An El Solitario collaboration with Cake + Elektrafuture
2021 Cake Kalk OR
When El Solitario was approached by Olivier Lequellec and Vincent Prat, (and their fabulous crew in Saint Tropez!), to develop our own vision over a Cake Electric bike and come and ride with them on The Riviera, we couldn’t say no.
Elektrafuture is not a place or an event. It’s an idea in movement. Elektra is a Greek name meaning “amber” and thus “shinning” or “incandescent”. Like the future of our story together. The perfect way to commemorate a decade of true friendship and an homage to our life on 2 wheels. Its inherent freedom and our very personal way of understanding the planet and humanity.
In the long nights of the 1st Elektrafuture in Oct 2020, under the kaleidoscopic influences of Hoffman and Owsley, El Solitario Commando was born.
Cake revolutionized the lightweight electric off-road motorbike segment helping re-shape the future of riding.
The weight aspect is one. A dramatic reduction in weight, compared to a regular combustion bike, enables snappy and lively rides. The electric drivetrain makes riding more accessible for everyone regardless of their physical condition and experience. Everyone can comfortably handle the bike. The fact that it’s almost completely silent boosts the riding experience and serves for the absolute presence and focus while out exploring. It also enhances the level of respect towards our surroundings and those sharing the space with us – whether they’re fellow hikers, wildlife or even your neighbors when riding around your backyard track.
Clean, electric energy has numerous advantages. The fact that there’s no pollution or fumes and that you can charge your bike with renewable energy through the lifetime of the bike, is true evidence of sustainability. Since there are no fluids, grease, gasoline or oil, the bike doesn’t suck up dirt like a magnet, meaning it’s more like a bicycle.
The goal is to Inspire people, contributing to speed up the journey towards a zero emission society, combining excitement with responsibility.
