MALIBU, Calif., May 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SONDORS Premium Electric Bikes has released the most anticipated electric bikes of 2017, the SONDORS Fold and Fold "X." Orders were opened to a VIP-only audience 48 hours before the official launch scheduled for later today, resulting in nearly $1M in sales thus far.
The SONDORS Fold is the latest game-changer in transportation. In two simple folds and less than ten seconds, SONDORS Fold is ready for effortless stowage in just about any space. Both models come with LCD display for five-speed electric pedal assist, all-terrain tires, SONDORS proprietary cylinder lithium-ion battery, SONDORS proprietary forged aluminum frame, and optional Shimano 7-speed gear cassette with grip shifter.
Built with both the city living and the off-road adventures in mind, SONDORS Fold and Fold "X" are a head-turning, fun, and convenient way for transportation in virtually any terrain.
"SONDORS Fold takes away the excuses anyone might have had not to drink SONDORS electric kool-aid," said Storm Sondors, Founder and CEO of SONDORS. "There's no more 'it's too big' or 'it's too heavy'. This is the SONDORS to bridge the gap to our goal of democratizing electric transportation."
SONDORS Fold comes with a 350W motor and 36V battery in either 8.8 or 14 Ah lithium-ion options and provides speeds up to 20 mph for a daily commute, a cruise along the beach, or a zip down a trail. With use of electric pedal assist, SONDORS Fold range can vary around 68 miles with the 17.5 Ah lithium-ion battery - contingent upon rider and towing weight, wind-speed, and terrain. Starting at $699 for a limited time, the anticipated retail price is between $999 - $1,285.
SONDORS Fold "X" proudly boasts power never before seen in a SONDORS with a 500W motor and 48V 17.5Ah lithium-ion battery. It offers extreme hill-climbing, acceleration, towing capacity and greater range, with up to 85 miles using electric pedal assist - contingent upon rider and towing weight, wind-speed, and terrain. Starting at $899 for a limited time, the anticipated retail price is $1,285 - $1,428.
Both SONDORS Fold and SONDORS Fold "X" are available for pre-sale only in the U.S. and Canada on the company's website here. SONDORS will be launching four new models before the end of the month, including models designed specifically for the European and Australian market.
Since February 2015, SONDORS has been responsible for revolutionizing the way the world views affordable electric transportation for the masses. It all began with the launch of SONDORS Original Fat Tire, attracting worldwide attention through one of the most successful crowdfunding campaigns in history. To keep up with demand, SONDORS launched two additional multi-million dollar campaigns all within the same year. Today, SONDORS contributes its continued success to the support and backing of more than 20,000 loyal SONDORS owners worldwide. To learn more, visit https://sondors.com/
