Here’s your chance to own the special-edition electric bike designed exclusively for 2012 Academy Award nominees. We chose to call it the Phantom O in a nod to our most popular series. It was no surprise when Hollywood superstars Brad Pitt, Nick Nolte and Glenn Close and other top film stars quickly accepted our own version of the Oscar. With its matte black-and-gold color scheme, the Phantom O is as stylish as it is powerful, featuring the superior strength and high-end torque of a 500-watt, direct-drive motor mounted in the rear wheel, which delivers 720 watts at peak. Riders rave about the elite components and adjustability of this unique bike, starting with the precise engineering of the SRAM drive train consisting of an XO Twist 8-speed shifter and X7 8-speed mid derailleur. There’s also a SRAM S600 crankset which gives you the best combination of looks and performance. Just give a half-twist to the “power-on-demand” propulsion throttle and reach speeds of up to 20 mph. Thanks to the 38-volt, 9-amp hour advanced lithium battery (LiFePO4) the Phantom O has a range of up to 30 miles per charge. Or, if you prefer, pedal as you would on a regular bicycle for routine exercise. The 55-pound Phantom O also boasts a lightweight, aircraft-grade, aluminum alloy folding frame and a shock-minimizing 120-mm ZXR magnesium suspension fork. The responsive Avid BB7 disc brake system along with Avid 180-mm, HS1 heat-shedding rotors are the best in their class. Offering more control, the Avid HS1 will have you riding longer than ever without fear of overheating. Continental Traffic 26-inch tires roll fast on pavement, but also inspire confidence on dirt and gravel trails. The Gyes black leather saddle and leather grips round out the high comfort Phantom O. This elite component package culminates in one remarkable ride that remains truly Oscar-worthy.
