Electrobike has introduced the new AIR33, an electric bicycle poised for getting you around the city in style, and without the burdens that an ordinary street bike may present. The AIR33 is lightweight and foldable, with the latter feature being tailored sensibly to one’s needs: the bike can still be rolled on its wheels when folded up, meaning you don’t have to carry it. As well, the bicycle includes an electric motor for riding along without peddling or for assistance while going up hills.
The company describes its bicycle as being both ultra-lightweight and eco-friendly while still offering the best features an electric bike can possess. This includes a battery that is locked away so that it is difficult to steal, as well as support for fast charging, which gets the bicycle from low back to full charge within two hours.
When unfolded, the bicycle measures 59 x 39.5 x 23-inches, and when folded it measures 32.5 x 21.5 x 16-inches. There’s an anti-theft lock for when it is folded, and it is able to travel up to 35-miles on a charge when using pedal-assist. The bicycle also includes a dashboard that shows how miles have been traveled, the battery level, how fast you’re going, and how much assistance is being applied.
Electrobike has raised nearly its full $75,000 goal and has 16 days remaining in its campaign. The super early bird model is being offered for a $799 pledge, while the anticipated retail pricing will be $2,299 USD. The estimated delivery date is February 2017 to anywhere around the globe, but as with crowdfunded products, this is liable to change.
