A super light, powerful, folding, long range eBike
Gocycle was founded by Richard Thorpe a former McLaren F1 designer who used his experience and knowledge of F1 technology and applied it to creating an industry leading electric bike. The Gocycle G3 is the third edition of the Gocycle and marks a new standard for foldable electric bike design. Weighing only 16.3kg but having a range of up to 50 miles, the Gocycle can go further than some much bigger electric bikes but is still easy to fold and store in a cupboard or under your desk at work.
What’s more it’s brilliant fun to ride and zip about city streets on, turning your daily commute into a highlight of your day.
The Gocycle Proprietary Motor Gear drive and new Gocycle Connect App
The Gocycle G3 has two different power systems. It provides pedal assistance to the rider as they pedal, making it easier to zip about town without breaking a sweat, but also a throttle that can be toggled into action using the Gocycle Connect App. All of the settings of the Gocycle G3 can be controlled and modified using a new 4.0 version of the Gocycle Connect App that features an improved interface and more in depth journey information including the amount of petrol the rider has saved by cycling, their average speed and the calories they have burned. When you are riding the bike you can change the level of pedal assistance using the twist controls integrated into the new ergonomic grips.
A foldable design
The Gocycle G3 can also be easily folded up and stored compactly in it’s docking station. This additional extra has been redesigned specifically for the Gocycle G3.
A Daytime Running Light
The Gocycle G3 now includes a day time running light integrated into the the front of the handlebars. This innovation, now a mandatory requirement on all cars, allows the G3 to be far more visible to other road users and makes the bike look stunning at night. The Gocycle G3 is the first eBike to include this technology.
