The Centauro® Your Future Ride
In 2019, I moved to China and I designed, prototyped and developed the Centauro, the one and only ebike that gives you the sensation of being half-human and half-horse.
The Centauro®, originally called Centaur, blends three bicycle categories into a unique vehicle:
- The riding capabilities of a mountain bike with aggressive headset geometry, and suspension on the front and rear wheels.
- The comfort of a step-through city bike
- The versatility of a cargo bike with an extra-wide rear rack and front basket mounts.
The Centauro was designed to be a robust and nimble ebike, with virtually zero maintenance, extra-long range and a load capacity that makes cargo bikes extremely jealous.
The bicycle frame has been tested according to the ISO4210 norm and was successfully approved!
After the first bicycle frame landed in Australia, the Centauro was built and real use tests began.
The rounds of tests included MTB off-roading, commercial urban deliveries, and customers who signed up to participate in this experiment and clocked the longest hours of use you can imagine in their random personal applications.
The feedback was precise and trustworthy, from real avid users, we then decided to tweak the suspension geometry, pedalling ergonomics and the rear rack size and length.
A second prototype model has been manufactured, with important improvements. The frame was tested again for the ISO4210 and exceeded with impressive results!
Now the final results of this journey you can see in our YouTube channel:
Today, as the world normalises its manufacturing capacities, we will start the preorder of the Centauro, producing it in an exclusive special edition version for our first 100 customers.
It’s your chance to grab a bike that will last a lifetime, from beginning to end, serving a wide range of applications and giving you the rights to modify, repair and customise your ebike as you always wanted!
The Centauro is Your Future Ride!
