Want the convenience of an electric bike without all the unwieldy super-sized tech? Then look no further than SitGo. The shape-shifting e-bike that folds up in seconds.
At a glance, it’s clear SitGo isn’t your average electric bike. It only looks like half a bike, for a start, with a significantly larger front wheel that gives the impression it’s some sort of newfangled penny farthing.
But that’s all part of the magic. With just three quick and simple steps, SitGo can fold up to a compact size so you can easily slip under your desk, in the car boot, or even into a suitcase.
It’s equipped with a few mod cons for a safer and more enjoyable ride too. There’s a rear lamp and two far-reaching front lamps for night-time traveling, a USB charging port to juice up your phone or MP3 player, and a handy rotating smartphone mount so you can fire up the sat nav while you cycle.
Made from strong steel with a durable rubber cover, Skylock uses 256-bit elliptic curve cryptology to keep your bike safe…
SitGo will carry you around 22 miles before its battery needs a boost, which is easily done with its home charging cable, or in a novel twist, through a car cigarette charging port. Charging takes four to five hours.
Its top speed is 15mph, which is the legal limit for e-bikes. Don’t be put off by that. While you won’t be burning rubber at the velodrome, 15mph is faster than it sounds. Especially if you’re a car driver. It’s strong enough to climb inclines under 15 degrees too, which is no mean feat for an e-bike.
You can get in line for a SitGo over at its Indiegogo page. It’s currently going for $469 (around £310).
