Electric bikes are gaining speed. A2B.

Boot Camp feature for Tuesday, May 21, 2013

Electric bikes are gaining speed.  I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    Rechargeable electric bikes are gaining in popularity…and there’s a lot to like.   Hero Eco is now the owner of the A2B brand and it is putting the focus on quality with models that are designed to use a handlebar throttle, pedal assist or a mixture of both.   GM Fernando Kuefer…

“The premium e-bike sector in the U.S. is growing.  It’s a new market and a market in development and as such there are constant new entrants into the market.  They will come up with gimmicks like we have 20 colors of tires or we have 20 colors of handles.  But there are very few brands like us that invest time and money in R&D and come up with products that make sense from the bottom up as an e-bike.”

Pricing starts at about 14 hundred dollars.  There’s more info at wearea2b.com.   You can find us with archives, interviews and more at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
