Seago’s ePower Bike is now back in stock at Pirates Cave Chandlery! New for 2018, the bike features new front shock absorbers and change in the frame at the rear.
Seago’s 2018 ePower bike has ergonomic padded saddle, comfy handlebars and front shock absorbers, so you can travel in comfort. This comfort is further added to by Seago’s ‘Pedal Assist’. This fantastic feature has five different levels, makes uphill cycling a breeze and can help propel you to speeds of up to 25kmh, all whilst you put significantly less effort in. Gone are the days of turning up to work sweaty and tired after your commute!
Folding down to just 27 inches and weighing just 22kg, Seago’s ePower bike is small and light enough to take on buses and trains. With the ability to fold or unfold the bike in under 2 minutes, you’ll quickly be able to carry on with your journey.
The new, fast charging 36v 10AH Samsung Lithium Ion Battery can power the bike up to 60km, making range anxiety a thing of the past. Built into the frame and only accessible with a key, you will not have to worry about the battery being stolen whilst you leave your bike locked up in public. A battery status indicator enables you to see how much charge you have left.
Costing just a few pence to charge, the cost per mile is just fractions of a penny, making the Seago ePower Bike a cost effective mode of transport.
The bike has three different buttons on the handlebars, making it extremely easy to use. One button is for power, one enables you to switch between five levels of pedal assistance and the third is used when turning the mounted light on and off. It could not be more simple to use! The pedal assist is powerful so may take a little getting used to.
With a maximum speed of 25kmh, you will want to be able to stop! So the electric bike comes equipped with extremely high quality Shimano disc brakes on both the front and back of the bike. Front and back LED lights shine bright at night, making you more visible. The bike is also CE approved (Epac EN15194).

There will also be complimentary food and drink for you to enjoy.
As part of our Christmas open day on the 30th of November, we'll be offering a Flare Amnesty, so if you've got any old flares that need disposing of we can take care of them for you, for FREE. We're disposing the flares with help from Suffolk Marine Safety and only have a limited capacity, so free disposal is limited to customers who spend more than £10 with us. We have allotted disposal of 200 flares, so we'll be allowing a maximum of 10 flares per person, and operating on a first come first serve basis — so be quick!
Suffolk Marine Safety will also be offering discounted inflatable liferaft checks and repairs if you drop them off at our shop on our Event Day, on the 30th of November, from 9am until 9pm.
If you're looking to replace the flares you're leaving with us, we have great prices on flares dated 2021, available on the site and in-store.
The couriers we use won't allow us to ship 'pyrotechnics' by mail so you will have to collect new flares and dispose of old flares in person. If you're interested drop by on the day for some great deals across thousands of items, live liferaft and safety equipment demos, giveaways, and much more!
