DENVER (PRWEB) August 06, 2019
SWAGTRON®, the leader in affordable light electric vehicles, today announces the EB12 Electric City Bike. While known for compact and folding e-bikes, the EB12 marks the brand’s first foray into full-size electric bicycles.
The SWAGTRON EB12 pairs a 53cm diamond road frame and 700c wheels to a smooth and efficient 250-watt motor and 7-speed Shimano drivetrain for a modern take on a classic commuter.
Riders can engage the motor with a thumb-actuated lever on the handle-bar or via “pedal to go” mode. The EB12 is capable of up to 28 miles per charge and a top speed of 16 miles per hour using throttle only, but thanks to its seven gears, the EB12 makes an extremely versatile urban e-bike.
“Our folding e-bikes have been extremely popular,” says CMO Jason Wakefield. “But the compact design isn’t for everyone. We wanted to bring the look and feel of a classic road bike into the 21st century by pairing it with the ease of use and efficiency of an e-bike while keeping it affordable. The EB12 is that bike.”
The understated satin black aluminum frame is paired with a steel fork for a compliant ride. The EB12 uses a flat bar and riser stem for a more relaxed, upright riding position to reduce strain on wrists, arms and shoulders.
A rear-mounted, lockable, 36-volt Lithium-ion battery features a USB charging port to keep devices powered on the go, and doubles as a cargo rack. The battery is removable, making it easy to take with you for easy charging or swap out with a fully charged one (sold separately).
A bar-mounted LED display allows riders to change speed modes as well as monitor battery life, speed and distance. The included safety bell can be used to alert pedestrians and other riders of your presence.
The EB12 retails for $999.99 and is initially available exclusively through BestBuy.com and in-store at select locations.
