Currie Technologies' eFlow E3 Nitro

SIMI VALLEY, CA (BRAIN) — Currie Technologies' eFlow E3 Nitro electric bike has been selected as one of the 10 finalists in the Last Gadget Standing competition. The winner will be selected at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next month.

The eFlow E3 Nitro is the first model in Currie's new eFlow line of electric bikes. The design features a high-capacity Samsung lithium-ion battery pack integrated into the seatpost. The design eliminates the need for additional racks or attachments to hold a battery and enables convenient charging in or away from the bike.

The eFlow is designed for a performance ride, including an RST monoshock, a 20-speed drivetrain, internal cable routing for a clean look, and Auriga E-Sub brakes, which have electronic sensors to cut power to the motor and activate regenerative braking.

"The Nitro is a high-end, extremely fast, powerful, and nimble handling bike," said Currie CEO Larry Pizzi. 

The Last Gadget Standing event takes place Thursday, January 10 at 10:30 a.m. at CES, the world's largest technology-related trade show.
