With everything the UK government has done over the past year to support health, wellbeing and fitness, EBIKE Cafe @ Deheers on Custom House Quay, Weymouth have just become the very first local partner of the coolest and most innovative eBike in the cycling market. The Knaap 2-seater eBike out of Amsterdam, provides more people than ever before with the opportunity to use cycling for physical and mental health wellbeing.
The cycling market across the UK has grown over 320% this year* seeing every cycle shop in the region stretched to it‘s very limit. It has seen millions of us use cycling not only as a way to maintain our general fitness but more and more using it for shorter journeys to replace the car in getting to local shops and services.
The brand new Knaap two-seater, pedal assisted eBike can carry upto 28 stone (180kg). This means that any type of rider, young or old, large or small can now enjoy cycling with all of the physical and mental health benefits associated with outdoor exercise. The Knaap bikes provides a powered motor in the rear wheel to give a level of assistance that helps the rider reach a maximum speed of 15mph whilst gently spinning the pedals meaning that almost anyone, of any level, fitness, weight and ability can ride these bikes.
The great benefit of the Knaap bikes in particular is that they are road legal for carrying 2 riders meaning commuting back into work could look a lot different from the past. It has the largest battery in the eBike industry, enough to carry one rider over 80 miles and two riders north of 30 miles all at upto 25kmh. All of which can be powered by renewable and sustainable electric energy.
Knaap Bike were recently awarded the ‘Innovation from a Newcomer’ in Cycling Industry BikeBiz Awards, voted for by UK Independent Cycle Retailers.
These Knaap bikes have been described by industry insiders as “The Most Instagramable Bikes Ever” and at one glance you can see that they have combined retro with supercool, for every age group. They even say If Steve McQueen were alive today, you could see him riding one of these.
Traditional style eBikes sales around the UK have grown considerably over the past 2 years and account for over 40% of the value of all sales. Now, with the recent announced Governments Green Initiative announcement, we may see eBikes being supported by Government grants or initiatives to get us out of our cars and onto eBikes as an alternative, more green solution for town and city commuting.
