E-Bikes and Cascade
Cascade's vision is Bicycling for All, and we believe that innovative technology can help more people discover the joys of bicycling.
People who wouldn’t have considered riding a traditional bike are becoming electric bike (e-bike) riders. The electric pedal assist boost gives people the ability to flatten hills, travel longer distances or bike while carrying groceries or a child.
E-bikes provide people new opportunities to enjoy the benefits of riding a bicycle. The growing availability and improved technology of electric-assist bicycles is reflected in the demand as e-bike sales are up more than 450% since 2013.
