Health benefits of riding an e-bike

When you hear that the health benefits of e-bikes are getting a lot of attention lately, we understand if you might respond by asking just what exactly the “e” in “e-bikes” adds that wasn’t already available. Bikes are bikes, right? What benefits does an e-bike provide that old-school bikes didn’t already give us? And shouldn’t e-bikes be a little less healthy because they’re easier to ride?

Well, it’s a little more complicated than that.

First Kickstarter Deliveries Made!

August is supposed to be about vacation time but for us it's delivery time. We made our first delivery to a Kickstarter backer at the beginning of the month and, honestly, it’s hard to say who was happier. What do you think?IMG_9957-1Presenting a shiny new JIVR to our very first Kickstarter backer from 2015 was a fantastic experience and we look forward more smiles and excited unboxings over the next month or so as we work our way down the list of others who have patiently waited their turn.

You can imagine how proud we are to see JIVR go from idea to plan to project to prototype to revolutionary electric bike, all with the generous help of our Kickstarter backers. It took a lot of work to get there but reaching a goal like this makes it all worthwhile. Thanks again to everyone who believed in us!

Want to see what making the first delivery was like? Watch the video of the first JIVR delivery for Kickstarter backers below.
