Envo kit turns regular bikes into snow-going ebikes

• New Atlas - Ben Coxworth

Manufactured by Canadian electric mobility company Envo, the kit is designed for use with existing mountain bikes.

At the heart of the setup is the aluminum-bodied bogie unit, which replaces the rear wheel. It incorporates a snowmobile-like lugged rubber/Kevlar tread which runs over a 1,200-watt rear hub-type motor on top, and along the underside of a series of polyethylene rollers on the bottom.

The bike's existing chain delivers the rider's leg power to a sprocket attached to the side of the motor, while a down-tube-mounted 48V/17.5-Ah lithium-ion battery pack provides it with electrical power.
