If you have been waiting to hear what’s new from BionX in 2011 then today is your lucky day.
It’s also your lucky day if you’ve been dreaming of a BionX recumbent, BionX road bike, or any other BionX bike with a difficult handlebar mounting situation. Now you don’t have to do all that jerry-rigging to get a BionX kit fitted onto your bike. BionX has redefined their game, taking their high-tech electric conversion kit to the next level.
What exactly did BionX change?
Well first off, do you see that nice roomy display? Notice how the new BionX console is not all cramped up with buttons? That’s the first improvement BionX made, and a big one at that. Looks a bit like a smart phone, no? Sure, they’re not interactive touch screens with GPS and 4G internet… but they are now waterproof with easy to access corner buttons (even when your hands are shoved in big mittens)! Those Canadians, they know what’s up.
And if the display wasn’t enough BionX‘s new throttle pushes it all over the edge. The new throttle is a small ring with 3 buttons: a trigger throttle, plus (add assist) key, and minus (decrease assist) key. It is designed and sized to slip into all those tricky, tight places that the original BionX console would never dream of fitting. Trigger shift and drop bar owners have permission to jump from their chairs and dance, we understand.
Not only does this new BionX console make the BionX kit more flexible over all, allowing conversions of all kinds of weird setups, it is much more discreet. Contrast the bulky plastic console of yore with this modern piece of techy gadgetry. This new BionX console on its own looks much like an advanced GPS unit or cyclo-computer while the throttle ring, quietly placed almost anywhere on the handlebar, blends right in with the shift and brake levers.
And to top it all off…
We are the first to have these new BionX consoles and throttles available in the USA!
Good thing you’re staying up late reading our blog, huh? Shameless self promotion I know, but as I see it, this new addition to the line BionX electric conversion kits, along with their new rack mounted battery, will go a long way to streamlining the whole design. I think the sleeker look will make a lot of people very happy.
Not being a BionX bike rider myself I’d love to hear how some of our customers feel about the upgrade. What do you think? Is there something BionX missed or did they pretty much cover it?
