Our beautifully designed bicycle frames are 100% inspired in the french and italian bikes from the late 70s, that was the golden era of cycling, and we are very proud of take that heritage and keep it alive over the years.
For the 2023 eBike versions we go further, with respect to the original geometries we modified slightly some of the parameters to ensure an optimal drive is performed for the use of an electric bike, were more power means, the needs of improved brake response or higher speeds at different body position that mechanic bikes.
We now use CroMo steel frames reinforced while we keep a very light weight, the result is a frame made to last (and repair if needed) over the years.
Forks has been revised too, to ensure the brake power is in line with the flexibility of the entire frame.
For this 2023 production we stay at the 58cm tall for the diamond top tube frame while we keep 46 for the mixte down tube frame, this new 1 size only for each frame will meet more taller people, in line with our average customers requests.
Please let us know if you desire another frame size so we can include on next productions
New Disk Brakes
Dual pivot mechanic disk brakes 160mm
Disc brakes offer better modulation than rim brakes, meaning it’s easier for the rider to precisely meter out how much clamping power is generated. Peak stopping power occurs just before the point of lock-up, and disc-equipped bikes are better equipped to flirt with that edge without crossing over.
Disc brake power also tends to be more linear and predictable than on rim brakes, and it’s far more consistent in varying weather conditions, especially when compared with using rim brakes on carbon rims – a combination that yields notoriously poor performance in the wet, yet is also prone to overheating when dry.
Continental Contact Urban 37-622
Fast rolling with improved comfort and superb puncture protection due to the new Safety Pro casing, giving a safety level of 6, just one point below the resolute CONTACT Plus series, but giving faster rolling performance.
The new SafetyPro breaker designed from Nylon textile.Cross-woven textile fibre netting that is simultaneously robust and flexible. Maximum puncture protection with minimal added weight. The risks of punctures resulting from glass or sharp stones are lowered.
Designed to be fast rolling, without detrimental effect to puncture protection.
Better, faster, stronger.

These give beautifully accurate gear shifts really promote harmony between rider and bike. Simple to manage as your derailleur can be tensioned by preference for greater lever travel or faster changes. You feel more connected with your bike as you feel your way through the gears.
For this 2023 CAPRI Metz & Azur generation we partnered with the amazing Taiwanese company Lasco, founded in 1978 by a group of young cyclists are still a small company doing great products.

New Bike Stand
It may be a not very important part of your bike, but if you really use the bike and bring bags or any kind of extra weight, you may have noticed how important it is, and the quality and endurance of this part affects how you enjoy your bike over the years.
For this 2023 CAPRI eBikes we partnered with the Swiss manufacturer Pletscher, and excellent producer of biek stands with very high quality low weight and nice design.
Another European producer we incorporated to reduce the carbon footprint while improving the quality of our eBikes.
The SunRace R80
The level of precision and finish was the first of a cascade of gradually improving, fully aluminium, models that heroically strove to challenge Ultegra.
On the R80 (R82), SunRace included their distinctive, and pleasantly eccentric, b-pivot adjustment system.

Improved battery technology
Battery plays an important role in the performance of the ebike, so we been working since 2021 on the development of our new version of our patented battery.
The new battery (36V 6,8Ah 248,4Wh) was already delivered on last productions for the previous METZ and AZUR versions since may 2022, so we are happy with the modifications and performance over the time.
The new BMS (Battery management system enables the delivery of targeted range of voltage and current for a duration of time against expected load scenarios.) has been modified to maximize the live of the battery while keeping a good power delivery.
The case is slightly bigger than the 1st generation but has also more resistance to impacts and temperature exposure, equipped with IP6 water resistant connector is ready for any rainy day.
This 2nd generation of our patented battery comes with a high speed charger with a dock station included.
And last but not least, the battery mounts the best in class Li-ion cells from SAMSUNG, one of the most reliable, efficient and high quality cells in the market.
One of our more acclaimed design aspects from our 1st generation ebikes was the compact motor.
it was a great motor, but the new one is better, it may not be as shinny and beautiful, but is much more reliable and efficient.
Now equipped with a BAFANG rear hub brushless motor that delivers 250W has demonstrated is one of the highest quality motors in the market, Bafang is one of the global industry leaders and his motors have a failure rate near to zero.
The electrical system of an ebike, is not only the motor and the battery, there are other elements that need to perform perfectly.
We equipped this last generation of CAPRI eBikes with the best in class motor controller, and we optimized to ensure it delivers the right power to your bike when you need it,
We adjusted the speed management based on our average customers requirements and we split the 5 levels of assistance more balanced, so you get the power you need more quickly and precisely, it really works smoothly.
We also include a new display to control with your fingers easily the levels of assistance you need with no issues, easy and minimal to avoid big unnecessary screens.
We strongly believe on free from apps life, you may use apps for many things in your life, but this has not need to be mandatory if you want to enjoy your bike.

Made with respect
Social responsibility is a must, it includes not only do our best ensuring our bikes are made with components from companies that respects their people and their environments, it's also we need to constantly check and improve all aspects of our daily business and the way we interact with others.
We love to help local communities on other countries to produce some bike accessories, such as wicker baskets from the forests of Indonesia, same as we want to keep local family business alive by ordering small leather accessories here in Spain.
We want to be treated and treat the people with respect in our diversity and be always inclusive and equity.
Direct to consumer, smart to market
Been direct to consumer means not only we reduce the number of intermediates and unnecessary costs, means we do have a direct communication with our customers.
Direct communication has played a key role in the development of our products, we listened and learned from our customers to ensure we create the perfect products for their needs.
Direct Business means also a way to interact more with our users and become a great community, if there are poor quality of service or we need any kind of improvement we hear quick and act, if there are nice comments and beautiful feedbacks we have an immediate dopamine hit.
We love to be near and enjoy this sense of community.
Carbon Neutral eBike product life cycle
From factory to your door, as a Direct to Consumer company we are on fully control of the procurement,, manufacturing and transportation, we analyze product environmental impacts in each life cycle.
The average carbon footprint for our ebike is 200 Kg. Around 75% of CO2 emissions are produced by materials and manufacturing, around 15% during actual use of the eBike, and the remaining 10% or so during transport, packaging and recycling.
We do have a strong commitment to produce our bikes in local, with the nearest possible produced componentes, we are continuously under development to reduce the carbon footprint for every stage of the process.
Our aim is to be a fully Carbon Neutral Company by June 2023 with in place reforestation programs to compensate the carbon footprint we generate.
