Arche: Ottawa-Based Thales Motors Launches Indiegogo Campaign for Minimalistic E-Bike

Ottawa, CA – Thales Motors is excited to announce the launch of an Indiegogo campaign for the Arche, a minimalistic electric bike built to be both efficient and effortless. Bicycle enthusiasts on the lookout for an e-bike that’s fast, light, and beautiful can pre-order the Arche on the crowdfunding platform with delivery estimated in April 2019.

“We founded Thales Motors with the belief that transportation is fundamental to individuals living in our modern societies. Transportation is freedom. It provides availability and opportunity to people. Without it, people are stagnant,” said James Best, Founder of Thales Motors, “Our mission is with this belief, how do we provide effective transportation to as many people as possible? How do make the transportation oriented for the future? We answer and solve these questions with our business.”

Thales Motors was founded by James Best, a business and design student from Ottawa, Canada. 

After two years of conceptualizing this company he finally decided to commit to its construction. He has been a bike enthusiast all his life and believes electric power will have to inevitably dominate the transportation industry. Now Best has turned to the crowdfunding community for help bringing his company’s first design to life.

Some notable features of the Arche e-bike include:

• 50km range with 6 adjustable levels of pedal assist

• A 7-speed Shimano gear system that is efficient on any surface

• Powerful ZSTAR disk brakes

• A 350w rear hub motor with free one-year warranty

• Hidden battery and USB port built into the frame

• High contrast KBY-DISP LCD Display

• Puncture resistant Thickslick 700x25c tires

• Weighs only 14.5 kilograms

The Arche e-bike is a great cost-effective travel solution that requires no registration, hidden fees, insurance, or gasoline. The Creator Series package available during this crowdfunding campaign comes with selected tools that ensure the Arche continues to run efficiently into the future – a $100 value for free! At about the size of a water bottle, the CS package allows for quick on the go maintenance and repair. 

“By buying one of the Arche Creator Series e-bikes on INDIEGOGO you are fueling the future ambitions of our company,” Best explained, “Thales Motors was founded with a purpose and a PLAN. We plan to use this revenue to not only develop new e-bike models for the market, but to begin prototyping an electric motorcycle.”

In exchange for pledging to the project, backers can gain access to a variety of rewards including one Arche Creator Series for $899 (62% off the retail price), two Arche e-bikes for $1,599, and more. Backers can also pledge $25 for a USB Rechargeable LED Light or $50 for a Creator Series Repair Kit.
