While most bikes require manual labor, Sanyo’s new Eneloop bikes, a carbon fiber model and a foldable bicycle, saves you that exertion. Taking advantage of downward deceleration, the regenerative braking system gathers sufficient charge to assist you in biking uphill. Available in two models, dubbed the CY-SPK227 and CY-SPJ220, the bikes are for the green-minded affluent with a spending proclivity. Quite pricey, mind you!
Hailed as the world’s first electric bike with a carbon frame, the CY-SPK227 ably carries you through 100 km for a 3.5-hour charge. Moreover, it operates on a Power Reserve Mode, has a Central Controller with back light LCD, vibration-reduction body design, and a 5.7 Ah lithium-ion battery. It is priced at $6,700.
The second one, the CY-SPJ220, is a foldable bike, and it weighs 18.5 kg. The foldable version is available in black, red or white. It does 46 km for a 2.25-hour charge. It’s cheaper than the other one; priced at just $1,100.
Zero emissions, safe biking and nominal effort; Sanyo’s bikes offer triple benefits.
