Putting the BESV PS-1 to the test

Putting a Tern Vizy rear light and Xeccon 300 Lumens Link front light. I went exploring and ended up meeting some friends at Seletar. Man, if you think owning a legal, LTA approved PAB (Pedal Assisted Bicycle)suggests that you do not get an exercise? Think again!. The PS-1, 7 speed was designed for city cycling and for most – once you hit 30-31km/h after the mandated 25km/h assistance cutoff, you will run out of gears. I could get about 42k/h down slope but on straights 30km/h was as best as I could and spun like a lab mice. Uphills the PS-1 performed beautifully. Assistance just enough to keep you going. Am going back to the authorised dealer to see if we can change the cassette from 7 speeds to 9 speeds. Overall great design and great PAB( Pedal Assisted Bike) that can carry loads of payload (25kg). Again, no throttle and cutoff at 25km/h. This bike will put you through your paces

The Xbat series of lights features different models for different bicycles. In all cases, all Xbat lights automatically turn on when a bicycle is ridden, without any batteries or direct contact to the rim of a bike’s tire.

This means cyclists no longer have to worry about changing batteries; the magnetic induction employed by Xbat lights uses only a small portion of the bike’s momentum to generate a clear, bright light whenever a cyclist starts to peddle; Xbat lights are completely silent, unlike traditional dynamos and, best of all, Xbat lights not only look fashionable but also are very easy to mount on a bike. Available at My Bike Shop and BRU stores.

Swifty Scooters – putting it all together

SwiftyONEs with all the enhancements is FINALLY here. Not only have new stocks reached our shores, we are getting the privilege  to meet the man behind Swifty Scooters – Jason Iftakhar

So what have we got in store for Singapore?

2016 SwiftyOne Preorders

3 beautiful colours and 1 special edition to choose from. A larger air filled tire gives the SwiftyOne unparalleled ride and comfort.

We have witnessed the growth of the kick scooter as an increasingly popular and fun form of transport for adults, whether it be commuting or urban leisure.  There are plenty of scooters out there to choose from, some which look like kids toys, some larger scooters with hard wheels, and some which fold or dismantle – and then there is  SwiftyONE!

Lets have a look at SwiftyONE’s key features.

Large 16 inch pneumatic wheels

Swifty’s scooters all have 16 inch pneumatic wheels, we believe that this is the secret to an enjoyable and adventurous journey, unhindered by terrain. Anything from a twig to a uneven flagstone could cause an accident or simply slow you down, but not with the SwiftyONE – you just keep on rolling. Also the smaller the wheels, the more rolling resistance, with 16” pneumatic wheels you can cruise, coast and freewheel – also larger wheels mean that kick for kick you will get more propulsion.

SwiftyONE folding mechanism

A folding scooter is an advantage if you use public transport as part of your journey, or have limited storage space. We believe that the unique folding mechanism of SwiftyONE is unrivalled. There are similar sized adult scooters with larger wheels, (like the Mibo, Yedoo & Kickbike), but nothing that folds like SwiftyONE.

Often the folding mechanism becomes a weak-point in the strength of a scooters frame, rattling as you scoot along, but this is not the case with SwiftyONE. The quality and craftsmanship of the mechanism on our scooter means that the frame remains strong, it’s a feature SwiftyONE owners love.

Quality design and engineering

Have you heard the motto, buy cheap, buy twice? SwiftyONE is one of the more expensive scooters on the market, but with good reason. The build quality is excellent, nothing rattles or shakes. The folding features work perfectly and are built to last.

And a special visitor – Jason himself!

We get to hear from him, his story, his ups and downs and a design entrepreneur on the 5th May at one of our Dealer’s location.
