Pedego Electric Recognized for Superior Quality & Design

Pedego®, the US-based electric bike company known for using top-of-the line components and sleek, comfortable styling is growing at an unprecedented rate and in the company’s brief two-year history has catapulted to the second place overall sales position for electric bike brands in the United States and earned a 5-star status on RatePoint.com.

Pedego was the combined efforts of two baby boomer entrepreneurs Don DiCostanzo and Terry Sherry both with a vision to differentiate Pedego from all other e-bikes. They achieved this through sleek styling, advanced technology, top-of-the-line components and comfortable designs. The Pedego brand offers fun for people of all ages with a specific emphasis on the 40+ market. The zero-emissions bikes offer up to 30 miles per charge and pose significantly lower environmental impact than cars.

According to Pedego CEO, Don DiCostanzo, “We always knew that the best way to get people back on a bike was to create a comfortable ride with reliable parts and components. Everything from the Shimano gears to triple-coated durable finishes are among the best available in the industry. Our bikes are top-of-the line which is the main reason Tommy Bahama chose Pedego to design their line of electric bikes. Pedego offers Comfort Cruisers with powerful brushless, gearless hub motor and lightweight removable lithium battery pack that can run up to 30 miles per charge and can be recharged in about an hour. In addition, Pedego also has the Interceptor e- bike with a 500 watt, 48-volt battery and a proprietary electromagnetic motor. We will also be introducing new concepts at this year’s Interbike, September 14-16 in Las Vegas.”

Pedego recently signed two prominent distribution agreements with Clean Wheels, Ltd for all of Europe and Voltage Bikes of Canada.

When asked why he chose to distribute Pedego, Mike Clyde, of Canada’s Voltage Bikes explained, “We were looking for a high-quality brand, but one which also had some kind of ‘x-factor’ to differentiate it from the ever increasing number of electric bikes on the market. With Pedego, we found a range of bikes that excited us. These bikes look great! The customer response to the Pedego style has been wonderful … this is a bike that turns heads! But without the build quality to back it up, the equation wouldn’t be complete. Chatting to existing Pedego dealers and reading online forums confirmed that Pedego has an excellent reputation for reliability and service. After putting the bike through its paces on the steep streets of Nelson, BC, we were sold. We tested the Classic Cruiser and it was a joy to ride! Based on the initial responses from potential dealers, we expect the number of Canadian Pedego dealers will be increasing rapidly over the next few months. We are extremely excited to be bringing the Pedego brand to Canada, and think that the great success that the bikes have had in the States will be mirrored here.”

Dan Robinson of Clean Wheels, Ltd based in London commented, “I was initially attracted to the product line through their website because it was so different from any other electric bike company. The entire process from our initial contact with owners Don and Terry to delivery of the first Pedego bikes reinforced that this was a company with high quality products and high integrity.”
