Come see what all the commotion is about!
Since 2009, Ken's has teamed up with Swann Electric Bicycles to offer a full range of electric-assisted or "e-bikes." Together they specialize in installing BionX conversion kits on regular bicycles. Conversion kits from BionX of Canada provide the smoothest, quietest, most reliable e-bike on the market and can be fitted to most new or existing bicycles. They can also be installed on recumbent bicycles, 3-wheelers, cargo bikes, mountain bikes and more. With three BionX-trained mechanics, no one in the area has more experience in preparing for the coming transportation revolution.
BionX e-bike technology works much like a hybrid car, except that you substitute your legs for the combustion engine. As the rider, you still pedal, but can choose to amplify your pedaling power by an extra 25 to 300%. The harder you push, the more the motor works with you. Utilizing the latest battery technology, every BionX system we sell gives a minimum of 20-mile range on the highest power setting. Using the electric power more conservatively can take you beyond 60 miles. The system charges fully in a few hours.
The BionX system is one of the few e-bike or e-bike conversion kits that allows you to regenerate power. Put it in a regenerative mode and recharge your battery as you coast downhill. Your speed is reduced on the descent, so you don’t have to keep your hands constantly on the brakes. The ability to regenerate power extends your range in hilly terrain.
What about exercise?
With four levels of assist you’ll get all the exercise you want. Because e-bikes are a simple, clean way to get ourselves and our gear where we’re going, you will likely substitute your car trip for an e-bike trip. Hook a trailer up to your e-bike, and suddenly you’ve got a fun, non-polluting way to carry kids to school, get groceries, and commute to work. And you’ll feel great leaving the car behind.
“Options, you say?”
Yes, we can install a variety of options, such as a controller display, lights, and a bluetooth module for use with a Smartphone App. Options offer you the ability to see your battery level, speed, distance, time, heart rate, map, and more.
Try one today!
Of course the practical and environmental benefits of an e-bike are substantial, but the best part of owning one is how fun they are to ride! You can stop by Ken's any time (Mon-Sat 9am-7pm, Sun 12n-6p) to try one out today!
