CLEARWATER, FL, January 25, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Electric Vehicle Mall (https://www.electricvehiclemall.com/fb48-warrior.html) is participating in the hot new Fat Tire electric bike trend that is taking cycling to new heights. A subdivision of mountain bikes, these fat tire e-bikes, called Fat e-Bikes, are breaking the mold permitting enthusiasts to ride any time of year. The fat tires, almost 4 inches wide, provide a stable platform to travel over a variety of surfaces including snow, sand, mud, and rough terrain.
According to The NPD Group, Inc. in an October 3, 2017 report, "There is also growing popularity of electric bicycles sporting fat tires (Fat e-bikes). Less than $500,000 in sales two years ago, Fat tire bikes now exceed $2.5 million in sales."
Once a novelty, Fat e-Bikes and riding them in snow is becoming the norm. From the northwest to the northeast, ski resorts and Alpine recreation areas are embracing the Fat Bikes and Fat e-Bikes opening their snowmobile trails for these cyclists. As the climate changes, average winters are becoming warmer and wetter. That spells trouble for skiers and snowboarders as well as the communities that depend on these snow sports. But bikes with fat tires hold promise for year-round recreation and an economic boom.
"Our customers are very interested in Fat e-Bikes and particularly like the Velec FB48 Warrior (https://www.electricvehiclemall.com/fb48-warrior.html) which also folds making it easy to take anywhere requiring less space than a standard bike frame," says Rod Jenkins, Owner of Electric Vehicle Mall. "They are a great ride over our sand and rough nature trails here in Florida, and many of our customers also travel to winter sports destinations where they ride their bikes as well. Sales of e-bikes outside of Florida and warmer climates used to flat-line in the winter, they are now spiking as cyclists can ride the flat tire e-bikes year-round on many surfaces."
