What Did The Location War Look Like At SXSW? Like This.

While not the first bike to do away with spokes, the Shadow might be the first to see mass production. And its certainly the first to be wireless. Yes, that’s correct. Wireless bicycles.

The Shadow’s designers determined that most eBike malfunctions occur at connection points or due to loose wiring. So hey! Why not just get rid of them? Instead, the braking system, throttle, pedal-assist system are all controlled wirelessly.
