SWAGTRON Adds Gears, Bigger Battery to Popular EB7 Folding Electric Bike

EB7 Plus Gets Gears, Larger Battery, Improved Range and Limited Edition Orange Color

DENVER, Oct. 24, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- SWAGTRON™, maker of some of the most affordable electric bikes for sale, today announces an upgraded version of its popular EB7 folding e-bike. Compared to the existing EB7 Elite, the new EB7 Plus sees the addition of gears and a larger battery for improved range. Other changes include a longer seat post to better fit taller riders and initial availability in a limited edition orange colorway.

"The EB7 is one of our best-selling folding e-bikes," says Jason Wakefield, CMO. "But we knew it could be better. We listened to feedback from customers, and made small changes that will have a big impact on versatility and day-to-day performance."

The addition of a 7-speed Shimano SIS gear system makes the bike more versatile for pedaling, especially when conquering steeper hills without using the motor. The EB7 Plus also gets a larger 6.4Ah battery that bumps the range from 15 to 20 miles per charge. The battery remains removable for easy charging and the ability to swap for a freshly charged battery (sold separately) if need be.

The EB7 Plus also retains the smooth and powerful 350-watt motor, 18.6 mph top speed (throttle only), 16-inch wheels, LED headlight, bar-mounted display, rear suspension and general styling of its predecessor, most notably the sleek, angular lines of its hydroformed aluminum frame.

Dual disc brakes provide consistent stopping power in any weather. And the ability to quickly fold (approximately 10 seconds) to a compact 39.4 by 27.6 inches makes it the perfect cycling companion when space is at a premium for storage and transport.

Mostly known for its compact and folding electric bikes, SWAGTRON also recently released a series of full-size electric bikes, including city bikes and cruisers.

The EB7 Plus folding electric bike retails for $770 but is available for an introductory price of $699.99 at SWAGTRON.com, Amazon and other fine retailers.
