Leading electric bike company shows off its new Boomerang at Interbike
IRVINE, Calif., Sept. 9, 2014 — There will be a lot more smiles at Interbike this year, thanks to Pedego® Electric Bikes and its commitment to innovation. Among the many pleasures awaiting visitors at booth #5017 is the unveiling of Pedego’s new Boomerang, a bicycle that lives up to its name by making bike rides more accessible and fun for everyone. Riders know that no matter how far they bike, they’ll be able to make it home. The Boomerang’s extra-low step-thru design allows more people to climb aboard and cruise the bike paths in style. This elegant new electric bike — plus a slew of enhancements to current models — demonstrates how Pedego is miles ahead when it comes to building bikes that delight its customers.
The Boomerang, available to the public in red or black, boasts a state-of-the-art lithium ion battery, a variable-speed throttle, pedal assist computer offering 5 levels of automatic assist upon pedaling, and optional mag wheels that can carry up to 450 pounds. Despite all the power, riders can pedal this bike as much as they want, using its 7-speed Shimano gearing. But when they come across hills or headwinds, the electric motor is there to help them reach their destinations with a smile. Interbike’s outdoor test track — exposing riders to the desert heat — will surely prove this bike’s popularity among test riders.
Two other new product lines will also be showcased: The Pedego Ridge Rider Mountain Bike and The Pedego Stretch Cargo Bike.
Pedego is also taking this opportunity to showcase some groundbreaking refinements to its existing product lines. These include:
New longer range and more powerful 48-volt, 15 amp hour battery option available on most models;
Ultra-sophisticated display and control panel with a USB charging port on most models;
Upgraded motor and disk brakes on the Comfort Cruiser line, including the Tandem;
Seven speeds on the already popular Trail Tracker;
Even more choices in colors and sizes, including the new neon green and neon orange Interceptors, as well as the 24” Interceptor; and
Color-coordinated rims on most models.
The Pedego booth has drawn crowds in the past. And this year, visitors to Interbike can expect booth #5017 to be just as packed with fans. It’s worth wading through the sea of smiles to check out the new Boomerang and the other results of Pedego’s innovative vision. Interbike 2014 is taking place September 10–12, 2014, at the Mandalay Convention Center — 3950 Las Vegas Blvd South, Las Vegas, NV 89119.
