stretch-passengerPedego’s team of masterminds has created the best in engineering and design. Starting at an MSRP of $3,495, Pedego Stretch boasts a lot of extras, including an attached front rack for terrific cargo-carrying stability. You can add optional interchangeable cargo accessories to reconfigure this bike for passengers, long loads or wide loads. And for super comfort and safety of additional passengers, you can add the optional wooden rear deck and wheel skirts to protect little feet from rear wheel spokes. As with all Pedego electric bikes, this model is also about comfort. Traditional city-style handlebars feel natural and comfortable to most riders. The quick-release handlebar stem allows easy adjustments for that perfect fit. A deluxe saddle with a suspension seat post provides extra cushioning to keep riders smiling. For an extra smooth finish, this bike rolls marvelously along on Kevlar-lined premium balloon tires.

While the design is fantastic, the engineering could knock Superman’s socks off. The bike’s mighty 500-watt geared motor combines forces with its powerful 48-volt battery integrated behind the seat post to help riders conquer the most wicked hills and headwinds. The stretch comes standard with 13 amp hours so you’ll arrive at your destination confidently. An upgrade is available to an amazing 17 amp hours for longer hauls down the road.

It adds motorized thrust automatically while you pedal. The easy-to-read LCD display shows all the information you need and has a USB charging port for cell phones and other accessories. The bike even comes standard with front and rear lights as well as fenders. The bike comes in your choice of Ruby Red, Olive Green or Gloss Black. All you’ll need is a matching superhero cape as you fly that cargo down the road!
