Inside The Cycleurope Alter Bike
To understand just why this masterpiece from Cycleurope,
which is being launched under the brand name Gitane, is being
raved about by industry experts and enthusiasts alike, you
have to take a look at what this e-bike is bringing to the
table. One of the first incredible features to go along with
this bike is the fact that it doesn't use a plug-in infrastructure.
Gone are the days of waiting forever and a day for your battery
to charge. Say goodbye to that plug-in concept that while
nice can also become a hassle in a hurry. This incredibly
lightweight bike functions by utilizing energy cartridges.
These easy-to-recycle canisters use hydrogen chemical storage.
This is what's going to power your bike, and the cartridges
themselves are incredibly simple in terms of design and usage.
Replacing them is a snap, and using them can be personalized
to the individual range needs of a specific user. Cycleurope
seems to be pretty committed to the idea that you're not going
to have an e-bike experience like this anywhere else.
France X 3 ...
Three leading French firms were involved in the Alter Bike's
creation. Cycleurope worked with both Pragma Industries and
Ventec to create this incredible machine. The result of this
collaboration between three powerful companies is the first
industrial bike in the world that will make use of hydrogen
The hope is to create something that utilizes technology
that will combine form and function in a way that has never
truly been attempted before on such an ambitious scale. Although
the bike will not be available to consumers until 2016, it
would certainly seem from any review to come down the pike
so far that the three companies have succeeded brilliantly.
Not only is this bike a flawless piece of machinery in terms
of its engineering, the overall design has not had to sacrifice
a thing. What this means is that not only does this bike run
beautifully, but it also looks really cool, too. E-bike fans
definitely have something to look forward to.
