Las Vegas, NV – This week at Interbike in Las Vegas, companies are introducing their new models of full size and folding electric bicycles for 2017. Folding electric bikes are supposed to be easy to carry and fold. Not so with most of the folding electric bikes on the market today. Weighing over 45lbs and folding in the middle, once these bikes are folded they are difficult to pick up much less carry.  

This is why electric scooters have become so popular with commuters looking for a first-mile, last-mile solution. Electric scooters are compact and some are light-weight, but the ride quality and stability suffers due to the small wheels.

The new 2017 VeloMini Plus offers the best of both worlds for commuters, RV, boat and private plane owners.

Weighing under 26lbs, and folding to only 34 inches long, (the same weight and length of some lighter weight electric scooters) the VeloMini Plus is the perfect solution for people looking for compact, light, and comfortable personal transportation.

The VeloMini Plus offers throttle as well as three levels of pedal assist. With speeds up to 14mph and range up to 18 miles, the VeloMini Plus will get you there comfortably and without breaking a sweat. And unlike scooters, the VeloMini is as easy to learn as well, riding a bike. And if the battery runs out you can still pedal with little effort.

The VeloMini Plus can be folded in under 20 seconds. When folded, you can easily pick it up to carry, or place it in its folding case to carry on mass transit without being turned away if the bicycle car is full.

Combine the VeloMini Plus with the new T-1 luggage/bike trailer and you have the world’s most convenient cargo bike. The T-1 converts in seconds from a bike trailer to luggage with wheels. Like the VeloMini Plus, the T-1 bike trailer comes with a carrying case to protect it in transit.

VeloMini Plus Subcompact Electric Folding Bicycle: $1295 with case, lights, and rack.

T-1 Luggage/bike trailer: $395 with case, bike connector, and flag.
