CHATSWORTH, CA (BRAIN) — Electric bike maker Currie Technologies is working with folding bike maker Dahon to introduce, you guessed it, an electric folding bike.
The IZIP E3 Compact will debut at Interbike later this month. The $1,900 retail bike has a Dahon aluminum folding frameset, a 36-volt Currie Electro-Drive system with high-capacity Samsung lithium-ion battery pack and Currie’s PAS/TAG System that allows the rider to choose pedal assist or power on demand modes.
The removable battery pack is integrated into the rear carrier, making it easy to remove and charge the battery away from the bike.
"The IZIP E3 Compact has everything you could ask for when it comes to personal mobility; we’ve combined strength, power, and lightweight convenience all into one bike,” said Larry Pizzi, president of Currie Technologies, which is owned by Accell Group.
The Compact will begin shipping to dealers early next year, Pizzi said.
