BOLDER Technologies Corporation (Nasdaq: BOLD) announced that an electric motorcycle called the “Killa-Cycle,” powered by BOLDER’s patented Thin Metal Film (TMF®) technology, recently set a new National Electric Drag Racing Association (NEDRA) speed record, according to Roger Warren, chairman, president and CEO of BOLDER.
The Killa-Cycle, driven by Kerry Hogan and owned by Bill Dube, completed a quarter-mile race in 10.539 seconds at Speedworld Motorplex, a National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) member track located in Phoenix, Arizona. The totally electric motorcycle was powered by an enhanced battery system comprised of 456 TMF cells, interconnected in such a way to supply a peak power of about a third of a million watts during a quarter- mile run. The TMF cells that power the Killa-Cycle are the same cells that provide starting power for the SecureStart(TM) emergency engine jump start products that are currently available through Sears, Target, and other major retail stores. Technical information on the Killa-Cycle can be found on the website www.killacycle.com .
Warren stated, “We are very excited about the Killa-Cycle and the National Electric Drag Race Association’s promotion of TMF technology. We are pleased that TMF technology is becoming the baseline for electric drag race vehicles. The Killa-Cycle has provided an excellent avenue to highlight the enabling performance capability and superior attributes of our TMF technology – packing very high power into a small compact space and releasing this high power very quickly.”
BOLDER Technologies Corporation, headquartered in Golden, Colorado, manufactures and markets advanced, high-power rechargeable batteries based on its patented Thin Metal Film (TMF®) technology. The Company is developing and commercializing consumer and OEM battery products with the TMF technology, including the SecureStart(TM) Portable Jump Starter, that use proven lead-acid electrochemistry in a proprietary configuration with a higher power density than any commercially available rechargeable battery. The TMF technology offers numerous advantages over existing batteries for current and future applications, including near-term opportunities in the marine and auto after markets for 12V batteries.

BOLDER’s TMF technology also has possible future applications in the pending auto industry conversion from 12V to 36V systems, both directly through vendor sales and indirectly through a license agreement with Johnson Controls (JCI). JCI uses the TMF technology for its Inspira® battery system for 42V architectures and is highlighting the opportunity on its website: www.johnsoncontrols.com/ .
