It’s not legal on British roads, it costs £3,000 and you have to order it from Switzerland, but the Stealth Fighter electric bicycle is a strong contender for title of world’s ultimate off-road e-bike.
The Stealth Fighter has one gear for pedalling without electric power and another for pedalling with the motor at higher speeds.
A quieter electric bicycle
By doing away with a chain drive the makers of the Stealth electric bicycle claim that their design makes less noise than a conventional bike running on slick tyres.
A rear wheel hub-mounted electric motor does away with the need for a derailleur or chain tensioner and means the bike, unlike chain-driven machines, is almost entirely silent.
