This is a unisex bike, without a crossbar so great for those with problems in their joints. It is well reviewed, and two points are particularly important – its extended charge life battery, and its maximum carrying weight of 19 stones. I found a good description at a retailer, Graham Goode, where it sells for £1125. It is on special offer for £999 along with the Glide 2 Sport at Off the Rock Bikes (see local dealers).
Glide 2 electric bike comes with its own battery charger. LiFePo4 rechargeable electric bike batteries are technically more advanced than the tradational heavy sealed lead acid SLA and Li-ion batteries. A LiFePo4 battery lasts longer, accepts a charge easier, is lighter, more powerful, works down to -10 degrees C and has lowest lifetime battery costs.
Glide2 has a 36 Volt 10 amp LifePo4 extended life battery integrated into the carrier system mounted above the rear mudguard, away from dirt, salt and water, giving more protection from the weather than most electric bike designs.
Modular electrical system for convenient and lower service costs.
