Thanks to advancements in the electric car space, eBikes have gotten a lift as well. The preponderance of pedal-assisted bicycles is apparent wherever you look, but many enthusiasts still favor their traditional man-powered units due to their lighter weight and favorability towards fitness.
However, electric bicycles certainly give many people the ability to partake in the activity if they’re otherwise unable. Likewise, eBikes allow riders to achieve a higher level of performance and can aid them when going uphill. But bicycles aren’t inexpensive and most casual users don’t want to shell out more money for an eBike, especially if they already have one that they’ve loved for years.
Enter PikaBoost from LIVALL, an eBike converter that gives any bicycle pedal assistance for more stability and power on the road. At just over 13” in length and weighing 6.6lbs, the all-in-one lithium-ion unit is easy to store and takes just 30 seconds to install without any tools necessary. What’s more, the IP66 waterproof rating and 18-mile range allow it to be a seamless extension of your everyday bike. Other features include a self-charging battery, an integrated USB port, regenerative braking, fall protection, and three smart riding modes.
Whereas most eBikes are going to be more expensive than your standard bike, the PikaBoost is quite the affordable add-on. Campaigning on Kickstarter until December 18, the device is available for just $299.
