Pedego®, the US-based electric bike company known for using top-of-the line components and sleek, comfortable styling and design is growing at an unprecedented rate. In the company’s brief history, Pedego® has catapulted to the second place overall sales position for electric bike brands in the United States and launched sales in Europe, Australia & New Zealand, Russia, Canada and South Africa and earned a 5-star status on RatePoint.com.
Pedego is the combined efforts of two baby boomer entrepreneurs, Don DiCostanzo and Terry Sherry, both with a vision to differentiate Pedego®, from all other e-bikes. They achieved this through sleek styling, advanced technology, top-of-the-line components and comfortable designs. The Pedego brand offers fun for people of all ages with a specific emphasis on the 40-plus market. The zero-emission bikes offer up to 45 miles / 65km per charge and pose significantly lower environmental impact than cars.
The business started with the launch of the Classic and Step Thru cruisers. Beach Cruiser bike designs based on the look made famous by Schwinn in the first part of the 20th century. These bikes and the business were born from the realisation that the electric bike market needed something that looked good and was comfortable to ride, a bike that people wanted to be seen on and was fun to ride. With that in mind we were quick to add the colour choices and styling options you see available to you today.
According to Pedego®, CEO, Don DiCostanzo, “We always knew that the best way to get people back on a bike was to create a comfortable ride with reliable parts and components. Everything from the Shimano gears to triple-coated durable finishes are among the best available in the industry. Pedego Europe offers the Comfort Cruiser with a powerful brushless, geared hub motor and lightweight, removable lithium battery pack that can run up to 45 miles / 65km per charge and can be recharged quickly.
Pedego subsequently broadened the range of available models within the cruiser series, keeping proven design concepts and maintaining and increasing performance with the Interceptor e-bike with a 48-volt battery and a proprietary 500 watt electromagnetic motor. In addition, the Tandem electric bicycle was added to the portfolio. This is now a favourite among many tandem enthusiasts around the work and with tour and rental companies. In Europe the Pedego Tandem is provided with a 36V 15ah battery as standard. A final string to the cruiser bike range bow is the introduction of a smaller Step Thru Cruiser with a smaller Step Thru frame and 24″ wheels rather than 26.” This will be available in Europe in 2014.
Branching out from the Cruiser Series was the next step, and that step was the introduction of the City Commuter Series. The Step Thru and Classic frame designs of the Commuter Series offer a refined ride with thinner and larger 28″ wheels. The design is sleeker than the Cruisers with an emphasis on road riding but with no loss of emphasis on the comfort of your ride and the performance of the bike.
Pedego did not stop there. The next major product line too be introduced has been the Trail Tracker Series. A fat bike off road bike in striking colours with striking looks. We have taken the fun factor with electric bikes to a new level.
