pedego joins the emtb movement with their own dual suspension e-bike; and it looks good!
Elevate To The Highest Heights
While not officially announced by Pedego as of yet, you’ll find the upcoming eMTB in the ‘Products’ page of their website. The Elevate “…will take you to the highest heights – sporting premium components, cutting edge technology, and fine-tuned frame geometry.” This is quoted on the website along with two pictures and specifications.
The Californian company has been in the eBike scene for a long time, and most notably known for their cruisers and cargo electric bikes. However they have jumped on the eMTB train and produced the Elevate. From the specification sheet, the eBike will feature respectable components and definitely has been designed with proper research. It seems to feature modern geometry will quality parts and a high end Shimano E8000 mid drive motor.
While there isn’t an exact release date, it will be available around April and retail at $5,494USD. This puts it in a very competitive bracket as the common higher end eBikes retail around this much as well. It’ll be interesting to see the response for the bike when it officially releases.
