Fierce electric fat-tire bike soars over sand, gravel, ice and snow with cruiser comfort
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Dec. 14, 2017— Pedego® Electric Bikes, the Number 1 electric bike brand in the United States, today announced the new Pedego Trail Tracker Gorilla Edition electric bike. Combining the power of a fat-tire bike and the comfort of a beach cruiser, the Pedego Trail Tracker Gorilla Edition is swinging into high adventure in time for holiday gift giving.
The Trail Tracker Pedego Gorilla Edition boasts a powerful 48-volt 14-amp-hour battery and four-inch-wide tires that empower riders to traverse sand, snow, mud or gravel at speeds up to 20 miles per hour. It will carry riders up to 40 miles on a single charge. Pedego’s sturdy 500-watt motor delivers excitement with the twist of the throttle. Five levels of automatic pedal assist fuel the excitement. Shimano 7-speed shifting provides the ultimate control, on paved paths or off-road, no matter what the terrain.
Yet, for all its wild nature, the Trail Tracker Gorilla Edition is also a great street bike, designed for comfort with cruiser-style handlebars that deliver an upright and relaxed ride. Its oversized saddle ensures comfort for any size rider. Its aluminum alloy suspension post takes the bumps in stride. The Trail Tracker Gorilla Edition’s 70-inch-long matte black frame can be accented with optional rim colors in black, blue, red or lime green. It is retail priced from $3,595.
“When your wild side is calling, you need a Pedego Trail Tracker Gorilla Edition bike,” said Pedego Electric Bikes CEO and co-founder Don DiCostanzo. “Created in direct response to consumer demand, the new Trail Tracker Gorilla Edition brings adventure home.”
Pedego electric bikes have 500-watt hub motors that help riders cruise distances of 20 to 60 miles without getting tired and sweaty. The twist-and-go throttle gives riders instant manual control over their speeds while Pedal Assist automatically adds power to their pedaling. Riders love Pedego’s California-style cruisers, including the Pedego Platinum Interceptor, a fully loaded cruiser bike with a 48-volt battery that propels riders with extra power; the Pedego Interceptor, which boasts the same powerful 48-volt battery; and Pedego’s Comfort Cruiser, which is powered by a 36-volt battery for gentle help with hills. Also available are the sleek City Commuter; the sturdy Stretch cargo bike; the Trail Tracker fat-tire bike for riding on sand, gravel and snow; the Ridge Rider electric mountain bike; and the Latch, an ingenious folding bike, designed for portability and convenience. Other models include the electric tandem bike for two and the accessible Pedego Boomerang with an ultra-low step-thru frame. Pedego also offers the Airstream model for camping devotees. Free test rides are available at every Pedego store.
