Electric bikes are just like regular bicycles but with the addition of a pedal-assist motor and battery that give you a power boost when you ride. There are many different types, but think of them as a way to supercharge your riding experience.
WHY RIDE AN ELECTRIC BIKE?
E-bikes can help you ride faster and farther with less effort than a regular bike. Whether you want to commute to work, cruise around town, or get in a workout on hilly roads and trails, electric bikes are a total game changer that will make you want to ride more and more.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF ELECTRIC BIKES?
Electric Commuter Bikes
The most popular category of E-bike. Meant for cruising your city streets, and easy bike paths. These bikes are efficient, fun, and can get you to and from work with incredible ease. Demon’s Tronio is a great Step-Thru (easy to get on / mount)
Electric Road Bikes
Lightweight and performance oriented. These E-bikes are fast and are perfect for road cycling enthusiasts who want a little extra push for longer distances and bigger climbs. Demon’s coming out with two new e-bikes to fulfill these needs. Our Lightweight City Road Bike “Siixxx” named after Toronto’s shortened area code, and our new Touring bike “Phantom” made for extra long distances (over 100km’s!).
Electric Mountain Bikes (E-MTB)
These bikes are a blast on dirt trails, and off road. Some E-mtb’s are equipped with Fat Tires (like our Thunderbolt SL series) to conquer any terrain, and some are meant for tight technical turning down those steep mountainous paths (Like our Outlaw).
WHAT IS A BIKE RIDE SHARE?
A transport service in which bicycles are made available for shared use to individuals on a short-term basis. Many bike share systems allow people to borrow a bike from a "dock" and return it at another dock belonging to the same system. Docks are special bike racks that lock the bike, and only release it by computer control. The user enters payment information, and the computer unlocks a bike. The user returns the bike by placing it in the dock, which locks it in place.
WHY USE A BIKE SHARE PROGRAM?
The benefits of bike sharing include transport flexibility, reductions to vehicle emissions, health benefits, reduced congestion and fuel consumption, and financial savings for individuals. But the most special quality of public bicycles is the idea of sharing, and creating a greater community.
