PRICE (Including shipping*)
We want to give you something newer, better, and more hi-tech than gears. So, we’ve replaced mechanical gears with Pedal Boost Sensors! The Pedal Boost feature on LightSpeed Electric Bicycles lets you decide how much effort you apply each time you pedal. You can keep switching between levels and work up your metabolism, or fix a level and cruise at an even speed. Pedal Boost pretty much lets you monitor exactly how much effort you physically put into each ride.
