The Concept 3 is an electric cycle which can be built as a 1500w 55lb commuter or a 75lb 7000w off road missile, and anything in between.  At the core of the product is an American Made full suspension carbon spar frame and swingarm with removable battery enclosure.  Designed with modular connection points, the Concept 3 frame can be ordered with geometry specific to off road riding, road riding, trail riding, commuting or purpose built to the users needs.  The Concept 3 is available with either mid drive or hub drive integration and also includes future proof connection points allowing upgrades as technology improves.  It is not simply enough for a frame to handle the power and carry the energy it must be ergonomically designed for its intended purpose, so the Concept 3 offers a traditional bicycle saddle with a wide range of height adjustment or a moto style saddle with limited height adjustment. 

Alterna Cycles Concept 3 is an electric cycle without compromise.
