Vintage Electric develops limited edition e-bike with surf legend Jeff Clark

Published March 2, 2018

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (BRAIN) — Vintage Electric is offering a Jeff Clark e-bike, in association with Clark, the founder of The Titans of Maverick Surf Contest. Only 20 of the bikes will be produced. 

"Surfers have long been associated with their vehicles such as the Woody wagon or Volkswagen bus. Now Jeff Clark's Signature model steps into that spotlight," the company said.

The Vintage Electric Jeff Clark Signature Cruz was inspired by the Mavericks break, embellished with personalization and Pillar Point-ready accessories.

"As a transportation company, Vintage Electric has always appreciated a different way to get around whether it's on land or water," said Scott Brown, CEO of Vintage Electric. "This partnership made total sense. We are a Northern California company, so naturally many of us have surfing close to our hearts. Jeff builds his boards with the same sense we build our bikes — with a vision to be the best and inspire people to ride and feel free, and capable of anything. Our typical consumer is often most interested in high quality products, has a passion for fun and arriving in style. Using a Vintage Electric bike for one's transportation becomes a way of life and with the ability of the new Jeff Clark Signature Cruz to carry a surfboard, our newest limited edition is a serious lifestyle choice."

The bike's 702-watt hour lithium battery delivers power to a throttle-controlled direct drive rear hub motor, topping out at an 36 mph in race mode. It features Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, paired with a regenerative function to send power back into the battery. It also has a Brooks saddle and grips.

It has a removable surf rack wrapped in Brooks leather. A custom rear rack is mounted with removable Blackburn panniers. The hand-finished and laser-etched wooden "tank" wears a custom Jeff Clark-inspired graphics and his signature. It also has Integrated front and rear LED lights and a Spurcycle bell.
