The Rise of E-Bikes

City-bicycle use is on the up, and the e-bike (electric bike) could be the perfect mode of mass metropolitan transport for a sustainably minded future. Powered by advances in technology and maturing consumer interest, the e-bike may be poised for a global breakthrough. Pike Research, an independent clean-tech analyst, predicts 10% annual growth globally every year until 2016.

Clean, friendly design that appeals to young and old is the focus for these new urban machines, and a more refined, leisure-oriented e-bike is beginning to emerge. In-roads are also being made into the off-road and performance bike sectors, further expanding appeal. Stylus explains how the bicycle is being reimagined.
