Portability – One of the vital first questions we are asked when riding around town is “What happens while you run out of power?” The answer is simple: “You’ll be able to fold the YikeBike up and catch a taxi or public transport and continue on”. Easy. You’ll be able to take it all over the place you wish to have to go, never have to worry about leaving it out of your sight, and not more bike locks!
Visibility – The YikeBike lights are on always when riding around town and are visible from hundred of meters away, making others more acutely aware of your presence, speed and direction when riding. Turning signals, rear lights and hazard light functions are included.
Usability – Ever have to pick out up your car across town and you’re running late? Want to get to a meeting where there’s a lack of parking? Ever found yourself needing to get to that train or boat and needing to depend on that bus that gets stuck in rush hour traffic? Having a YikeBike makes getting to all meetings and public transport something you’re going to never have to worry about.
Easy – The YikeBike is different and the perception of a few when they first see it can be that it looks hard to ride. Even as it’s true that it’s different and it’s design is unique it’s remarkably easy to discover ways to ride it. A couple of minutes in an open space will see you riding it with confidence, and loving the thrill of zooming along like you are floating on air.
Presence – There is not any hiding it! The YikeBike sound is unique! And we like it. Have you ever ridden your bicycle around town and passed a parked car and encountered an inconsiderate driver who opens their door on you? Driving around on a YikeBike you steadily notice that people hear you coming before they see you, inherently increasing your road presence.
