For those of you who are familiar with the long standing

be in for a shock with this article. Polaris, the world leader

bicycling communities by storm.

Polaris' new eBikes are designed for those riders who want
a little extra excitement in both their on-road and off-road
commutes. Being touted as bicycles that are geared like a
sports car, the new Polaris eBikes are set to change the industry's
expectations for electric bikes.
When consumers think about electric bikes, they think slow
performing, heavy bicycles that are not very attractive to
look at. Polaris has smashed that notion with their new eBikes
saying that they will be offering in a wide array of eye-popping
colors and graphics designed to suit many rider's personal
Are these eBikes just another pretty face designed to empty
your wallet and leave you unimpressed? Not at all! In fact,
these new bikes from Polaris and partner, EVantage, offer
more technological advancements in every bike than you will
find in any other mode of human powered transportation on
the market today.
With computer processor-based Gear Speed Technology
that revolutionizes the dynamics of power-assisted cycling
with intuitive responsiveness to the controls and gears that
are programmed to provide the appropriate torque or acceleration
based on the terrain and riding style, you would be hard pressed
to find anything else like it.
Each Polaris eBike is equipped with Perpetual Arc Regeneration
which enables the rider to generate power to the battery while
pedaling via four different methods:
- On flat or downhill terrain to capture up to 100 watts
of charging power.
- Backpedaling brake assist, gradually slowing the bike
down and capturing residual energy for regeneration.
- Using the electronically controlled hydraulic disc brakes.
- Pedaling above 21 or 29 mph, depending on the model.
The advanced Active Trail Technology delivers whisper-quiet
power for acceleration up hills, and automatically adjusts
back to Regeneration Mode on flat or downhill terrain. With
speeds up to 28 miles per hour and a range of up to 50 miles
per charge without activating the regeneration features, these
new Polaris eBikes can take you everywhere you want to go
and bring you back without breaking a sweat.
