Ann Arbor, MI - On May 12th, 2013 Mechanical Engineer Jason Habeger launched a Kickstarter campaign to redefine the electric bicycle with his latest invention, ‘Ride Scoozy.’
“Ride Scoozy is a newly founded electric bicycle company whose mission is to provide affordable, reliable, and fun electric bicycles. While sticker shock keeps many from purchasing an electric bicycle, our electric bicycles provide the same performance capabilities as others at a significantly reduced price.” – Jason Habeger (Founder)
This new invention challenges existing electric bicycle products by offering longer battery life, a more robust motor that is capable of speeds of up to 18 mph, ergonomic grips, e-bike specific saddles, and comes in at a reasonable early-adopter price.
Having already raised $2,498 in the first three days, ‘Ride Scoozy’ is a testament to the growing eco-friendly commuter community that is seeking viable alternatives to current environmentally harmful modes of transport. The campaign has managed to raise this amount from its “perks” or “rewards” that early supporters receive in exchange for pledging funds. Some of these include the ability to own both the original ‘Ride Scoozy’ and an updated version with enhanced power output, a higher tip speed, and a specially designed saddle.
“Electric bicycles are taking over the country. They are a great alternative to driving or public transportation allowing you to save time, money, and have fun during the process!“ – Jason Habeger (Founder)
Whether it’s commuting to work, going to school, or exploring the outdoors, electric bicycles are growing in popularity due to their per-mile cost savings and environmental benefits. Up until now, electric bicycles have been held back due to a high cost of ownership, but more and more, the cost of this new mode of transport is decreasing, of which the ‘Ride Scoozy’ is a great example.
The company will be accepting pre-orders and pledges via their Kickstarter campaign up until June 12th. For more information, please visit this link or contact the company below.
