COBOC SOHO Electric Road Bike
The stunning Coboc Soho combines technical ingenuity with head-turning beauty.
The Soho’s beautiful hand-crafted brushed aluminium frame with polished welds is complemented by lightweight silver carbon forks. Added to this is the classical elegance of the Brooks Cambium saddle and bar tape, whilst the Continental Grand Prix Classic tyres ensure the ride is as smooth as the look.
Like its brother the Ecycle, the 250w motor is seamlessly integrated into the rear hub and all electronic components, including the battery, are discreetly concealed within the frame and provide a range of 80km on just a 2 hour charge time. All of this in a package weighing just 13.7kg.
Drop in at our Portobello Road store for a test ride ….we promise you won’t be disappointed!
COBOC stands for timeless design enhanced by the most modern drive technology. The understated elegance of the classic frame construction combines seamlessly with intelligent power electronics and a high torque motor to deliver an agile, dynamic riding experience.
The product of an extraordinarily high level of research and development, COBOCs are all hand crafted in Germany. The electronics, battery and software have been developed by our experienced team over many years and utilise cutting edge methods of motor control and torque sensor technology that have been integrated into a single chip. Such efficiencies have enabled them to produce an electric bike with a weight of just 13.5kg (Ecycle), a level previously unseen in electric bikes.
The electric bike is the urban mobility of the future. A complement to, rather than a replacement of, classic two wheeled transport.
Born out of a passion for two wheels, a love of technology and the highest standards of design and functionality, a COBOC e-bike is unlike anything you’ve ever ridden before. Effortless motion from a light, agile design that delivers an intuitive interaction between rider and bike.
With a design concept centred around aesthetics, function and riding pleasure our aim was to create something very special. Something highly refined. Something completely different…
The 36 spoke wheels are hand built in Germany with the rear housing a 250 Watt brushless motor. Custom switchgear is hidden in a beautifully CNC machined aluminium housing which makes up the first part of the top tube. The only visible cue to the electric status of the bike are five blue LEDs flush with the tubing which indicate battery charge. Even the cabling is internal to maintain the sleek look of the machine.
Rather than using a torque sensor in the rear drop out like most other e-bikes, which need careful calibration each time the rear wheel is reinstalled, COBOC uses a high tech bottom bracket sensor. This means power delivery is not only progressive but also instantaneous and intuitive, a feeling akin to having a constant tailwind as you ride! The whole system self-calibrates every time you recharge, meaning that battery life is maximized and from the first pedal stroke you are always guaranteed peak performance.
The battery pack consists of Panasonic cells (36V / 9.3 Ah) that are assembled on site in Germany. These lightweight batteries are performance optimized using a bespoke 4 layer circuit board and microprocessors that, combined with the torque sensor, deliver an incredible range of up to 80km.
