“This electric trailer pushes your bike.” That’s the Ridekick tagline for their inventive electric-powered bike trailer designed to make bicycles zoom off at up to 19 miles per hour. The trailer has the potential to extend the practicality of using bicycles as primary transportation, as the Ridekick removes the need to peddle a cycle and provides space to carry goods. Could the days of balancing grocery bags on our handlebars be over?
The Ridekick is easily attachable to most bicycles and it contains a 500 watt battery-driven motor that can get the rider from A to B on a single charge – but only so long as B is under 15 miles from A.
The range may sound a bit short, but since this is the first electric trailer available commercially, the potential to develop the design is certainly there.
