Sure, eBikes are great for making your commute more manageable, but they often times lack in the style department. The same can’t be said for the Pedego Airstream Electric Bike which offers similar comforts and features as other electric vehicles on the market but in packaged geared more towards style.
The Airstream Electric Bike’s design adhere’s to the rest of Pedego’s lineup, but gains a helping hand from the iconic Airstream Camper’s brushed aluminum finish. The joint effort between the two companies results in all the function that Pedego provides to its vehicles, but with an added sense of modern style.
The bicycle’s form factor also highlights a few ergonomic features to help ensure that prolonged rides are enjoyable. Pedego contends that wide, swept-back handlebars paired with a “deluxe saddle” and seat suspension system promote a comfortable upright riding position.
Arguably the most two important aspects of any electric vehicle are speed and range. In terms of the former, the Airstream eBike can hit top speeds of 20 miles per hour, which is said to be the highest federal and state regulations will allow for. The overall travel-able distance is just as important, to which Pedego’s eBike has a fairly diverse range. Based on rider weight, terrain, weather, speed and level of pedaling assist, you can expect a range between 25 and 60 miles.
In Pedego’s eyes, the ideal eBike has both pedal assist as well as a fully electric riding mode. The Airstream eBike is no exception to this narrative and comes equipped with both options. Pedal assist is great for those looking for a more traditional biking experience, but appreciate the enhancements from eBikes. This also allows the bike to conserve power and extend its maximum driving range.
The fully electric mode on the other hand is controlled via a throttle on the handlebar which allows you to quickly adjust speed during commutes. While this mode will certainly use more power, it allows for a more effortless riding experience.
Additionally, it also sports an LCD display to showcase current usage stats like speed, remaining battery power and more. You’ll also find a USB port for keeping your phone charged on the go. Worth noting is recharge time, which clocks in between two and six hours, and can be powered up using any standard wall outlet.
Pedego’s latest addition to its eBike lineup is certainly a premium vehicle, with a retail price just shy of $3,000. If you’re interested in upgrading your current ride or making the switch to an electric bicycle, Pedego has a variety of dealers scattered around the US and Europe which can get you started.
The Pedego Airstream Electric Bike provides a fun travel experience without sacrificing comfort. Riders can enjoy the great outdoors, going off the beaten path, reaching farther destinations and climbing to new vistas. Airstreamers find electric bikes useful as well as thrilling when they discover how easy it is to ride into town or along scenic paths after setting up camp. They can even zip along at high elevations without becoming winded. Powered by Pedego’s rugged motors and powerful batteries, these bikes empower riders to fly over hills, zoom through headwinds and travel distances with ease.
