The EVO Street is a fully decked out commuter style e-bike with a very low step thru frame.
The Easy Motion Nitro City is a speed pedelec (up to 28 mph with pedal assist only) with a full set up of accessories for commuting.
The Neo Volt is the compact folding commuter with the battery integrated into the main frame for a very clean look.
Steve Lindenau is the CEO of Easy Motion USA and I had a chance to catch up with him about Easy Motion and the Expo:
Pete: Easy Motion is a branch of BH, a Spanish company with a long history in the traditional bicycle industry. Could you tell us more about BH and the Easy Motion brand of electric bikes?
Steve: Easy Motion is very fortunate to be a part of BH. A competitive advantage that Easy Motion has is that it draws from BH’s over 100 years of quality bike building experience and innovation. This has helped Easy Motion to become one of the fastest growing ebike companies in North America.
Pete: Why is it important for Easy Motion to exhibit and demo e-bikes at the Electric Bike Expo events?
Steve: The potential demand for ebikes in our market is astronomical! The problem is that a lot of people have never seen one, heard of one, or tried one. I equate it to when Apple launched the iPad. People did not realized that they needed one until they tried it.
Pete: Could you tell us more about what makes Easy Motion e-bikes unique?
Steve: It seems like every ebike company has their own design philosophy. What makes Easy Motion unique is that we really try to hide the fact that our bikes are electric bikes. We try to make then appear to look like regular bikes. That is why our slogan is “Easy Motion: The Electric Bike That Doesn’t Look Like One”.
Pete: Easy Motion has an impressive number of electric bikes! Could you give us an overview of the Easy Motion e-bikes that will be available for test ride at the Electric Bike Expo events?
Steve: We will have a great cross section of our bikes available for the Expo, including our popular commuting models, full suspension mountain bikes, AWD (all wheel drive) bikes, single speed, and hybrid bikes.
Pete: Can you share any news of the new 2016 Easy Motion electric bikes?
Steve: New items for 2016 include:
Competitive ebikes under $2000 called “Easygo”.
A GPS, anti theft system compatible most 2016 models.
A bluetooth app which you can control your bike with your smart phone. It is loaded with features.
An AWD fat bike.
Better, more informative displays on all bikes.
Thanks to Steve Lindenau for taking time to answer those questions!
