The Karmic Kyoto is a pedelec, or electric bike that uses a battery to increase pedaling power, that was designed specifically for women. According to Karmic, the California company behind the Kyoto, most bicycle companies simply "pink and shrink" their men's bicycles when releasing versions for women. The Karmic Kyoto is a completely new bicycle design with women in mind.
The Karmic Kyoto's swept handlebars and molded seat design are comfortable for female riders, while the rest of the bike's design incorporates the best that Karmic has to offer for any person, male or female. The bike's design features include pedal-assist via the Kyoto battery, Shimano gears and tracking equipment and standard equipment like fenders, an integrated headlight and taillight and rack mounts. The Kyoto comes in three colors: blue, white and violet.
