Hall 12 is once again home to the Cycle Show’s e-bike village next week, with a number of exhibitors showing e-bikes on stands and in the demo ‘pit’ area, including Wisper, Shimano Steps, Juicy, Batribike, Wattitud, Momentum Electric and Panda eBikes to name just a few.
Wisper will be launching their new e-MTBs on stand J131.
Powered by the Shimano Steps E8000 mountain bike drive system, the hard tail Wisper Wolf and full-suspension Wisper Wildcat will be available in alloy and carbon from early 2018.
Juicy Bike will also be showcasing their electric bikes in Hall 12: “Juicy would love you to join us at stand K152 for a chat, or on the test track, where you can fully experience Juicy joy and can find out for yourself why we keep getting such great reviews.
“We’ve got a show offer to make it even more tempting, so come and see us to find out more.”
Conversion kit specialists, Panda eBikes, can be found on stand J139: “We’re showing a really exciting e-bike conversion kit that works with any bike, has a range of 25 miles and is available for just £225, so now anyone can own an e-bike without spending a fortune.”
“The range can be upgraded to 50 miles. SWYTCH is a new, state of the art, but affordable e-bike system that can convert any bike into an e-bike, and we mean any bike.”
Meanwhile Batribike are launching two new ‘anniversary’ bikes at the show to celebrate 10 years in the UK electric bike industry. Sue Coulson of Batribike explained: “The Batribike TEN is available in crossbar and step-through versions, they have a ProMovec centre motor and a concealed battery in the frame like the Batribike Delta. The prototype will be in the test ride area for those that want to try it out.”
Hall 9 also features the Bosch sponsored e-MTB demo track introduced last year, with KTM and Cube models to try out.
KTM’s UK distributor, Fli, told Pedelecs: “Our stand at the NEC will be on H121 and G123. We will have e-bikes available on both test tracks for the visitors to try. We will also be showing the new 2018 Bosch powered e-bikes with powertube frames and the new Macina Flight, which features drop handlebars.”
Last year’s Cycle Show saw almost 30,000 visitors to the NEC. Now in its 16th year, the event has over 300 exhibitors: “The Cycle Show showcases the latest bikes and accessories from the leading bike brands, along with a dedicated area for cycling holidays, a large retail village, plus a section of the show for women’s cycling. The show is aimed at anyone who enjoys cycling and represents all genres from high-end Italian road bikes to the very latest in e-bike technology. There are two action arenas, over 4km of outdoor test tracks, dedicated children’s features and much more. ”
21st September is trade and press day only, with the show open to the general public from Friday 22nd through to Sunday 24th September. Ticket price information can be found here.
