Worlds First High Performance Electric Bike for Women unveiled

April 22, 2009; Boulder, CO: The Optibike Helia is the electric bike designed for women, its lightweight, safe, and reliable- without sacrificing style or performance.

The Helia is capable of 50 mile rides and is loaded with options to ensure years of comfortable use on road and off. Air filled front and rear Fox brand suspension keep the Helia light and responsive in bumpy conditions while the hydraulic disk brakes work equally well in wet or dry conditions.

The advanced lithium ion battery is the largest and lightest (per ah) battery offered in an electric bicycle. This battery is warranted for 3 years/30,000 miles and costs only pennies to fill with electricity from a standard wall outlet.

The Helia is available in 4 colors: Optibike Red, Twilight Blue, OB Silver, and of course, Hibiscus Pink with a flower design hand painted by a local artist.

“In 2008 we had more couples than ever call us for a pair of electric bikes- so they could spend time together riding. For women looking for a perfect fitting electric bike with long range- there was nothing available, so we developed the Helia,” says Jim Turner, CEO. For more information on the Optibike Helia visit
