Lithium Battery Improvements on the Horizon

Recent news from scientists in America reveals that in the future Lithium Batteries could have an even bigger range.

The breakthrough has come about with the development of a new type of polymer which is better than the current material and is relatively economical to manufacture.

The benefits to the electric bike market could be excellent. Higher energy storage values mean that greater distance per charge can be achieved, or batteries could be made smaller and lighter for the same distance.

The new material is still in the development stage at the moment but we can look forward to using this new technology in the future.

Islay's Cycling Coffee Stop!

Last week we were privileged enough to stop off for a coffee at Debbies famous coffee shop at Bruichladdich on the Scottish isle of Islay.

The coffee and cake was excellent and the cycling memorabilia worth a quick picture (or two).

Early Training!

A passion for bikes is something that starts from a young age, so I couldn't resist sharing this picture of our technical and social media departments in their formative years!

Here at Batribike we are still passionate about bicycles, especially those with electric motor assistance.

Batribike in Jet Set Lifestyle

It's only some of us that are jet setting and really it's not as glamorous as you'd think! Living out of a suitcase is only fun the first time. But the news for Batribike is quite exciting.
Steve had only just come back from visiting the factory in China, and then he was off again, this time to the Bike show in Milan.

Our Trike 20 is on display in Milan!

I too was out and about, (but not internationally), in Lincolnshire yesterday, braving the horrors of road closures that sent me scurrying down the back lanes to Tattershall. The Autumn leaves are still looking spectacular and the mild weather is keeping the winter chill away.
