Roo EL

Price: £1,399.00  



The Roo EL is the world's lightest, most portable, and functional electric bike. It rides like a full size bike, has a powerful electric motor, and folds in 15 seconds. Because it only weighs 17 kilos (37.4 lbs.), it can be taken anywhere. Ride it to work and if it's raining, throw it in the back of a friend's car and catch a ride home. The Roo EL features a Dahon Special Edition drive system from SRAM, which has a range of 50 km, and is 20% more powerful and 70% quieter than its predecessor. Ideal customers: commuters who don't want to arrive at work bathed in sweat, older Baby Boomers, the physically disabled, grandparents who want to ride with their grand kids - anyone who wants to cycle but needs a bit of an "assist".

Dahon Special Edition SRAM electric motor

Long-lasting NiMh battery with 50 km range

Intuitive motion controlled system only adds power when you pedal

Integrated SRAM 5 speed hub gear for efficient pedaling in any terrain

With the electric assist turned off and the battery removed, the Roo EL rides just like a standard Dahon bike.
