To better serve consumers who are looking for micro mobility solutions as an alternative to traditional modes of transportation, Panasonic collaborated with leading bicycle manufacturer Kent International Inc. on a range of electric-assist bicycles.

The new electric bicycles will be launched under two brands with three models at CES 2019: the Univega USA Touring eBike, a Van Dessel Gravel eBike and the Van Dessel Mountain eBike. These e-bike models were specifically created to meet the demand for electric-assist bicycles for the purposes of recreation, fitness and commuting.

The 'Passepartout' Van Dessel Gravel eBike and the 'Captain Shred' Van Dessel Mountain eBike were designed around the new Panasonic GX0 motor and notably, the latter is set to race in the first-ever Union Cycliste Internationale-sanctioned eMountain bike world championship series.
