The Ultimate eBike
Function and designer form take Gogoro’s new range to the front of the pack.
Gogoro, the Taiwanese startup best known for vibrant electric scooters, is ready to pedal a new mode of transport.
Stepping into the burgeoning electric bike market are the Eeyo 1 and 1S Electric, a pair of Kevlar reinforced carbon-fibre framed rides that standout from the dreary pack.
Both come powered by the Eeyo smartwheel – an all-in-one digital drive that neatly integrates the battery, sensors and smart connectivity into a self-contained hub.
At 12.4kg for the Eeyo 1 and 11.8kg for the 1S, both designs have cut the fat, shaving weight by eliminating the seat tube and using aforementioned carbon fibre wherever possible.
The Eeyo 1 & 1S reach a full charge in 2.5 hours and are capable of 30km/h with pedal assistance (no pulling back the throttle here), while boasting a 64-kilometre range in ‘sport’ and 88 kilometres in ‘eco’.
The Eeyo 1 is available in ‘Cloud Blue’ and ‘Lobster Orange’ while the 1S comes in so-called ‘Warm White’.
Prices from approx. $5800 and $6800 respectively.
