According to Don DiCostanzo, President and Co-Founder of Pedego, “The European market was the next logical step to introduce our line of stylish and efficient premium electric bikes that are made with only top-of-the-line components. Electric bikes have been in countries including the UK, Germany, and France for several years but the savvy European consumers have been looking for a more comfortable ride with the American cruiser styling found in our Classic and Step-Thru models. And for individualized choice options, Pedegos are available in 60 different color combinations of frame, tires and wheel rims.”
Terrell (Terry) Sherry, Pedego CFO and Co-Founder added, “All electric bikes cannot be created equal, due to various EU rules & regulations. We had to do a bit of tweaking to our bikes in order to meet European standards for electric bikes. The 250 watt motor with lithium polymer 36-volt batteries average maximum speeds of 15 mph in the European models compared with the US styles of 500 watt motors that reach average maximum speeds of 20 mph. In addition the European models are pedal assist with power that is delivered by a sensor in the pedal crank that determines how hard the rider is pedaling and triggers the motor to provide a proportional amount of power.”
