It’s official, Optibike has now been building and selling electric bikes for 10 years!
It seems like yesterday when we loaded our first Optibike 400 into the waiting truck for its trip to South Africa.
Optibike is now the oldest manufacturer of electric bikes in America! Today we still focus on quality and performance first. We strive to be the best, not the biggest and results show it.
Now we have sold bikes all over the world from Russia to Indonesia to Brazil. In all, people in over 28 countries have bought an Optibike.
While Optibike set the standard for the electric bike industry of what performance and quality meant, what always was most fulfilling to me was how we changed peoples lives.
We have had people lose 80 pounds, end their use of prescription drugs, rekindle their relationships and have the time of their life as they remembered what is was like to be a a kid again and feel completely free and energized.
Over the years, Optibike has been featured on ESPN, CNN, The Today Show, National Geographic Adventurer, and in The NY Times.
Optibike has always been ahead of its time. In fact, our first model, the 400 in 2007 has higher performance than the popular European systems today. But we didn’t sit still, as the R15 has 3.8 times the power of the 2007 model!
Our Electric Bikes are custom built with artisan quality one at a time, and they are the worlds fastest and longest range High Performance Electric bikes available.
Over the years our product line has expanded and we currently offers electric bikes for commuters, performance enthusiasts, and off roaders. We are the only company to offer a diverse line of bikes in different power, performance and price categories.
I feel proud when many of our customers are ordering their 4th and 5th Optibike. They started with the first Optibike released and are now on the latest R15. This says a lot about Optibike quality and performance.
I just spoke with a customer who has the original 2007 400 with Nickel Metal Hydride battery and it is still running strong after 10 years.
Some of the highlights of the last ten years are below. I hope you enjoy reading them. They have brought back some good memories to me.
