Vancouver, British Columbia (PRWEB) February 03, 2016
Shocke Bikes, makers of the ultimate electric bicycles for commuters, today launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign for its much anticipated new e-bikes - the elegant and versatile Ampere and the intelligent performance hybrid Surge.
Ampere and Surge are designed to meet the needs of demanding urban cyclists. Ampere is a Dutch style step-through with a 350w rear hub motor while Surge is a 700c performance hybrid, propelled with a 350w mid-drive motor that can take users up to speeds of 20 MPH (32 KM/hr).
With an impressive 44 mile (70km) range, Shocke Bikes are equipped with pedal assist to help give cyclists a boost. Both Surge and Ampere come with a smart LCD backlit display that indicates speed, distance traveled, motor assistance level, battery voltage and more.
“Shocke Bikes was founded with the goal of bringing affordable, high quality electric bicycles to commuters and cyclists across North America. We imagine communities where people of all abilities feel comfortable traveling around exploring their city by bicycle,” said Shocke Bikes co-founder Steven Lo. “We want cycling to be a fun activity for a wide range of people regardless of age, ability and gender.”
Unlike other electric bikes on the market, Shocke Bikes come fully equipped with everything a cyclist will need, eliminating the need to buy expensive aftermarket parts to fit onto the bikes.
“We designed our sleek, modern electric bikes to be centered around the heart of the bicycle, the battery. Our e-bikes boast an industry leading in-frame integrated battery design that makes charging and replacing simple and practical,” added Lo.

Front and rear LED lights with turn signals and laser illuminated lanes

7 speed gearing system
Throttle power and 5 level pedal assist
Unique aluminum-alloy frame design
