Optibike, the world’s leading manufacturer of high-end electric bicycles, announced today they are in production with the first electric bicycle designed for police and EMS first responders. The news comes just in time for the Police Security Expo at the Atlantic City Convention Center next week. “The Optibike ePatroller incorporates all of the latest electric bicycle technology and is easily the best-performing electric bike available for Police and EMS.” said Steve Munyon, Director of Channel Sales for Optibike. He also added “We are now able to reach speeds of 38 miles per hour with the ePatroller, so Police and EMS first responders can arrive on scene quickly, as well as stay in pursuits through areas not easily accessible using other vehicles.”
Alan Levine with Hybrid Pedals in Falls Church, VA, who specializes in electric bikes for police and military applications said, “In my opinion the Optibike ePatroller will make the Harley guys feel slow and bulky as the center of gravity is that of a Porsche Boxster. The speed and range is just astonishing and the ride smooth as silk. It is by far the best-conceived and built electric bike ever. I have almost every electric bike there is and this one puts them all to shame.”
Founded in 2005 and as seen on ESPN, The Today Show, Forbes, Business Week, USA Today, The New York Times & CNN: Optibike manufactures, assembles and conducts research to develop the next generation of electric bicycles in Boulder, Colorado USA.
