That's why you need an electric bike
Here's the deal: We're very, very enthusiastic about electric bikes.
But we know there are a lot of skeptics out there who think they just don't need one. Maybe they're hardcore cyclists who are wary of shaking things up, or maybe they're people who rode a lot as kids but lost interest as the years went by.
If you're one of those people who are still on the fence when it comes to electric bikes, we designed the TroxusSkyHopper electric metro bike with you in mind. It's affordable, easy to use, and more like a traditional bike than anything else in our lineup.
Here are a few reasons why we think the latest Troxus creation will convince you it's worth going electric
1. It can help you commit to a life of cycling.
The TroxsSkyHopper is designed to look more like a traditional human-powered "acoustic" bike than anything else in the company's lineup.
Have you decided that you want to spend more time on your bike and less time in your car?
You may start out enthusiastic, but it's likely that you'll lose momentum after a few weeks. You realize that sweating through a morning meeting or riding home after a particularly grueling day isn't worth it - especially if it means going up a hill.
This is where electrification makes a huge difference.
With an electric bike, you can get to the office effortlessly. What's more, there's evidence that you're far more likely to ride it every day than a regular acoustic bike.
According to a 2018 study by the National Institute of Transportation and Communities, those who switched from an acoustic bike to an e-bike were more than three times as likely to ride it every day compared to riders who stuck with a standard bike. Of those who did not ride a bicycle at all as adults, 93.5 percent found themselves riding an e-bike weekly or daily.
The study's subjects reported that this was largely because e-bikes enabled them to conquer hills, travel longer distances, and help them achieve more practical purposes than regular bikes - all key factors that will help you commit to the bike life!
2. E-bikes are easier to keep healthy.
Equipped with a high-torque 750W motor, the TroxsuSkyHopper makes easy work of very long bike trails and daunting hills. It has an innovative approximately 7-pound battery that is compact, yet carefully designed to still achieve a range of more than 60 miles on a single charge.
New research shows that electric bikes provide almost as much exercise as riding a regular old bike.
How is this possible? You can't really work out if you're not sweating on your clothes or panting down the road, right?
According to multiple studies, yes, you totally can!
Researchers at Brigham Young University recently had 33 amateur cyclists ride 6 miles on e-bikes with pedal assistance and conventional bikes.
The average heart rate of the riders assigned to e-bikes was 145 beats per minute, just 10 beats less than traditional cyclists, and well within what public health professionals would describe as the "zone of intensity.
"Those who use e-bikes still have higher heart rates and enjoy their experience," said BYU professor Benjamin Crookston. "I think it's a game changer for people who find cycling too difficult. It makes this important form of exercise available to the broader community."
Another study, published in the journal Interdisciplinary Perspectives in Transportation Research, also found that because e-bikers rode further than their acoustic cyclists, they ended up completing about 9.2 percent more minutes of physical activity per week.
3. E-bikes help you get around anywhere, anytime.
As a seven-speed bike, the TroxusSkyHopper is designed for high performance at a low cost.
Riding a bike can be daunting, especially when you see all the spandex-clad riders riding their beefed-up, super-expensive bikes along the trails.
You may be wondering how you can compete, especially as a newcomer who may only have a helmet and a pair of regular shorts.
Fortunately, when you use an electric bike, you don't have to compete. You can be yourself.
You'll find that with a motor to help you pick up speed, you won't have to spend hours on expensive clothing that will make you more aerodynamic. Other than a helmet and a good bike lock, you won't have to spend more than $1200 to get up and running. And if you have any questions along the way, you can always get some clear, non-judgmental advice from our product support team.
That's because our e-bikes are designed with accessibility in mind. We're committed to ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to feel the joy of riding a bike, regardless of their level of experience.
4. Have Fun
The Troxus SkyHopper weighs about 55 pounds, which ultimately makes an electric bike possible for those who live in elevatorless apartments.
The truth is, you open yourself up to a lot more fun when you use an electric vehicle.
It's not just because e-bikes help you go further and faster, but because they are the ultimate tool to help you live a convenient life.
As you can see, riders all over the world have found some creative uses for our bikes, from acrobats to Texas "biker" gangs, from retired truck drivers to NFL pros, from filmmakers to pilots.
The big question is, once you get yours, what will you do?
