At Ahooga, we believe that electric bikes can play a role of accelerator in cities transformation. However, we have that consciousness that Li-Ion batteries are still a pollutant, and that the heavier a bicycle, the greater the dependence on the electric assistance. That’s why we design hyperlight bikes. With our unique hybrid concept, riding a Ahooga remains pleasant even when the electric support is off. In fact, you can even choose to mainly bypass the assistance,and only use it to punctually eliminate a hill or a headwind. In other words, you are not a slave to this assistance and have the choice to use the energy –the battery’s and yours – more smartly. We believe this is an even more sustainable approach as you’ll significantly increase your autonomy range and, as a result, your battery lifetime.
We are proud to claim we do not buy frames off the shelve, put a sticker on ‘em and call ‘em a Belgian product. We actually design our own frames, we weld them in Eastern Europe out of aluminum we buy in Belgium. 30% to 100% of assembly is made in Belgium.
