After a long day of endless walking at CES, Electrek was invited out after hours for a closer look at the Lightyear One. We were met by the design and engineering team, who were very capable and forthright with their car and company. This was a welcome surprise since most companies send PR/sales teams to talk tech to journalists.

Riding along the trail on a soft, confident electric bike is a very liberating feeling, and the TRB1 AM delivers exactly that. As a well-equipped bicycle, it instills a lot of confidence in sticky situations, and the added weight of the large electric system actually feels nice going downhill. Where was this bike hiding?

The team at GoCycle has found the sweet spot of features and practicality with the GX model they’ve dubbed “The Fast Folder“. This is easily the cleanest bike I’ve ever ridden, and the lightweight frame, customizable power output, truly ground-up design, and spacey looks are very unique. While not as feature-rich as the rest of the GoCycle lineup, it has the right amount of changes to make it a mainstay as a high-end folding commuter.

If you ever thought “I need two motors on an electric bike”, you’re not alone. The rush, the challenge, the thrill of new terrain, new seasons, and new hills is quite appealing. It’s far less likely you’ve ever thought: “I need two motors to get to work” but, in case you did, you’re also covered. With a strange combination of components and accessories, EUNORAU has made an amazingly fun and somehow useful dual motor electric bike.

BULLS is known for making a lot of different electric bikes. Cruisers, hard-tails, all-mountain, commuters, and much more. While they don’t get too far into unconventional frames and experimental models or drive systems, they’re not afraid to test the smaller existing markets.
Case in point, the Alpine Hawk EVO. My first impression when hearing of the model was intrigued. There have been a few entries into the carbon fiber electric bike scene, but BULLS isn’t pulling any punches with this competitor.

Meet the Stacyc (pronounced “stay-sick”), a motorized stability cycle for small children. One of my favorite aspects of technology is the ability to bring people together, and the Stacyc does exactly that. Although intimidating at first, this bike is an amazing remedy for children finding their cycling sea legs. Strangely enough, it’s also allowed me to move outside of my own comfort zone, as I’ve barely peeked into a thriving community just outside my everyday experience.

We had the pleasure of attending CoMotion LA: a fantastic event for transportation innovators, delegates, municipalities, vendors, and lawmakers to all connect and collaborate.
With conferences and meetings occurring at every hour, we were on the exhibition floor to bring you the new, the exciting, the quirky, and the bold new vehicles coming to a neighborhood near you.

William Shatner will tell you that Pedego has been synonymous with electric beach cruisers for a long time. Their folding Pedego Latch model is unique enough for special attention, and similar enough to the “Pedego feel.” However, in one special aspect I believe it outweighs its peers, both inside and outside Pedego’s lineup.

The Tower Beach Bum is not only easy only the wallet (being direct-to-consumer), it’s also easy on the eyes and backside as a purposeful beach cruiser. While it’s not on the forefront of e-bike tech, it’s value proposition is compelling enough to get Mark Cuban’s stamp of approval as a key investor in Tower.

If you’ve never heard of a friction drive electric bike system, there’s a good reason. Past systems have been described as “gutless,” “incomplete,” and “useless in the rain.” With this condemning backdrop, a small company from Quebec has shattered expectations with the feature-rich 300c from Alizeti.

The Batch Bicycles E-Commuter has accomplished the impossible: Create a Bosch Powered electric bike for less than $2,000. But on top of this, they’ve done it with local dealer support and made a functionally eloquent bike as well. But how did they do it? expand full story
