Irvine, CA (PRWEB) September 21, 2009
PEDEGO, an electric bicycle company creating the coolest electric bicycles outfitted with the latest in electric technology, announces the debut of the world's first electric tandem bicycle. The bike will be on display September 23-25 at Interbike International Bicycle Expo, the cycling industry's largest trade show, in Las Vegas. This two-person e-bike joins PEDEGO's growing line of electric bicycles including the Comfort Cruisers and Umbrella Folding electric bicycles.
PEDEGO offers consumers comfortable and fun electric bike options. The new tandem bike is designed specifically for couples of all ages who enjoy riding together. With its electric capabilities, it allows riders a smooth ride whether cruising across a flat surface or over hills.
The PEDEGO tandem e-bike features a beach cruiser design with two wide, cushioned seats, relaxed handlebars and a rear motor. Featuring the same components as other PEDEGO bicycles, it operates much like a regular tandem but utilizes a parallel electric drive system that includes a 750-watt motor and 48-volt lithium manganese battery. The battery will last about 15,000 miles and costs less than 10 cents to recharge. The throttle is controlled by the rear rider gently revving the right handlebar grip.
"PEDEGO fuses fashion and fun with electric bike technology, so we're thrilled to be the first company to offer a cool tandem bike with electric components," said Don DiCostanzo, co- founder and CEO of PEDEGO. "As interest in electric bikes continues to grow both here and abroad, PEDEGO remains committed to offering consumers unique, quality bicycles available in stylish designs with customizable options."
The PEDEGO electric tandems will be available in time for this coming holiday season and will retail for approximately $2,300. For more information about PEDEGO, please visit PEDEGO Electric Bikes.
