GinzVelo combines a love of innovation, healthy living, and appealing design in an effort to create a new method of transportation that will someday hopefully change how people travel in cities all across the world.
Peter Ginzburg, co-founder of GinzVelo, said that “GinzVelo is going to change how people travel in cities and suburbs”. Powered by a human and assisted with electricity, GinzVelo introduces the public to Human Electric Hybrids (HEH) and encourages a new form of travel. Although technically a very advanced bicycle, GinzVelo combines the speed of a car and look of a spaceship for a sleek alternative to travel by car in the growing age of public transport, carpools, and bike shares.
GinzVelo provides a safe, efficient, and healthy option to travel.
Safety – The tough, fiberglass and foam core composite body cocoons the rider in a safe, weather-resistant shell that offers protection from both elements and other vehicles. The unique shape and bright LED lights and turn signals ensure a strong road presence even in dim light.
Efficiency – Its size and function retains classification as a bicycle, making it legal to park on the sidewalk and squeeze into tight parking spots.
Powered by a 500 W hub motor and 20 Ah LiPo battery,GinzVelo achieves a range of 75 to 100 miles at up to 20 mph on a single charge without the use of pedal power. Using pedal power, the GinzVelo is so aerodynamic and efficient that an average person can power it past 30 Mph without any assistance while maintaining 20 Mph for miles on end. Pedaling with the use of electric assist allows GinzVelo to have nearly unlimited range. At 85 Lbs, GinzVelo is light enough to pedal for long periods of time.
Healthy – GinzVelo aims to support the “bike to work” and “healthy family” initiatives undertaken by both local and Federal governments, encouraging people to become more active and integrate exercise into their lifestyle.
Peter finishes saying that “GinzVelo combines a love of innovation, healthy living, and appealing design in an effort to create a new method of transportation that will someday hopefully change how people travel in cities all across the world.”
