VANCOUVER, BC – OHM Cycles is pleased to announce that its very first orders for its 2012 electric commuter and mountain bikes – now 15% lighter and able to power longer range rides than last year’s models – are being shipped to stores this month. The new e-bike models, which feature the latest BionX technology, will be available to test-ride and purchase in Canada, the United States, and parts of Europe.
The 2012 OHM electric bike models feature a Superlight Bionx 350HT SL motor and extended range Li-ion battery pack, which means that the e-bikes are both lighter and more powerful than previous models. The new motor is 25% lighter while still delivering the same standard of performance that OHM has built its reputation on, and the battery pack equips the new OHM e-bikes with the most powerful drive system on the market.
“We can’t wait to get our new e-bikes out to our customers so they can experience for themselves what a difference our lighter, more efficient new e-bike models will make to their cycling,” said Michael DeVisser, CEO of OHM Cycles. “Our e-bikes are already known for having the best hill climbing capabilities and acceleration. With the technological improvements we have incorporated into our 2012 e-bike models, OHM riders will be able to cycle longer and more comfortably than ever before.”
OHM electric bikes are the product of over 7 years of research and testing to create the first electric bikes custom-designed to suit the North American market. They are available in three styles: the Urban XU700 in Matte Silver or Midnight Blue, the Special Edition Urban XU700 in Forest Green, and the Sport XS750 in Matte Black or Burgundy Red.
The new OHM e-bikes will be available for purchase through the OHM Factory Store and OHM Authorized Dealers. Customers who pre-ordered their bikes will receive the first shipments.
