Electric Bicycle

Ivan Tulupov with Desperado

In many parts of the world, electric bikes are limited to a top speed of 20 mph (32 km/h) – any higher, and they'd no longer be legally classified as bicycles. While that may keep the speed down on commercially-produced e-bikes, such is not the case with one-offs. A case in point is Russian blogger Ivan Tulupov's twin-motored Desperado.  Read More

The Bike+ is scheduled to hit the market next year

Determined to mimic the efficiency-boosting approach of non-plug-in hybrid cars like the Toyota Prius, Italian manufacturer ZeHus has developed a small, lightweight e-bike system that optimizes cyclists' efficiency. The hub-based unit aims to add exactly the right amount of electric propulsion to create flowing, seamless rides without the huffing, puffing and walking.  Read More

The ONEbike uses a frame-integrated battery

E-bikes may be among the techiest of modern bicycles, but they tend to have big, pudgy designs that look more outdated than cutting edge. Large battery packs, bulging hub motors and wires running to and fro have a way of making bikes look big, bulky and busy. Bicycle manufacturers and designers are starting to get hip to the idea that e-bikes should look as clean and high-tech as they ride, integrating electrical components in more seamless ways. The latest is a design from Swiss design firm Concept Cycle.  Read More

The Greyp G-12 electric bike is made by Croatia's Rimac Automobili

If you want a stunningly fast, eye-catching electric supercar, you could do worse than the Rimac Concept One. Should you not have approximately US$1 million to spend on one, however, there's still something you can buy that's made by Croatia's Rimac Automobili – the €6,000 (US$8,000) Greyp G-12 electric bicycle/motorcycle/moped-type thing.  Read More

The 2X4 Cargo Bike, in all its stuff-haulin' glory

Cargo bikes are nothing new, nor are electric-assist bikes, nor even two-wheel-drive models. NTS Works’ 2X4 Cargo Bike is definitely unique, however, in the way that it combines all three.  Read More

The BigFish Line+ E-bike, folded down and ready to tote

The BigFish Line+ E-bike is one of those electric bikes that's designed to make you swoon at the press of a button. One of the stars of the recent Eurobike 2013 show, this bike's button-operated folding system has the bike collapsing in seconds into a compact package that can be pulled in trolley fashion or wheeled around. In fact, it's so portable that it's possible to squeeze two of them into the boot of most standard cars.  Read More

The Coboc eCycle took out the Gorl Award at this year's Eurobike

Although slapping a battery pack and the requisite electrics to a conventional-looking frame to create an electric bike seems to be a path well traveled by a large number exhibitors at Eurobike 2013, there were a few designs that see the various electric components integrated into the frame. One example is the Coboc 3.0, which took out the Gold Award in the eBike/pedelec category at this year’s Eurobike.  Read More

Mando's new Footloose prototype leaves the fold

Following the official launch of its Footloose folding e-bike at Eurobike 2012, Mando turned up to Eurobike 2013 with a new prototype that is remarkably similar to the current Footloose, but with one major difference – it doesn’t fold.  Read More

The Rubbee's polyurethane roller engages the rear tire, making a motor-only speed of 25 km...

There are likely quite a few people who think that an electric bicycle might come in handy sometimes, but who aren’t willing to buy a whole other bike or permanently convert their existing non-electric model. Well, that’s why the Rubbee was created. It’s an electric drive unit that attaches to a regular bicycle in only a few seconds, and that comes off just as quickly.  Read More

Peugeot's AE21 Hybrid electric bike previewed last week at the 'What's Next' show

European automakers aren’t averse to producing vehicles of the two-wheeled, pedal-powered variety. BMW, Audi and Mercedes-Benz all offer a range of bicycles, with most also adding electric bikes to their line ups in recent years. Peugeot is no exception and recently previewed its latest ebike, the AE21 Hybrid, at the “Who’s Next” show in Paris.  Read More
