The Velocity Steps E8000 is our newest model to enter the Orbit range.

Built using a lightweight aluminium frame, the tandem uses the Shimano Steps E8000 250W motor and a 504 Wh battery.

Battery weighs 2.6kg, and takes 4 hours for a full charge, however, it is 80% charged after the initial 2 hours.

Range of course depends upon rider weight, wind, tyre selection & altitude gain, but it can be as much as 70 miles per charge.

The 250W motor is the highest output system that is road legal in the UK, giving up to 70Nm of torque. The E8000 is the top end system Shimano produce and has the greatest amount of torque of all of their systems which makes it very suitable for tandem use.

This type of electric assist is called a mid-drive system, the engine runs through the gears, and correct use of the gears when climbing make the system really efficient, and allows a light weight motor to be used whilst still giving out a great amount of torque, which is needed for pedalling up the hills.

Built in North Yorkshire, and finished with top quality components from Shimano the Steps E8000 is designed for couples who want a high performance electric assist tandem.

Shimano gearing and G6000 wheels give this tandem a really superb feel.

Disc brake front fork with corresponding disc brake & 203mm rotor now included as standard on this model

Wheels size 700c.

48-spoke wheels, recommended for teams & luggage with over 160kg combined weight, are available using our Orbit hubs.
