The Beast is Daymak’s new heavy duty electric bicycle

Daymak did dive into the world of a greener and more powerful bicycle in the past with their Shadow Ebike three years back, where that particular ride could actually charge up power hungry devices on the go. Well, this time around, Daymak is concentrating on something totally different – calling it The Beast, which is also the nickname for the ride that the President of the United States of America goes around in. The Beast is touted to be a labor of love two years in the making, where it comes fitted with 8-inch thick tires as well as a solar power battery pack, allowing it to let the rider go through sun-fueled expeditions across the roughest of terrain without missing a beat.

Since the release of its groundbreaking wireless Shadow Ebike in 2011, Canadian electric vehicle company Daymak has been toiling away looking to take its eco-friendly bike tech beyond the asphalt. The Beast is a product of around two years of development and, fitted with 8-inch thick tires and solar power battery pack, is equipped to power sun-fueled expeditions over the roughest of terrain. Resembling something brawnier than a scooter yet not quite a chopper motorcycle, the Beast cuts something of an unusual figure. Inverted suspension forks hold the first of the 10-inch alloy rims and bear a 4,500 lumen LED headlight on the front. The alloy frame sits atop two 19.7-inch off-road tires, measuring 3.75 ft (1.1 m) from end to end, with a height of 6.3 ft (1.92 m) and weight of 55 kg (121 lb). It features 15 W-hr solar panels which complement power from the grid by channeling energy to the 60-V 12-AH lithium battery with continuous trickle charging. While one full charge is good for an electric range of 40 km (24 mi), Daymak says that the solar panels can deliver 10 km (6.2 mi) of range for every eight hours they are exposed to ambient sunlight. This means that plugging the Beast into the outlet could be something of a rarity for those traveling only short distances.
