13:43 Vehicle Launches! - Ride1Up just released the Rift all-terrain fat-tire ebike. Offering up to 60 miles of range, a 348-pound weight capacity, and passenger capabilities, the Rift brings the best of both worlds in terms of off-road and cargo abilities. Check out the full review on Ride Review. - Taiwan-based company OKGO recently revealed a “smart” ebike that’s built to live up to its name. Housed by a carbon fiber frame, the bike offers fingerprint-scanning capabilities, voice command, and a radar module that alerts riders of rear-approaching vehicles. - Neighborhood electric vehicle maker WAEV added a solar panel accessory for their GEM models that can reportedly extend the range of the vehicles up to 12 miles. - Garmin has also developed a vehicle-detection system designed specifically for ebikes, which is powered entirely by the bike’s battery. Retailing for $299, the device attaches directly to your seat post and delivers audible alerts to your smartphone. - Historic British bike maker Raleigh has released a compact electric cargo bike called Modum that can cover 100 miles of range with a Bosch motor and 500W battery. The bikes main selling point is its handlebars that twist 180 degrees, making it easier to store flat in a hallway or narrow spaces.
