FREMONT, Calif. -- Silicon Valley-based GenZe has a new solution for people in crowded, gridlocked cities who want the freedom of efficient personal transportation, without the hassle, costs or environmental impact of driving a car.

The company is introducing the 200-Series e-Bike as the latest development in GenZe’s commitment to revolutionizing personal transportation. The new lightweight models with integrated battery and LCD display boast a range of innovative tech features not typically found on any two-wheel vehicle, especially a bicycle. These electric bikes aim to offer a viable alternative to cars in densely-populated areas, delivering the performance, comfort and interactive benefits that consumers demand in a commuting vehicle.

Uniquely, the 200-series models feature the ability to connect wirelessly via Bluetooth to a GenZe companion smartphone app. This allows riders to measure their physical effort level while pedaling, map distances covered, plan riding routes, and even connect with other users to track and gamify performance.

"Living with daily gridlock has unfortunately become the norm for many people," said Tom Valasek, chief marketing officer for GenZe. "e-Bikes are the perfect solution to easily get around town, and they can even be your main vehicle, but you shouldn’t have to compromise technology, convenience and other benefits in your daily commute. To prove this, we developed these e-Bikes with innovative features, and intentionally made this technology affordable to encourage e-Bikes as a daily transportation option."

According to Valasek, the GenZe app receives real-time data from a system of vehicle sensors throughout the e-Bikes, enabling the connected functions. An integrated LCD display in the bike’s frame shows trip data, riding mode and other info, while a built-in phone mount and USB charger are provided for added convenience. Much of the 200-Series’ connected technology was first pioneered by GenZe with the brand’s innovative 2.0S Electric Scooter, which debuted in 2015 as one of the world’s first smartphone-paired electric two-wheel vehicles.

"Our goal with these e-Bikes is providing a practical solution to traffic that is effective and fun," said Valasek. "Since an e-Bike allows you to control your physical input better than a conventional bike, you can comfortably ride long distances and compete with friends via our smartphone app, even while commuting to work or running errands."

In most U.S. cities, e-Bikes can go anywhere a conventional bicycle can go, including shared lanes, cycling paths and other dedicated bikeways. Since GenZe e-Bikes are also designed to be taken on public transportation, they also offer a convenient long-distance solution for commuters who need to cover the "first mile/last mile" of their trip.

According to Valasek, the GenZe 200-series e-Bikes uniquely offer three riding modes: Throttle; Pedal Assist; and Pedal. The new models feature an easily-removable battery that can be plugged into any standard outlet for a quick recharge in 3.5 hours. A 350 W motor provides 30-50 assisted miles at up to 20 mph on a single charge. The GenZe 201 has a high-bar sport design while the GenZe 202 has a step-through frame. Both models are available in two lightweight aluminum frame sizes that are fully adjustable to suit a multitude of riders and rider preferences.
