As the Leading LAPIERRE Distributor in Malaysia & South East Asia, KT Cyclone Sdn Bhd will unveil its very first LAPIERRE Electric Bicycle (e-bike) in Malaysia before year end.
The electric revolution in the bicycle industry has resulted in the rising trend of e-bikes with soaring sales of e-bikes in many countries since Year 2016. Why? Below are some interesting facts about e-bikes that make everyone loves them.
E-bikes, sometimes also known as powerbike or booster bike, are bicycles with battery-powered “assist” system that comes via pedaling. An electric motor is integrated into the bikes to assist the cyclist’s pedal power. This electric motor is powered by rechargeable batteries, which can be used for propulsion.
Reason 1: E-bikes makes pedaling much easier than regular bikes
Riding on a pedal assist e-bike feels just like riding on a regular bike with a boost. It helps you to propel while pedaling. Hence, you can accelerate faster and feel more powerful. This means you can control your speed with your feet.
Reason 2: E-bikes can run faster than regular bikes
As you can control your speed with your feet, the harder you pedal, the faster you will ride. You are able to save more time and energy while enjoy beautiful scenery at the same time. You can also adjust your e-bike power with a power switch from “eco” or low setting to “turbo” or high setting to produce more power when you go uphill.
Reason 3: You will ride more
Believe it or not, with an e-bike you will have the tendency to ride more often, for longer distance, and longer time without feeling tired or overworked. Thanks to the battery-powered “assist” feature of e-bikes, you will have a more enjoyable riding experience if you are a seasoned rider. For the beginners, you will feel more confident when riding an e-bike.
Reason 4: E-bikes help you to burn calories
Although E-bikes help you to propel faster, you will still need to pedal when you ride. This essentially means that you will still exercise by pedaling on e-bike, get some calories burnt, and increase your cardiovascular fitness level. What a great way to exercise!
Reason 5: E-bikes will be our future mode of transport
As we see growing number of people using e-bikes now, most bicycle manufacturers are already producing e-bikes in many countries. The car manufacturers are also catching up with the trend. Soon, e-bikes will take over the car market and become future mode of transportation.
