New, cutting edge product in the bicycle industry – the Ridekick power trailer

Fort Collins, Colorado – Ridekick International, a Colorado-based company, recently introduced a new product to the bicycle industry – the Ridekick power trailer.

The Ridekick power trailer is the first commercially available electric-powered bicycle trailer. It blends the design of an electric bicycle with a bike trailer, letting a bicyclist ride through town, over hills, and through head winds at speeds up to 19 miles per hour without pedaling. At an affordable price of $699, the Ridekick power trailer easily attaches to most bikes in minutes and can be unhitched in seconds for traditional riding.

Between the boost and the 42-liter lockable storage compartment, commuting and errand running by bike have become more practical. The 500-watt battery-driven motor boosts the biker for 12 to 15 miles on a single charge, allowing the rider to get around town for a few cents per battery charge.

Fifty percent of our trips by car are less than four miles from our home bases, and bicycling is the fun and healthy alternative to driving,” said Wanger.

The Ridekick power trailer is designed and manufactured in northern Colorado, and is sold through independent bicycle dealers throughout the United States. Online purchasing, through the company’s website ridekick.com, is also available to customers not served by independent dealers.
