After our successful test on the Playa 2015 -2016 -2017-2018 we introduce you to our new high end Playa models : Orbiter, Desert, Voyager. Our economy models are : Playa Stealth, Hopman and Playa Journey/ Journey pro. For those of you buying an eBike for the first time and not sure what are the difference in models... We do not compromise on our motors, motor controllers or battery quality/safety, whats changing are the features and some of the mechanical parts such as : Frame, motors rated volts/watts output, frame design, saddles, pedals, cushions, grips, suspension. On connectivity the difference is full matrix lcd display or simple led indicator display.
Explore the playa desert like never before. For the first time you very well might be able to say: I saw it all! We did. How amazing it is to not worry about forgetting something in your RV, or need to go ;), now your RV will always quick and easy to reach. Even those mid-day rides are pleasant and fun. We even tested it through a sand storm, no problem but make sure you have full protection gear or be ready for a lot of cleaning. When gears get covered with dust it can make your chain fall off.
Few important points:
1) Diameter of the playa is 1.5 miles on the longest point between 3 to 9. Our bikes do easily 20 miles per charge with 1 person load of up to 165 lbs, (they can carry up to 280 lbs but range will be lower), meaning you can cross the playa easily 20 times before running out of battery. Pretty much you will be good all day and when you rest up, you can charge the bike. Charging takes 4 hours and you good to go on your next trip. With that being said, the bike range can vary based on weight of the persons and the riding environment.
2) Our high-end models have usb port to charge you phone or other devices, altho there is no reception on the playa, we are sure you want your camera charged.
3) All our bikes come with built-in headlights, tail-lights and a loud horn to warn those playa dreamers that are just walking around ;)
4) Our playa bikes come with a playa backpack that includes a tools kit, the charger, a user manual & assembly instructions.
5) Remember its really important to keep the tires fully inflated when riding off-road, its helps the tires to better resist thorns, last thing we need is having a flat tire in mid playa when you have so many things to see. We recommend our clients to monitor the tires air pressure as they ride. This is because usually in the last days of the festival the ground structure getting bumpy as more people come in and drive.
6) Keep your charger in safe location so no one will step or kick it by mistake! Keep the charger make sure your charging port is covered from any dust that might cause damage to the connections.As we know it might suddenly rain so make sure you are not charging your bike in the rain, unplug the charger when its done charging.

Cleaning your e-bike after Playa BM festival
Since playa dust has a lot of alkaline (opposite of acidic but just as corrosive), it is important to properly clean your e-bike immediately after the festival. The best way to clean it is using vinegar water. Mix water and white vinegar (50/50) in a spray bottle (buy at Walmart for $2) and just go all over the bike with a soak cloth, cleaning one part at a time. The motor, controller and batteries are sealed so no worries about these parts. Remember if you are leaving your bike in storage its best to leave battery 50% charged and make sure to charge it for 1-2h every 2 month to keep battery life at its best otherwise battery can go into dormant mode.
