For an Easy, Eco-Friendly Alternative
 
 

Maybe you've been looking for an easy and convenient way to get around that is fun and eco-friendly, or maybe you would love to be able to ride a regular bike but can't for health reasons. If so, a Reef Bike may be just the solution for you. The Reef Bike is an electric powered bike (e-bike) that is a great alternative to driving in the city, for navigating country roads just for fun, or even because you would love to ride a regular pedal bike but are not physically able to. A Reef e-bike comes in several styles, is near silent to operate, charges easily in a short amount of time and is easier on the environment than a car, motorcycle or a scooter. You can even buy one of Reef's handy bike conversion kits and turn any bicycle into an e-bike!

If you've never considered (or even heard of) an e-bike, you might be surprised at how fun and cost effective this alternative form of transportation is. Reef is an Australian company co-founded by George Kazacos and Jovan Vucetic, who both have experience in developing products and exploring renewable energy ideas. Bringing quality electric bicycles to the world is only one part of what the team at Reef Bikes does. In developing and promoting the e-bike as an alternative to driving, Reef Bikes are helping people get where they need to go with lower CO2 emissions, less time spent in traffic, and less reliance on public transportation. Another benefit of the e-bike technology is that people, who wouldn't otherwise view bicycle transportation as practical or feasible, begin to choose this healthy alternative over driving. According to the co-founders, "Reef Bikes has been a pioneer in developing new electric bicycle technology for many years, and designing their bikes to look great and perform at the highest level."

What can you expect when you buy a Reef Bike? First, you are able to choose from one of the many styles of electric bike, including mountain bike, off road, commuter, racing, ladies, and even a trike with a handy carry basket mounted on the back. Each Reef bike is made to the highest standards in both design and function, and the power is provided by the high quality lithium battery. Kazacos and Vucetic say, "The most crucial part of any electric bike is the battery. Reef Bikes only uses Panasonic Batteries, which are the most reliable, and will last for double the time of any other e-bike battery." The Reef bikes are constructed with the best suspension systems and sturdy frames, so you don't have to worry about using your bike frequently or about getting caught out in the elements. In fact, electric bikes from Reef are safe to use in all weather, with no possibility of damaging the electric parts or of receiving electric shocks. Reef even offers foldable bikes for people who have limited storage space for their e-bikes!

Another option Reef offers is the conversion kit, which contains everything you need to turn a bike you already own into an electric bike. Perhaps you have a particular bike you love, or you're simply a do-it-yourselfer who loves to get your hands dirty. The kit comes with the wheel and hub motor, headlight, lithium battery, throttle, power gauge, pedal assist sensor, and a plug in charger, plus there are resources available to help you successfully install the conversion kit to your bike. The kit has a one-year warranty on the battery, motor and electric parts, and the team at Reef is dedicated to providing help and assistance after the sale at their Reef Service Centers.

As it becomes more important to conserve fuel, protect the environment, and use more efficient modes of transportation, more people will consider alternative means of getting around like the electric bike. However, not all electric bikes are created equal, and it pays to invest your money in a quality product made from the best materials for strength, durability, and longer life. Reef Bikes are made using the latest electric bike technology, and they are designed to take you where you need to go in eco-friendly style.
