My wife and I commute to work every day on our Optibikes faster and cheaper that we would in cars… and never waste time and money stopping at gas stations

Rock Solid, Made in USA Performance

Optibike is the only electric bike made in the USA. It flies up hills and is rock solid, even a high speeds.

Proven 100 mile+ Range

Only the Optibike electric bike carries enough energy to travel 100 miles on a charge, and we have proven  it. At the 2006 Tour De Sol Electric Vehicle race held in upstate New York, Craig Weakley rode an Optibike 104 miles in less than 4 hours over a course of rolling hills with minimal pedaling. (100 mile range requires optional Touring battery)
