  • EBMX-4 Production Update – Upgrades (9/1/2017)

    Hello Life EV Pre-Order customers!

    First of all I want to thank you all for your patience and enthusiasm about the eBMX-4.

    We were scheduled to begin production in August however our R&D team found an issue with our frame design that needed to be corrected. The planned design change will strengthen the frame near the seatpost and is necessary to make the frame a bit more resilient and up to Life EV and Prodecotech quality standards.

    In addition, we’re also using a slightly different look for the mag wheels that house the pTech 300W XF Motor.

    Lastly, we are redesigning the cap that houses the controller and covers the battery pack at the bottom of the downtube. Prodecotech will CNC each cap out of alloy which will facilitate additional cooling versus the plastic version in the additional design.

    These modifications will delay production for at least another 40 days.
    We appreciate the enthusiasm and patience (seriously, thank you) of the EBMX-4 pre-order customers and we regret to keep delaying gratification to such an awesome product. It is a necessity to ensure customer satisfaction and maintain Prodecotech’s reputation as of the leading American electric bike manufacturer.

  • eBMX-4 Battery Redesign (1/29/2018)

    Attention All eBMX-4 Pre-Order customers!

    We’ve taken another huge step to making our electric bmx a reality!

    While our internal battery system is still under development we’re implementing a redesigned version with a stealthy battery mounted within the diamond of the frame. This new battery design will also be used in upcoming Prodecotech Titanio and Scorpion models.

    We are still working on developing the internal battery but there is a substantial amount of time required before production because of FCC certifications needed for the battery and controller.

    eBMX-4 With Diamond-Mounted Battery.

    To accommodate the diamond-mounted battery we will have to extend the head-tube by 1 inch. We are beginning to weld the frames for this battery now!

    Stay tuned for more dates and details, post any questions below or message us on facebook. https://www.facebook.com/LifeEbikes/

  • eBMX-4 Mag Wheels are In! (3/29/2018)

    We just received our redesigned Mag Wheels and there are more on the way.

    We also want to go into more detail about the delays. The Samsung SDI partner we were planning to use for our battery packs has had complications with Samsung after Samsung recently closed their office in Chicago. We now are working with a new supplier using LG cells to manufacturer our battery backs. The new diamond-mounted battery pack is now being finalized and should be ready in 6 weeks. The new frames are set to arrive before the batteries. Here’s a message from Prodecotech CEO, Robert Provost.

    “The battery system for the BMX has been a challenge. We have worked with the Samsung SDI’s Chicago office for the past 4 years with Samsung SDI being a direct supplier to Prodeco Technologies. Over 2 1/2 years ago we started the eBMX battery project via our inhouse R & D Department. The initial designs were developed by our inhouse design team including CAD design. It was recommended by Samsung SDI we partner with one of their seasoned battery pack developers. We did just that and after 7 months, the supplier chosen was not able to complete the project to our specification which required the controller and battery management system to be combined in a single unit with the battery cells. Further development and time was required to pass all certifications including FCC. It was decided to separate the controller to expediate the process and mount the battery in a newly developed water bottle case onto the frame. The new concept which maintained an incognito look had an added benefit many people involved preferred, it allowed for an easy battery swap/replacement where the original design required the rear wheel be removed to replace the battery. Since completing the design, Samsung SDI has placed an EOL (end of life) on the cell chosen 18650-29E1 for this battery and also closed the Chicago office. Not to delay any longer and hold up production as we are now entering the spring season, we decided to remove the Samsung SDI involvement and instead replace the cells with LG Electronics HG1 Lithium Ion cells. The HG1 cell is considered best in class (3200mAh) cell and will allow us to finally complete the battery system for our eBMX. All other components have been finalized. Attached are images of our new motor wheel set. The slight wheel hub revision allowed Prodeco Technologies to install their proven XF Geared Motor system as an upgrade with no additional cost to the riders.”
