Royal Dutch Gazelle CityZen C8 HMB: Classic Look With Modern Drivetrain

American Dutch-style bike maker Gazelle recently announced its new eBike called CityZen. CityZen slips into the market touting the best of both worlds: the world where you still get the joy of pedaling and the world where you get some assistant in the form of an electric motor when the going gets tough. So, yes, it is indeed a hybrid bike, or more correctly, a pedal-assist bicycle. The styling is classic and the only hints of its electric capability is the box cross frame of the bike and also, the somewhat chunky mid-motor. Other than those, you will still be enjoying the classic look. Continue reading Royal Dutch Gazelle CityZen C8 HMB: Classic Look With Modern Drivetrain

BMW And SPECIALIZED Announced Special Edition E-Mountain Bike

BMW has come together with premium trail bike maker SPECIALIZED to introduce a limited-run special edition of the bike maker’s Specialized Turbo Levo called SPECIALIZED for BMW Turbo Levo FSR 6Fattie. No doubt a marketing effort to promote German automaker’s new Sports Activity Vehicle, the new-generation X3, judging from its appearance in the various product images available to the press. Anyways, marketing talks aside, this e-mountain bike is clearly an exquisite, top-end item. Clever integration of the power module into the specially developed aluminum frame gave the bike a clean, regular bike look (but in an uber sleek way, of course).

This Sleek Tesla Battery-powered eBike Is foldable, Has Range Up To 45 Miles

Yesterday was my first time riding a shared bike and I did not have a good experience. Cycling is fun, but not so much when there are gradients. Bicycle lets you feel the slope that hardly took notice when walking or even running, and the fact that that particular bike’s tires were under pressure didn’t help much. Man, that was pure torture and at that point, I wished I had an electric bike or at least a pedal-assist bike. Anyways, that’s just some useless info that has probably nothing to do with the Aero Foldable Electric Bicycle by French company Weebot that we are looking at today. Aero is sleek new entrant to the eBike market that, from what we read, feels like a full-featured electric bicycle with the benefit of being portable. OK. Maybe not portable, but towable.

Hubless Bike Glows Like Tron’s Light Cycle, Heralds The Future Of Bicycle

You haven’t see flying cars zipping across the city’s sky and so, it shouldn’t surprise you that bicycles, electric or not, still look largely like your grandfather’s bicycle. However, that’s set to change with Cyclotron Bike Spokeless Smart Cycle. As the product name subtly hints, this pedal-assist bicycle has a little bit of Tron element to it – thanks to its hubless design with integrated lights. Granted, you can’t ride it flat on your stomach like the Light Cycle, but still, it is quite a sight to be hold and clearly, radically different from today’s bicycles. Cyclotron Bike goes beyond just looking futuristic; its build and drivetrain are pretty high-tech too, comprising of a space-grade composite construction of ultra lightweight carbon fiber frame with lightweight core structure. Continue reading Hubless Bike Glows Like Tron’s Light Cycle, Heralds The Future Of Bicycle

4-wheel Power-assist Electric Bicycle Looks Like A Real Life Car Caricature

What you see here is a bicycle. No, really. It is a bicycle, an electric bicycle to be exact. Built by Swedish dude Mikael Kjellman, PopRide, as it is called, was born out of the desire to have the practicality of bicycle with the comfort and convenience of car. Actually, it is more like a pedal-powered kart because it has four wheels, but that argument is pretty irrelevant. The point is, this unique transportation gets you from point A to point B by means of your own leg power which provides some form of exercise much needed by urbanites. Continue reading 4-wheel Power-assist Electric Bicycle Looks Like A Real Life Car Caricature

Ono Bikes’ Archont Electro Bike Is Crazy Fast And Insanely Beautiful

Chopper-like bicycles have been around for ages, perhaps, born out as an alternative for the real deal. Whatever was the case, one thing for sure is, Ono Bike is going to change how you look at a chopper, be it a motorcycle or a bicycle, with its first wildly radical e-bike called Archont Electro. Stretching to nearly 3 meter long, Archont sports the familiar chopper easy ride silhouette, but that’s where the similarity ends. The bike is built around a tubular frame, smooth flowing and appropriately curved to achieve a minimal, skeletal look. Continue reading Ono Bikes’ Archont Electro Bike Is Crazy Fast And Insanely Beautiful

A Simple Wheel Change Will Turn This 34 lbs Electric Bike into a Regular Bike

Toronto-based electric bicycle maker is back, but this time round, there ain’t no beast. It newest product is a ‘regular’ electric bike, called EC1. Well, EC1 is not quite regular actually. It stands out as a ultra lightweight carbon fiber bike that weighs in at mere 34 lbs (or 15 kg) and for a limited time, can be yours to own for $1,039 CAD. That’s a heck of a bargain price for an electric bike and not to mention one that’s of carbon fiber construction. Continue reading A Simple Wheel Change Will Turn This 34 lbs Electric Bike into a Regular Bike

Daymak Introduces Beast D Electric Bicycle with Dual 500W Motor, Calls it an Electric ATV

When you are hell bent in venturing into the woods, an ATV appears to be the perfect option. But that’s assuming that the woods is generous enough to provide you the space your ATV needs, or you could go with a two-wheel electric all-terrain vehicle, like the Daymak The Beast D Off-Road Electric ATV that could get past the narrowest space imposed by the trees. But wait. Isn’t that the same Beast we saw on Kickstarter sometime last year? Yup. It sure is. But that was an electric bicycle, isn’t it? Again, yes, but the Canadian outfit’s new iteration is said to be a basher of sort and is destined for off-road use only and they are calling it the two-wheel all-terrain vehicle. Continue reading Daymak Introduces Beast D Electric Bicycle with Dual 500W Motor, Calls it an Electric ATV

This is Impossible Folding Electric Bike and it Fits Inside a Regular Backpack

How small should a foldable electric bike be to be considered really portable? How about one that fits inside a regular backpack? Sounds impossible? Well, that’s precisely why the bike here is called the Impossible Folding Electric Bike. The electric bicycle was conceived by Beijing-based Impossible Technology with the aim to take bike portability to where it has never been before and not only did they achieve the impossible, they are ready to let you have one if you’re willing to plonk down at least $430 for it and have the patience to wait till August 2015 for the first delivery. In order to get the bicycle this tiny and still functional, Impossible has frames built around circles as opposed to the traditional horizontal frame. In this way, it helps to distribute the rider’s weight evenly across the bike’s entire carbon fiber and steel frame. Continue reading This is Impossible Folding Electric Bike and it Fits Inside a Regular Backpack

Otocycles Retro-styling Electric Bikes Looks Like The Lovable Cafe Racers Of The 50s

these craftsman electric bikes from Barcelona-based Otocycles are unlike what you have seen. instead of adhering to contemporary lines, Otocycles draws its design inspiration from the bikes of the fifties, presenting them in a form resembling the cafe racers of the 50s and 60s, but only skinnier and a whole lot environmentally-friendly. the thing that makes Otocycles stands out is, their electric bikes are not one-size-fits-all; each bike is totally customizable with a range of colors, components and parts, to suit your riding needs and preferences. though, there are also stock, ready-to-ride bikes for those who prefer not to mess with the customization process.
