The Kimoa e-bike is custom built for each rider thanks to a custom 3D printed carbon fiber frame made by additive manufacturing company Arevo. In 2020 Arevo has launched its own 3D printed e-bike company, Superstrata..

Arevo’s line of 3D printed bikes allows customers to customize them based on height, leg length, arm length and preferred riding posture, allowing for up to 500,000 combinations. Kimoa.

In addition to being lightweight, the frame has a sleek appearance. This is also related to the Arevo method for 3D printing.

“Unlike other carbon fiber bikes, whose frames are glued and bolted together using dozens of individual parts and made from previous generation thermosetting composite materials, the Kimoa bike frame is constructed without joints or glue to provide seamless strength,” Kimoa said in a statement. “Next-generation thermoplastic materials make it extremely impact resistant, surprisingly light and, most importantly, incredibly resilient.”

The Kimoa e-bike has a range of up to 55 miles and can be fully charged in two hours, the company says.

For those who want to personalize their ride even more, the bike comes in road, gravel, commute and cruise styles, as well as a choice of metal or carbon wheel materials, as well as black, white, fluorescent yellow and teal finishes.

Alonso’s bike will be sold online or at SimplyEV and Simply Mac stores across the US for $3,999.
