The success of the campaign validates that we’re fulfilling the demand from commuters for great looking, fast, safe and affordable fully equipped eBikes
Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) February 26, 2016
Shocke Bikes, makers of the ultimate electric bicycles for commuters, has gone back-to-back surpassing its second straight crowdfunding goal. The new Ampere and Surge models, eBikes for urban adventures, have taken off in popularity on Indiegogo.
The elegant and versatile Ampere and the intelligent performance hybrid Surge, have raised over $46,000 (and counting) from cycling enthusiasts across North America.
The Ampere and Surge are designed to meet the needs of demanding urban cyclists. The Ampere is a Dutch style step-through with a 350w rear hub motor while the 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). Both models look great and with the in-frame battery, people just think it’s a really fast bicycle because the battery is stealth-like.
“We’re really excited and thankful for the support we’ve received for our new models,” said Shocke Bikes co-founder Steven Lo. “The success of the campaign validates that we’re fulfilling the demand from commuters for great looking, fast, safe and affordable fully equipped eBikes.”
With an impressive 44 mile (70KM) range, Shocke Bikes are equipped with pedal assist to give cyclists a boost. Both the Surge and Ampere come with a smart LCD backlit display that indicates speed, distance traveled, motor assistance level, batter voltage and more.
“Based on the overwhelmingly positive feedback and the popularity of our new models we’re expecting a strong finish to our crowdfunding campaign,” added Lo. “We’re excited for our new backers because we know they will love their new eBikes.”

About Shocke Bikes
In 2012, a group of young professionals got together with an aspiration of creating positive sustainable change in the world. With a few projects in mind, revolutionizing the way people went about their daily transport was the priority, as it has the potential of positively transforming the behavior and subsequent health of the entire population. Last year, through the support of hundreds of amazing people, we brought Spark, a versatile electric bicycle to the market. We are proud to say that we delivered the bicycle on time with all that we promised and more.
Since then we have made amazing connections with hundreds of people and also learned a lot from our mistakes. Not only have we applied these lessons to Spark but also to Ampere and Surge, bringing you two all-new urban electric bicycles like no other. Shocke Bikes, we hope you come along for the ride.
