Biking to work is great for your health and the environment, although showing up drenched in sweat is a decided faux pas. That’s why electric bikes are starting to become more popular – and the new Gi Bike pushes the envelope with a clever folding design that easily fits in any cubicle or storage closet. The full size electric bike has a lithium-ion battery that gives it a 40 mile range on days when you just want to coast in to work.
The lightweight Gi Bike is designed for riders that live in dense urban environments like San Francisco and New York. It comes with lots of cool features like smartphone integration, an anti-theft safety lock, a USB port to charge your phone and lights that automatically turn on at night.
One of the best parts is that the Gi Bike can do something that most eBikes can’t – it folds down in just three seconds, making it easier to stow in a small apartment or office. Gi Bike has announced that it is planning to launch a Kickstarter campaign soon to raise funds for the production of its new electric bike.
