In the present day, not many people would have expected technology to advance just as far as it has. In almost every aspect of our lives, some sort of advanced technology has affected us—improving, or in some cases, making our lives more difficult.
In the area of bicycles, there have been no extremely groundbreaking innovations since their modern concepts from the mid-1800s, retaining much of the well-known bicycle shape that we have come to know. However, even with the unchanging style, people have still found a way to improve their overall experience, adding bits of technology here and there: lights, reflectors, horns and bells, and new materials.
One especially interesting improvement on the bicycle has been the addition of an electric motor to power your ride. In gaining popularity, we have begun to see all the benefits of electric bikes.
- Fast and Efficient Travel: For the commuter who may have to travel a couple of blocks or a couple of miles to get to their destination, electric bikes make it possible to get there in no time. As another benefit to electric bikes, even when going up steep hills, pedal-assisted bikes have the power to carry you to the top. In addition to all these features, not having to spend money on gas is an even better incentive.
- Improving Fitness: Many electric bikes come with pedal assist, meaning that as you pedal, the electric motors will also be pedaling along with you. In the case of our own bikes, we even provide the rider with throttle control to select their speed. Allowing you to pedal means that you’re also getting exercise during your ride.
- Changing Your Lifestyle: People have started to recognize the benefits of electric bikes more and more throughout their days. Maybe you need to run to the store for a few items or are going to visit a nearby friend. Either way, many of our commutes don’t require the use of a car, helping to save you money and resources throughout your day.
