The Ukraine based electric bikes brand Delfast releases the upgraded version of its bestseller – Top 2.0 – called Top 3.0, which is now available online.
So what differs the new model from its forerunner? First of all, Top 3.0 has the new belt carbon drive. According to Delfast Chief Engineer, Serhii Goncharov, the chain is the major weakness of the entire e-bike design. The regular chain’s lifecycle is no longer than few thousands kilometres. Moreover, it requires constant service and troubling maintenance.
The team now offers the single-speed belt construction that no longer has any kind of complications with the transmission. Therefore, with the belt drive a rider can enjoy the longer life cycle and the lack of maintenance and lubrication of the transmission. Plus, the belt drive is lighter than the regular bike chain. The belts drive is the element of the latest most modern bicycle designs.
Thus, the Top 3.0 does not require the service check every 100 km while riding offroad or in the rainy weather. Additionally, this type of transmission is more quiet. The rear pendulum has also been changed, making it possible to adjust the belt tension.
New Top 3.0 also has the headlight with the low and high beam modes, which the rides during the night time much safer, especially at the high speed. The high beam shines bright and far and in the narrow beam. This type of the headlight was added to the model with the account that Delfast e-bike will be used in the cloudy and rainy weather and in any season.
The price of the Top 3.0 electric bike is USD 6 649 with the delivery to the United States, EUR 6 249 to the European Union and USD 6 799 – the rest of the world. There is an Early Bird ordering for those purchasing the Top 3.0 in the beginning of June with the price being around 1 000 (USD/EUR) lower.
The additional good news is that Delfast finally has the worldwide credit financing option by PayPal. Now, everyone can purchase Delfast in credit using PayPal. This is a great option for those outside of the US, while Klarna is only available for those in America. Moreover, Affirm financing starts working this week. In total, Delfast has 3 credit options for the customers to choose from.
