The entire ethos behind Surface 604 is getting people either riding bikes or riding more. That’s why they’ve designed bikes with electric assist systems, that are fender rack compatible.

The models are utilitarian and affordable. Their build kits include hydraulic disc brakes, 1x transmissions, and their most popular model retails for under $3,000.

Surface 604 is also trying to tackle peoples preconceived notions about what electric bikes can be. Many riders have complained about the weight of these bikes, so they developed a carbon commuter with an integrated battery pack that weighs 33 lb and will retail for $3,799.

Surface 604 Boar E350 Torque Sensor

Power delivery to the motor is regulated by a torque sensor in the dropout hanger that senses how much torque you apply to the pedals; the harder you pedal, the more power the electric motor provides. The result is smooth power delivery and a natural ride much like a regular bike. The torque sensor has the added benefit of acting like a Battery Management System (BMS). The power going to the motor is instantly reduced when you reduce the torque and turns off completely when you stop pedalling. The effect is greatly reduced power consumption, longer range and longer battery life.

Surface 604 Boar E350 Motor

The Boar comes equipped with Bafang’s next generation geared hub motor available in 250w or 350w (depending on local laws governing power ratings). These new motors are incredibly silent compared with anything else on the market, weigh less and are so low-profile it’s hard to tell it’s electric. Geared hub motors have the advantage over direct drive motors in that they deliver high torque and are resistant to overheating when running at lower RPM’s. This is well-suited to carrying heavy loads up hills at slower speeds.

That’s why they founded the company in 2013 with one simple goal: to build the ultimate electric bike – one that everyday people can afford.
