Take a Sneak Peek at Segway’s New E-Bikes
In October 2014, Segway unveiled a new line of electric bicycles for the European market at the International Motorcycle, Scooter and eBike Fair (Intermot) in Cologne, Germany. Here’s a couple behind the scenes sneak peek photos of our Segway e-bike shoot, which also took place in Germany.
Our e-bikes feature both Bosch and Shimano STePS mid-mount electric motors. These motors are renowned for efficiency, durability and performance. They will quietly power gears without impeding balance ensuring rider control on steeper inclines and long routes. Segway’s bikes also boast Shimano hydraulic brake and gear/shifter systems. These elements will provide riders superior hydraulic braking power to maximize safety, while also optimizing integrated gear, shift and power transfers to ensure a balanced and smooth ride.
Rod Keller, President, Segway Inc. commented, “The European e-bike market continues to grow and is incredibly dynamic. We’re confident that Europeans will enthusiastically embrace Segway’s e-bikes.”
Segway’s e-bikes are designed for bicyclists of all ages and abilities that appreciate smooth, agile, quiet, environmentally friendly transportation. The line features trek, mountain, city and urban models.
Segway, through its wide network of European distributors, is now accepting e-bike orders. The
e-bikes will start to ship from March 2015 and continue throughout the season. For more information, please contact your local distributor or email firstname.lastname@example.org stating your country of residence.
