The UK’s longest running mobility show – The Mobility Roadshow in Peterborough – saw electric bike firm Powabyke pick up two awards.
At the show disability magazine Able tested Powabyke’s range in the Cyclefest bike testing area.
The XLS (step through) scored a five star product award – the highest possible – from the mag, while the Powatryke Cruiser was given a four star for its unique qualities as a pre-mobility vehicle, designed for those with limited use of their legs.
“We are very proud to receive these two product awards from Able magazine,” said Powabyke MD Nick Child. “We think the Powatryke Cruiser is a unique vehicle and deserves the recognition and for the XLS to receive the five star award shows just why this is our most popular product and has shown exceptional demand this year in terms of orders.”
The XLS is Powabyke’s best seller – a sleek silver alloy bike with a low step through frame for easy access, six speed Shimano gears and a range of ten to 20 miles on battery power, depending on usage.
The six speed Powatryke Crusier has a step through clearance of an ultra low six inches from the ground, so it doesn’t tax the legs of those with limited mobility. The bike has a shopping basket, is throttle controlled and comes with a choice of Lead Acid or Lithium In battery. It has a range of up to 30 miles on battery power.
