it. To do that, we recorded a full electric roundtrip ride from Manhattan Beach, California to Santa Monica. Watch the video for yourself and see just how far the Wave eBike can really go!

28+ MPH Video Proof

Top speed is an important factor in evaluating an electric bicycle. We proved how far the Wave would go, but we also wanted to prove how fast it would get you there. The Wave eBike does 28 MPH effortlessly and even goes 29-30 MPH for short bursts!

Sure 28 mph (45 km/hr) seems pretty fast, and it is for a bicycle, but the real benefit is the efficiency of riding at a more moderate 20 mph. Electric bikes like the Wave are most efficient when used at roughly 80% of maximum power. Typical competitors’ e-bikes have maximum speeds of around 20 mph, which means that they are most efficient at maybe 16 mph. Riding them at 100% power output (20 mph) drains their batteries quickly. The Wave e-Bike is most efficient when ridden at 20 mph, which is the perfect speed to cruise all day long.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

GENERAL

Q. How is your eBike so cheap? How is the quality?
A. With many, many years of manufacturing and procurement experience we have worked with multiple manufacturing companies overseas to provide high quality parts at a very steep discount, but only if we order in bulk quantities. We made sure not to sacrifice quality in designing and building the Wave eBike. In the process, we successfully developed the world’s most affordable eBike ever.

Q. Is the Wave eBike just meant for cruising along the beach?
A. No, absolutely not. The Wave eBike was inspired by beach-goers, which means it has comfort in mind, but it does not sacrifice performance or stability in any way. The Wave eBike is perfect for every day commuting or for joy riding in neighborhoods, parks, main streets, bike paths, and anywhere you can imagine riding.

Q. How is the Wave eBike made?
A. With years of sourcing and procurement experience we have worked with multiple suppliers throughout the world to negotiate the best possible pricing on each part to the Wave eBike which allows us to offer a very, very low-priced eBike without sacrificing quality.

Q. What is the maximum rider weight limit?
A. We tested the Wave eBike with riders up to 255 pounds with no problems. Maximum recommended weight is 300 pounds.

Q. What are the minimum & maximum rider heights?
A. There are no absolute minimums or maximums, but comfortably speaking the seat adjusts to allow for riders between 4’11” and 6’7″. The seat extends 8″ which puts the seat 41 inches above the ground. The minimum seat height is 33 inches from the ground.

Q. How much does the Wave eBike weigh?
A. Approximately 50 Lbs (22.7 Kg) without the battery.

Q. Does the Wave eBike come assembled?
A. You will receive your new Wave eBike 90% assembled. All you will need to do is twist and tighten the handlebars, tighten the front wheel, plug in the seat and pedals and tighten. The shipping container would be much larger (think of the handlebars and pedals in place) with 100% assembly, so shipping the eBike only 90% assembled allows us to cut costs and pass the savings to you.

Q. Does the Wave eBike come with fenders??
A. Yes. The Wave eBike comes with color matching fenders for the front and rear wheels so you can ride over wet surfaces without worrying about getting wet from tire spray. You can easily remove both fenders by removing a couple of screws. We have included photos here of the Wave eBike with and without fenders so you can get an idea of the look in both situations.

PERFORMANCE

Q. How fast does the Wave eBike really go?
A. Pretty fast. 30 mph with pedal assist or 28 mph on fully electric mode.

Q. How do I know when to head back home before losing battery power?
A. Simple. With an included LED display on the handlebars, you’ll know exactly how much power your Wave eBike battery has left at any given point. When the LED display shows that you have 50% battery life remaining it’s time to head back home. And even if you do run out of battery power, the Wave eBike is still a bike! You can pedal home even without the motor running.

Q. How far can I go on a full battery charge?
A. Far, really far. Over 52 miles, in fact, with pedal assist, and over 26 miles on electric mode alone. With a fully charged battery, you will be able to cruise distances unlike you’ve ever cruised before. While most people probably won’t need to go 52+ miles in a single session, this just means that you’ll be able to use your Wave eBike on normal short-medium distance trips several times before you need to re-charge it back up again.

Q. Does the Wave eBike climb up steep hills?
A. Absolutely. We have ridden many eBikes that struggled climbing most hills and that was one of our biggest pet peeves. We made sure to design a motor strong enough to climb almost any hill on fully electric mode. Our 750-watt motor is more than double the wattage of typical eBikes and is the feature of the eBike motor that determines acceleration and power to climb hills. Why ride a 350W or 500W eBike when you can get a 750W Wave eBike at a lower price than those lesser performing electric bikes?

Q. How does the Wave eBike handle on sand, grass, or dirt?
A. Amazingly. We made sure to prove that this electric beach cruiser could actually cruise on a beach, so we tested it on the sand with amazing results. Grass and dirt are no problem either and make riding the Wave eBike so much more fun.

Q. How long does it take to go from a dead stop to top speed?
A. Depending on the rider’s weight, it usually takes about 15-20 seconds to reach the top speed of 28 mph, but only about 7-9 seconds to reach 20 mph.

Q. How often do I need to replace the brakes and/or tires?
A. The great thing about the Wave eBike is that the brakes and tires last just as long as any other similar cruiser or bicycle. It really comes down to how often you use your Wave eBike (and the type of use).

Q. How long does the battery last?
A. Our tests show that a fully charged battery can last up to 3 hours on a single charge. This is based on a slower speed, but if your goal is to cruise as long as possible then this is the best option. If your goal is to travel as far as possible our tests we have found that the battery is most efficient (longest distance traveled) at 80% power and you will be able to go 52+ miles with pedal assist or 28+ miles on electric motor alone.

Q. How long does it take to charge the battery?
A. 5-6 hours when completely dead with the standard Wave eBike battery charger. Upgrade to our fast charging battery charger and charge your Wave eBike battery in 2-3 hours.

Q. What are the battery specifications?
A. 48 Volt 12Ah Lithium-Ion battery with long distance in mind. With the ability to be charged hundreds and hundreds of times without noticeable loss in max capacity, the Wave e-Bike battery lasts a really, really long time. With no memory effect, you can don’t have to wait until the battery is completely dead to charge it and you don’t have to charge it fully either.
Full Electric Range: Over 26 miles (depending on rider weight)
Hybrid Pedal/Electric Range: Over 52 miles (depending on rider weight)

FEATURES

Q. What are the motor specs?
A. 48V 750 Watts. Voltage generally is used to determine top speed. 48V equates to a top speed of 28 mph. Wattage generally is used to determine the power to accelerate, bear additional weight loads, and hill climbing ability. 750 Watts equates to a quick acceleration, ability to support riders or a total weight well over 250 pounds, and the ability to climb steep inclined hills without having to pedal (we tested no problem up 14% grade inclines).

Q. What happens if I get a flat tire?
A. The same as any other bicycle. You can replace the inner tube, patch it, or use a self sealing inflator like “Fix-a-Flat”. We recommend changing the inner tube for best results.

Q. Is this a single speed bicycle or does it have gears?
A. Single speed.

LEGAL

Q. Where can the Wave eBike be used in the USA?
A. As far as we know, only New York and New York City disallow electric bikes and scooters. Please do be sure to check your local laws to stay street legal, though.

Q. Do I need a special permit or license?
A. The short answer is no. There is no special license or permit required to operate or own an electric bike, but certain cities like NYC do not allow electric bikes altogether, so it is best for you to check with your local authority regarding safe and legal operation of e-bikes.

Q. Do I need any safety equipment?
A. Check your local laws for helmet regulations and other safety requirements. We strongly recommend that you wear a helmet when riding the Wave eBike.

PAYMENT & SHIPPING

Q. How fast is the shipping?
A. We are doing our best to get our backers their Wave eBikes as quickly as possible. Right now we are targeting to ship all backers their eBike this Summer, hopefully by the end of July.

Q. Can I pick-up my Wave eBike locally?
A. Even though we are based in Manhattan Beach, CA, our manufacturing is done overseas, which is why the price is so low. If we get enough local orders, we may be able to offer local pick-up, but we will keep you posted. Stay tuned.

CUSTOMER SUPPORT

Q. What about replacement parts?
A. A successful campaign means a long-lasting business with ongoing development and support. We plan on offering replacement parts, but even better is the fact that tires, tubes, pedals, and many other parts can be purchased at your local bike shop.

Q. How do you handle refunds?
A. Things happen, we get it and we will do everything we can to be fair and just. Indiegogo stipulates in their Terms that all contributions are non-refundable, but upon successful completion of our campaign we work one-on-one with backers to determine appropriate refunds if applicable.

It’s the people that make us succeed. With over 25 years of combined business and manufacturing experience, the Wave eBike team includes a business guru with a Ph.D. in Industrial/Organizational Psychology along with a manufacturing and marketing genius.

Aaron Brady, Ph.D / CEO
Organizational Psychologist & Business Guru
Justin Bransmit / Co-Founder
Manufacturing & Marketing Genius

Aaron grew up in the MidWest, but with a passion for surfing and the outdoors he took a trip across the country and established himself in sunny southern California. With a Ph.D. in Industrial/Organizational Psychology, Aaron brings a wealth of knowledge and experience developing organizations through strategic insight and people processes. As an entrepreneur and engineer at heart, Aaron joined and developed a multitude of start-up companies over the past decade and knows how to develop and launch a successful concept or product from the ground up.

With a passion for motorized vehicles, Aaron decided to get his pilot’s license a few years back. While perusing the Los Angeles coastline he noticed a staggering number of people enjoying the beautiful coastline on their bicycles. So he thought, why not make an already enjoyable hobby of bike riding even more enjoyable AND efficient? The problem was that so many electric bikes are very expensive, at least for the desired specs. So, Aaron spent countless hours working with dozens of manufacturers throughout the world to develop an affordable electric bike capable of an amazing top speed and outstanding range. That’s how the Wave eBike came about!
