All our new bikes are supplied with super lightweight Lithium ion batteries. If you already own a Powabyke they can be supplied as an upgrade for all old bikes.
Service life is greatly improved with this technology and whilst the batteries appear initally expensive they do last three times longer than the standard lead acid battery.
Lithium batteries, with the promise of extended range, extended life and easier portability, are NOW AVAILABLE . Tests at the University of Bath indicate that the lithium batteries will totally transform the performance of Powabyke machines. Weighing in at just4kg – less than half the weight of the current lead-acid battery - order yours now.
No modifications are needed to existing bikes for upgrading to lithium. The only thing that you will need is a new charger as the old ones are not compatible.
Combined with new lightweight alloy frames, the total weight of a Powabyke with a lithium battery will fall to around 28kg. All of our Euro models now come with alloy frames. This means that they weigh 4kg less than the old steel frames.
Powabyke’s unique electric battery powered tricycle – the Powatryke Cruiser – has seen a dramatic spike in sales this September in response to a feature in Saga magazine, which has a senior 50+ reader profile and a readership in excess of a million.
