Cake has launched a brand new product, a brand new electrical bike powertrain known as “Jante” which it hopes will convey new efficiency ranges to its bikes.
Cake has by no means made any secrets and techniques about its environmentally aware alternative of powertrain. It not often tries to draw back from the truth that its fundamental motivation for utilizing electrical energy is due to zero emissions from the powertrain itself.
In a press launch saying the brand new Jante motor, Cake says it “is devoted to designing and manufacturing essentially the most progressive electrical off-road efficiency bikes on the highest high quality, pushed to encourage and speed up in direction of a zero emission society.
“By consistently pushing the boundaries of know-how with essentially the most optimised options, Cake is rushing up the method of constructing combustion engines a factor of the previous.”
It’s a daring assertion and hardly one which is prone to endear itself to many individuals within the bike neighborhood, however you must admire their honesty and dedication to their perception, which is that battery electrics are the answer for the way forward for mobility.
As for the Jante itself, the brand new motor makes use of new inner everlasting magnet (IPM) motor know-how, supplies will increase in efficiency that means speeds of 100kph (62mph) and extra are achievable for each high- and low-voltage drivetrains, and at-the-wheel torque could be greater than 500Nm, with extra torque additionally obtainable at increased RPMs.
The sturdiness and reliability of the brand new motor advantages from the usage of aircraft-grade aluminium for the motor housing, and a dual-bearing shaft.
Energy supply has additionally been smoothed out, that means higher dealing with at low speeds and extra manageable acceleration, whereas the design itself is light-weight and compact to extend the motor’s versatility.
Cake CEO and founder, Stefan Ytterbrorn, stated: “We’re very excited to introduce our new excessive efficiency Jante Drivetrain. The Jante represents a major development in CAKE’s electrical motor design, offering our clients with a superior product that meets their wants for efficiency, effectivity, and reliability.
“The largest motive for our in-house developed motor is to take main steps ahead, growing efficiency for the class of light-weight electrical bikes. On the coronary heart of our automobiles every little thing relies on CAKE parts that collectively ship efficiency to the subsequent degree.
“We’re comfortable to see our drivetrain know-how being utilized in plenty of daring tasks. CAKE battery controller algorithms and extra are already in different builds, and the brand new Jante is a major addition to our drivetrain know-how.”
