Dustin: All right, everyone. I'm here with Peter today.
Pete: Hey guys.
Dustin: I'm Dustin, CEO of Sixthreezero. Combined, we've got 45 years of experience in the bike and e-bike industry. And today we're going to answer the question, how long does it take to stop your e-bike if you're traveling at 20 miles an hour? So Pete here is all suited up with this helmet.
Pete: I have on my crash helmet.
Dustin: He's going to get on and we got a runway right here. We have a finish line with a tape measure. Pete is going to go down to the starting line. He's going to work up to 20, hit the brakes, and we're going to see how many feet it takes till he comes to a complete stop.
Pete: All right. Safety goggles too.
Dustin: Pete, are you ready?
Pete: I always do my own stunts.
Dustin: Now just remember, this is an extreme scenario. But he's going to show you the stopping power of the Sixthreezero EVRYJourney. E-bike with disc brakes. He's coming in now. Let's watch.
Pete: We got 22 miles an hour.
Dustin: Okay, at 22 miles an hour. Do not move. Do not move.
Dustin: At 22 miles an hour, the tip of the tire came out to be 272 inches, which is 22 and a half feet. Now, can you run it back one more time?
Dustin: And go 20 miles an hour. We'll see where you stop. Okay. So in the first round he went a little too fast. Still has good stopping power, but we're going to dial it in now to 20 miles an hour. See how long it takes him to stop. All right, Pete, let it rip.
Pete: That's 20. 20 miles an hour right here.
Dustin: Okay. Hold her there. 20 miles an hour. 18 feet. Okay, now let's decrease our distance, and let's run it back. And let's try 15 miles an hour. Short runway. Okay. 15 miles an hour, 15-1/2 feet. And let's just do one last round. Give us 10 miles an hour.
Pete: Okay, here we go.
Dustin: 10. Wow. All right. 10 miles an hour, 7-1/2 feet. All right. There we have. Just showed you the stopping distances on a 500-watt e-bike, specifically the Sixthreezero EVRYJourney 500-watt e-bike, when you're going at 10, 15, 20, and 22 miles an hour. How'd you feel about the stopping power? Felt good? Felt safe?
Pete: I felt it was good. I actually wouldn't have wanted to stop any faster because I may have gone over the front.
Dustin: That is something to consider, is that slamming on the brakes is not going to be a great thing in most scenarios. But Pete, hard pressure, that's how quick you can stop.
