Ever get stuck in traffic and wish there was an easier, faster way? Yeah, us too….every day. Flash Bikes revolutionizes the way people commute with an affordable, safe, fast, and functional electric bike. To prove it to you, look at their indiegogo crowdfunding success. Although less than one-third of companies who crowdfund actually meet the campaign goal (Source), Flash Bikes exceeded its fundraising goal by 668%. Led by Guitar Hero founder, Kai Huang (Chairman of Flash Bikes), this venture is the real, electric deal! As of this month, Flash Bikes started shipping (two months early…another feat for an indiegogo campaign).
What makes Flash Bikes different? For one, all the features you could ever want at an affordable price ($1199): power, front and rear lighting, touchscreen controls, alarm system, turn signals, and the ability to connect directly to your smartphone. You can check out all the specs on the interactive website.
Flash Bikes provides three core values:
- Reduce fatigue by 65%
- Boost energy by 20%
- Reduce the risk of heart disease by 50%
- Improve quality of sleep
- Relieve stress and improve your mood
Replace just 10 miles of car trips each week, and you’ll prevent 471 lbs of CO2 from being released into the atmosphere every year.
There are plenty of better uses for the thousands of dollars you spend every year on gas, parking and car maintenance.
Backed by market research, Flash Bikes helps you realize the value of riding an electric bike by estimating your individual impact. The “Estimate Your Impact” feature on the website allows you to input two variables: (1) how often you would ride and, (2) on average, how many miles per trip. These variables calculate your savings and environmental impact. Double whammy!
Check it out and let us know what you think! We are excited to share this awesome venture.
