Project BMX is a visionary quest to seamlessly blend electric innovation with authentic BMX geometry, crafting an unparalleled ride experience tailored for cyclists who need a little more cool from their bike. The ethos was to make no sacrifices to the ride feeling or look of traditional BMX - by using a nimble 24” design for agility and fluidity, and stealthy integration of the technology to maintain traditional aesthetics, Project BMX does just that.

RIDES LIKE A BIKE

Many eBikes place their motors and batteries in positions that are easiest and/or cheapest, with little regard to the effects on the rider experience. Frame geometry and weight distribution are pivotal in electric bike design, optimising rider comfort and bike handling. The carefully calculated angles and weight placement on Project BMX lower the centre of gravity, enhancing stability and control, especially at higher speeds or during tight maneuvers. This balance allows for a natural riding posture and facilitates intuitive control, improving the interaction between rider and machine.

KEEPING IT REAL

eBikes can be big, bulky, and a little bit ugly. We’ve painstakingly retained the iconic BMX spirit, seamlessly nestling the battery within the seat and embedding a potent mid-drive motor into the frame. The outcome? A sophisticated, perfectly balanced old-school BMX aesthetic that’s guaranteed to draw attention. Project BMX is crafted with premium Chromoly frame and fork tubing courtesy of TANGE. It’s not just a ride but a robust statement of quality.

Why a Mid-Drive Motor and not a Hub Motor?

Using a mid-mounted motor in Project BMX goes far beyond maintaining aesthetics. These kinds of motors offer substantial benefits over hub drive systems found on other commuter/urban e-bikes. 


The mid-drive allows for optimal weight distribution for handling, a smoother and more natural pedal assist feeling, and eliminates the drawbacks of adding rotational mass to the rear wheel. They are also quieter, and being connected directly to the crank increases the motor’s efficiency to make the most of the bike’s range.


What is the difference between the 250W and 500W Project BMX?

The 500W has a higher power rating allowing the motor to provide more torque, which will result in faster acceleration and better performance. It comes standard with a throttle, and no speed limit, intended for use on private property*.


The 250W is road-compliant with local road rules. This model uses the same motor rated to 750W but uses a 250W firmware which decreases power and torque. It is pedal assist-only (no throttle), and has a 25kph speed limit. Users may choose to add a throttle, which will allow acceleration up to 36kph but no longer be compliant.


*This FAQ is not to be construed as legal advice. Always check your local laws and ordinances to ensure you are in compliance.

 • Motor/Drive system - IPX6 (Protected against high-pressure water stream from any angle.)

 • Display - IP X5 (Protected against low-pressure water stream from any angle)

 • Battery - Sealed

Incredible Bike that I will love forever!

What I love about this bike is that it takes me 'back in the day' to the days when I enjoyed a bmx. The design is such that you don't appreciate that it is an every day e-bike - it is an experience. Thanks so much evolve for taking me back to my childhood! It is a joy every day I use it. The 'hidden' battery is what makes this so true to the BMX days and it is easy to charge and easy to use. I love it!!!
