you can easily ride it, haul it and service it yourself saving time and money. You can even tap yourself on the back for taking a big leap in reducing your carbon footprint and saving our planet.

Although Falcon8K is technically a bicycle, care should be taken when riding it or any other electric motor powered vehicle. You should treat your new transporter with respect, never underestimating its power potential. We advise that new riders always start on the lowest pedal assist mode until they are entirely at ease with the transporters acceleration, braking and maneuverability. This transporter has been built to provide years of fun commute and trail rides, please keep your safety and that of others a priority.
Always use bicycle lanes where available. If none are available you must conform to all traffic laws that apply to other motor powered vehicles.
Always wear an ASTM and CPSC certified helmet when riding. Make sure that the chin strap is attached before your ride and follow the helmet manufactures instructions for proper use and fit. In many Provinces or States the wear of a helmet on e-bikes is mandatory.
Make sure to always wear shoes that have good traction on the pedals or pegs and will stay on your feet at higher speeds.
Squeeze the hand brake levers to ensure there is positive braking action before starting your ride.
We recommend parking on flat surfaces. If however you must park on an incline, make sure to park your transporter perpendicular to the road with the back wheel leaning against the sidewalk, same as motorcycles.
Make sure you are sitting on your e-bike with your hands on the hand grips before engaging the throttle and keep hands on hand grips when riding. Beginners should always start on the lowest power assist mode until familiarized with the Falcon8K.

What our customers think
I was a little skeptical at first that any battery powered bike would provide me with the speed I had gotten used to with my KTM but I must say I am really impressed with the Falcon8k. Ill be back with another review in a few months after I've beaten it a little more :)
North Vancouver, BC
The pictures on the site don't fully convey the imposing stature of this e-bike. I was surprised to see how thick and sturdy it is. Also quiet heavy. Feels much more like a motorcycle than a mountain bike. With such powerful acceleration I guess it has to be built tough. I'm very impressed.
This is my first ever e-bike and I am trying to learn how to run before learning to walk. It is a lot of bike to handle. Luckily I can choose the level of pedal assist. Looking forward to unleashing this beast once I'm more at ease with it.
Jean Phillip Gagnon
I was debating between the Falcon8K e-bike and e-motocross but chose the later and am happy with my purchase. The seat seemed more comfortable and the fat tires really make a difference on the trails. I would probably ask that they add rear brake lights on future models though but i guess it can be done aftermarket if necessary.
Been riding my Falcon8K for a few weeks and I am very impressed with the performance and workmanship of the e-bike. Only problem I'm foreseeing is that my buddy's won't be able to keep up with me with their traditional mountain bikes. Will probably hold on to my old bike for treks with the boys.
I'm new to Destin and don't know where the best trails are yet but been riding mine on stretches of rough beaches in my area. It's a lot of fun. This thing has mad torque it's scary.
