The advancements in electric powertrain technology, modern composites, and adaptive manufacturing have recently unlocked new possibilities in the bicycling realm, as thoroughly evidenced by Arevo’s wildly-cutting-edge Superstrata Bike.

The Superstrata is built around an ultra-lightweight unibody frame that’s constructed entirely from 3D-printed continuous carbon fiber. Free of any joints, welds, glue, or seams and boasting true unibody construction, this industrial-grade carbon chassis is a whopping 60-times stronger than steel, 15-times stronger than titanium, and even 50% stronger than Kevlar. The advanced frame — which is offered in a myriad of sizes — is paired with top-of-the-line Shimano componentry and packs integrated LED lighting front and aft. In addition to the regular C-spec Superstrata, the California-based startup is also offering a pedal-assist Superstrata E that features a beautifully-integrated motor and 125Wh battery that allows for speeds of 20mph and 60 miles of assisted riding and can take a full recharge in two hours. On top of two different carbon fiber wheel designs, Arevo is also offering numerous optional add-ons including integrated GPS units, charging ports, trip recorders, antitheft devices, power sensors, and motor upgrades. The Arevo Superstrata C is available now for preorder for $2,799 while the Arevo Superstrata E starts at $3,999.
