Simply put, if Steve McQueen were alive today he would be escaping on one of these!
At the end of 2020, just 4 months after starting in the UK, Knaap Bikes scooped the Innovation from a Newcomer of the Year and Innovation Award with our stunning 2 seater, 140km range, 180kg (28st) capacity eBike. The Editor of Cycling Industry News even been called it “The Most Instagramabble Bike Ever!”
One of my primary markets for the Knaap Bike is the Leisure market and specifically Motorhomes, Caravans and Leisure parks. The latter because one of the bikes can be fitted with a front or rear rack and a pizza style carry box and used on sites for delivering hot or cold food, supplies or taking new arrivals to their pitches….and it can be ridden by anyone over the age of 14 as it is a road legal, pedal assisted eBike limited to 25kmh.
For the core motorhomer or caravanner of any age the Knaap Bike provides some really amazing benefits, not only can you have 2 riders on board as it has been build and designed for the purposes of two riders (Highway Code section 68) bout it has 80Nm of force, meaning that it has more than enough power to carry upto 28 stone in 2 riders. Additionally for anyone with weight, fitness or mobility issues all you are required to do to keep the motor engaged is gently rotate your legs and the power is maintained.
The Knaap Bike also has one of the largest batteries in the eBike industry with a staggering 756Wh from a Samsung A Class battery which recharges from zero to full in less than 6 hours. With a range of 140km/86 miles on its economy setting and over 30 with two riders the Knaap Bike gives you everything you should need both on site and when you head out and about in your local area.
One of the other amazing benefits of this modern, supercool retro looking bike is that it has supersede 4 inch tyres meaning that as soon as you have taken your first pedal stroke you have no wobble and weave that guy normally associate with traditional bikes meaning that people that have found it hard to balance suddenly get their Ewings!
The bike has 5 different levels of pedal assist that enable you to adjust the assistance to find your most comfortable ride effort so at level 5 someone with limited walking capability could still ride the bike as all they have to do is gentle turn their legs with absolute minimum effort as this keep the cadence engaging the Knaap Bike engiine.
It would be great explore with you how we could reach the Motorhome and Caravanning market this year as the biggest number of people will be staying in the UK and no doubt looking for ways to enjoy the countryside and their local area.
