4,000 bikes to be shipped shortly

Powabyke links with US distributor Brandsco

Powabyke will ship 4,000 of its electric bikes to US distributor Brandsco, which now exclusively handles the brand across the Atlantic.

The move follows a number of European deals, vastly broadening the Brit brand’s reach. Nick Child, Powabyke MD said of the partnership: “I am obviously delighted to secure such a key territory for Powabyke. Last year we presented the new bikes at the Interbike International Bicycle Expo in Las Vegas and both the American public and trade loved our new X-bykes. We are confident The Brandsco PLC will achieve great success there.”

Powabyke has recently launched a new range inclusive of three Mk2 models in the X-range series. The new line are all furnished with 250 watt motors and sleek lightweight cylindrical electric batteries enabling them to travel self propelled, with the twist of a handlebar mounted throttle, between 10 and 20 miles on a single charge.

The firm tells BikeBiz that its UK network now extends to around 400 dealers, which to date have sold over 35,000 Powabykes.
