The electric bike industry has seen a surge in sales and patronage in the last 10 years. Many believe that this is because technology is already catching up with time, and there are those who believe that a fast-paced world requires fast-paced solutions like electric bikes.  

Realizing this, e-bike manufacturers like Progear Bikes in Australia devoted their time and effort to providing the general public with the best value and kinds of electric bikes and electric trikes. They are also committed to making such electric rides accessible to everyone, thus assuring that their products are high-quality, but affordable.

Who is Progear?

Hailing from the land down under, Progear Bikes has been providing Australians with high quality and affordable e-bikes for almost 20 years now. Their main goal is to ensure that every one, regardless of their riding ability or fitness level, gets to enjoy the thrill and excitement pedaling can give.

With their customers’ best interests in mind, Progear produces e-bikes and e-trikes that are functional, economical, and suitable for everyone. They also take pride in their NDIS-approved electric tricycles that have, over the years, helped the elderly and those who are differently-abled.

Why Should You Buy a Progear Electric Bike?

As we have mentioned earlier in this article, Progear is dedicated to providing top-of-the-line electric bikes and trikes that are still within your budget. Not all e-bike brands share the same idea, as some offer only products that are on the more expensive side of the spectrum.

However, Progear Bikes offers a wide variety of e-bikes that could be enjoyed by people of all ages, shapes, and sizes. Their collection ranges from classic electric city bikes, to electric mountain bikes that are perfect for riding off-road.

Here’s a little peek at the kinds of electric bikes you can purchase from Progear!

Electric City Bikes - in a busy city like Melbourne, where Progear Bikes’ design house is located, people are well aware of the different transport alternatives that are available to them. This is why Progear made sure that they house electric city designed for the urban setting. The sleek and classic designs of their electric commuter bikes can easily glide through busy streets, while staying safe and stylish!

Electric Mountain Bikes – Australians enjoy the great outdoors. Activities such as mountain biking are popular choices that made e-bike brands step up their game. Progear is one of those brands, and have come up with some of the best valued electric mountain bikes in the market.  They offer electric fat bikes and trail e-mtb that are perfect not just for recreational use, but for every-day use as well!

Electric Hybrid Bikes – E-hybrids are not much different from electric city bikes. These road bikes are furnished with narrower tyres and saddles, less suspension, and are usually more lightweight. Progear offers a collection of hybrid bikes that will suit anyone’s preference.

Electric Folding Bikes – being firm believers of convenience and functionality, Progear also made sure that they produce portable foldable e-bikes.
