Storm Sondors is a humble man with much success in his life that not many know about… Storm lives a simple life, enjoys the outdoors, the ocean, traveling but an off the grid in a sense lifestyle. Not much for computers or cell phones…just the great outdoors.
Storm envisioned the bike after he suffered an accident that temporarily limited his mobility that affected his outdoors/ beach way of life.
Being an avid surfer since he was a child, Storm still finds the time to surf regularly. During the period of his immobility, Storm needed a way to get down to the beach without complicating his injury. As it turns out, Storm’s professional background includes industrial design and lived in Hong Kong for years.
Did you know, many of those little McDonald's toys that you used to get in your Happy Meal were designed and prototyped by Storm for years
Storm developed the idea of the eBike to get him back to the ocean and into the water by sourcing the needed items to make it for himself through his extensive network of manufacturers in Asia and throughout the world.
With a name like Storm Sondors, it only seemed right to name the bike after him.

10.Is there a rear-splash guard option Is there a back-tire rack option
That option is currently not available through us. This bike has standard frame qualities making it easy to modify with aftermarket products, including splash guards and rear racks.
11.Is there speed monitoring/digital display on the bike
There is no built-in digital display/speedometer, but the bike will work with any aftermarket speed monitors.
12.Is there a key/interlock to prevent accidental starting
There is no interlock currently. However the throttle will not start until one presses a button to activate the motor.
13.Will a standard U-Lock fit around the wider frame
This varies depending on the type of lock, and the type of U-Lock that you use, but in general it will work with most consumer bike locks. Remember that the center portion of the frame is utilized for the battery compartment so all frame related locking would be through the back wheel and frame which is ideal in most cases.
