They will have their current line up of fat, mountain, cargo, road, and commuter bikes along with some new models that will be available soon!
The following are a few of the Felt Electric bikes that will be available at the Expo events.
The Felt BRUHAUL is all about hauling cargo. This e-cargo features 24” wheels front and rear for easy maneuverability in congested areas and a solid frame for handling heavy cargo.
This is the VERZAe, step thru commuter style e-bike for an easy get on and go ride!
I recently had a chance to ask Megan Duehring at Felt Electric some questions about Felt Electric, their new bikes, and their participation in the Expo:
Pete: Megan, could you give us some background on Felt Electric?
Megan: Felt Electric began working on product in Europe in 2010, partnering with Bosch, and released product in the Europe in 2011 and the USA in August 2014. We are a bike company at the core, so we knew our line needed to be pedal assist only, and Bosch was the obvious partner. We focus on cities that have excellent cycling infrastructure and study how people transport themselves. We want to enhance their lives with our products and design our bikes around it.
Pete: Why is it important for Felt Electric to demo bikes at the Electric Bike Expo events?
Megan: Felt Electric is a group of people who are passionate about getting more consumers on bikes and changing how they view the electric category. We want to extend our enthusiasm to consumers and let them experience for themselves how electric bikes can not only be fun, but can also be used as a tool for transportation and commuting. We feel our carefully engineered frames in conjunction with the drive systems from Bosch and Shimano STePS provides riders with the best experience possible on an ebike, and the Electric Bike Expo will give them a chance to see that.
Pete: The Felt Electric line up is impressive with multiple fat bikes, mountain bikes, commuter/sport bikes, and a cargo bike. In addition, Felt Electric bikes are some of the lighter e-bikes on the market. Could you tell us more about the Felt E-bikes that will be available for test ride at the Expo events?
Megan: We’re glad to announce that we will have at least one of each model at the Electric Bike Expo, including our new Shimano STePS commuter models. Both our Bosch and STePS powered bikes are pedal assist only, so consumers will feel the push of the motors engage while they are riding the bike as they would a non-electric model. Our line includes 3 commuting bikes, 4 mountain bikes, and one cargo bike.
Pete: Can you share any news on the new 2016 Felt Electric models?
Megan: We’ve updated all bikes from 2015 to display an even better lineup for 2016. We’re very excited to bring the BruHaul to the expo and show each city what’s possible for parents and kids. Each city has its own different set of circumstances, and the BruHaul is able to meet each challenge. We’re also thrilled to have consumers try our new Shimano STePS bikes and expose people to our electric experience.
Thanks to Megan Duehring for taking time to answer those questions!
