The release of the Predator and Bullshark electric bicycle models are set to take ebikes mainstream. With head turning good looks, high end components, and smooth performance to match. Most people have felt it is not “cool” to be riding on an electric bike, until now, the Predator is an ebike that people actually want to ride. This years 2013 release of the Reef Bullshark and Reef Predator electric bike models look just like a regular bicycle With Samsung lithium battery technology hidden inside the bicycle frame, giving consumers the sleek design, and reliability they have been looking for.
For alternative green methods of transport to develop into mainstream culture, we need to give the Australian consumers what they want. Riders don’t want everyone to know they are riding with electric power, and they don’t want chunky Chinese batteries and awkward looking frame designs. This has been a huge limiting factor stopping ebikes from getting into the mainstream market. With the latest game changing e bike technology developed by Reef Bikes Australia this is now possible.
Electric bicycle riders can cruise along effortlessly using the pedal assist sensor, get up hills without pedaling using the hand twist throttle, travel longer distances faster, all while looking like a regular bicycle! This technology is great for commuting to work, without getting stuck in the peak hour traffic, and avoiding parking and congestion issues in major cities.
The Reef Predator is the pinnacle of electric bikes, with high end head turning components, monster dirt bike zoom suspension, dual high beam front spotlights, 2” LCD screen display on the dash, 26” x 2.5” fat dirt bike tyres, Shimano Alivio gearsets, Samsung lithium battery hidden inside the frame and a 500W offroad only motor will give you loads of power and acceleration. The Reef Bullshark is the street legal version of the Predator, using the same frame technology with the Samsung lithium battery hidden in the frame.
For many years now electric bicycle consumers have been asking for reliability, hassle free maintenance, performance and style, all at an affordable price. Instead the market has been inundated with e-bike companies pop up overnight and disappear just as fast. This has affected the electric bicycle market, and has stopped it from going mainstream. But with this years vast improvements in technology we have seen more and more regular bicycle stores get interested in electric bikes now.
