Electric Commuter Bikes

Ampler Bikes' Three New Models Appeal to the Urban Cyclist

— February 21, 2018 — Eco
Estonian-based e-bike startup Ampler Bikes has returned to the market with three new bikes built for the daily commuter. The company, which was first founded in 2016, has already shipped more than 800 smart bikes to 21 countries. This new line of bikes features the company's pedal-assist and were created with heavy incorporation of customer feedback. The newest models from Ampler Bikes are known as the Curt, Stout and Stellar. All the models are handmade in Tallinn with an estimated range of 43.5 miles on a single charge.

The Curt is the sportiest of the trio and features straight handlebars and deep rims. The carbon forks drastically drop the weight of the bike down to 31.1 pounds and can come equipped with mudguards and rear carrier. The Curt is available in both a single- and 10-speed versions with an optional Gates Carbon belt Drive.

The Ampler Bikes Stellar and Stout are the more city-friendly commuting bikes and are slightly sturdier when compared to the Curt. Both bikes weigh 36.2 pounds and feature wide tires, hydraulic disk brakes and nine gears. The Stellar differs from all the other models with a step-through frame, making it easier to mount and dismount.

Industry Implications
1. E-bike Manufacturing - Manufacturers can embrace the demand for electric commuter bikes and capitalize on the growing urban cycling trend by producing high-quality, durable and customizable e-bikes.
2. Smart Mobility Solutions - Cities and technology companies can seize the disruptive innovation opportunity in the smart mobility sector by integrating electric commuter bikes as a sustainable and efficient mode of transportation.
3. Bike Accessories and Components - There is a market opportunity for companies to develop and manufacture accessories and components that enhance the performance, comfort, and safety of electric commuter bikes.
