At Eurobike 2019, LEVA-EU Member Pendix presents the Pendix eDrive150, a new retrofit system that converts bicycles into e-bikes. The Pendix eDrive150start is smaller and lighter than the two other system versions eDrive300 and eDrive500. With only € 999 the eDrive150 is also very affordable and ideal for commuters that are looking for electric tailwind during their journey to work. Functions and design of the system have been streamlined and reduced to the absolute basics. At 1.4 kg, the battery is a real lightweight and only slightly larger than a standard half-liter beverage can.
The new battery is ideal for short distances or cyclists who only need punctual support. “Most commuters don’t run out of battery power in a day, so we decided to develop this smaller and much lighter version of the Pendix system and offer it as an alternative,” explains Thomas Herzog, co-founder and CEO of Pendix.
Commuters in Germany cycle an average of 9.2 kilometers to their job. The new battery has a range of about 28 kilometers. “Time pressure, looking for a parking space and traffic jams mean stress,” explains Thomas Herzog, “and we want to make the journey to work a little more relaxed. Many of our customers drive to work with electric support and use the return journey as a workout.”
Eurobike takes place in Friedrichshafen from 4 to 7 September 2019. Dealers and end customers will have the opportunity to test the Pendix eDrive150 for the first time.
