GoCycle garnered major attention when they launched their one-of-a-kind e-bike design. For people who like leading-edge technology and are willing to pay for it, the GoCycle has immediate appeal.
GoCycle is the brainchild of a former automotive engineer who wanted a light and compact folding e-bike that took advantage of available technology. The company produces the GoCycle at two different price points—$3499 and $5499—depending on just how much cutting-edge tech the buyer wants.
The GoCycle’s most distinctive technological feature is its front hub motor, the proprietary G4 drive, which produces 500W (250W in the EU). It is visually striking thanks to its frame design, which features two hydroformed aluminum frame parts joined by a carbon fiber mid-frame. A locking latch can be released to fold the GoCycle into a tiny package, in part thanks to 20-in. wheels.
Another appeal for the GoCycle G4 is how the entire drivetrain is hidden inside GoCycle’s patented CleanDrive system. Riders won’t ever have to worry about how to get a black stain out of a pant leg. Considering how many proprietary parts the GoCycle employs, riders can be reassured that service will be easy by the presence of replacements that can be ordered from their web site.
Anyone looking for an e-bike that’s the result of true outside-the-box thinking will want to take a look at GoCycle.
