Electric bikes have been around almost as long as the bicycle itself. In fact, some of the first electric bikes started popping up in the late 1890s but the technology was far from being commercially viable. Even into the 1990s battery technology was not really ready for prime time. But over the last few years, electric bicycles have benefited from rapid advancements in stable lithium-ion battery cells and chargers, torque and speed sensors, and many electronic technologies coming out of the automotive industry.

Electric bicycles make cycling more accessible to the millions of people that, for a multitude of very good reasons, find it impractical, or find themselves unable to ride a traditional bicycle (or as we call them, acoustic bikes). Many of us would love to get out and ride or simply just ride more frequently, but are challenged for a host of different reasons.
- Ugh, those hills! – I’d love to ride but the terrain makes it too difficult.
- Physical challenges – Fitness level or aging has taken its toll.
- Kids and cargo – Carrying heavy loads makes cycling impractical.
- The hot and humid climate – I just can’t show up to work drenched in sweat.
Electric Bikes eliminate these objections and many more. They provide you newfound freedom and are just incredibly fun to ride!
