E-Rideables leader expands e-bike offerings with affordable campus commuter.
SWAGTRON™, the undisputed leader in electric rideables, today expands its e-bike offerings with the EB1 Electric Bike, an affordable campus commuter. The EB1 is a compact, aluminum, electric bike designed for navigating urban commutes and college campuses. Featuring a powerful-yet-silent 250-watt motor, the EB1 is capable of reaching speeds up to 12.4 miles per hours, scaling inclines up to 25 degrees and carrying riders up to 242.5 pounds, all with a 7.45-mile range. The EB1 can be used in pedal-to-go mode (similar to pedal assist), throttle only or pedaled as a traditional bike, allowing you to save battery power for when you really need it, and giving you the power to go farther and faster than using the motor alone.
“Personal transportation is undergoing a bit of a renaissance thanks to electric rideables,” says Jason Wakefield, director of marketing. “As a brand, we strive to make that technology clean, smart, accessible and affordable for everyone.”
The EB1’s stem folds down and pedals fold in, making the bike compact for easy storage and transportation when space is at a premium. The 36V Li-ion battery reaches full charge in two to three hours, making sure it can ready for your return trip from school or the office. Dual disc brakes provide confidence in a variety of conditions, and Autoguard braking technology automatically cuts engine power whenever brakes are applied. Ergonomic paddle-shaped grips help evenly distribute pressure on hands for increased comfort and control while riding. Other smart features include a USB port for charging devices on the go, front and rear fenders to keep splashes at bay, an LED headlight for enhanced visibility at night and a safety bell.
The Swagtron EB1 Electric Bike retails for $599.99 and is available now for an introductory price of $479.99 at Swagtron.com.
