Gogoro introduced Eeyo 1, an ultralight ebike for city riders designed with an open frame that eliminates the seat tube and uses Kevlar® reinforced carbon fiber to increase strength and save weight.
Gogoro Eeyo is a new electric hybrid brand innovating in lightweight electric-assisted transportation. The first Gogoro Eeyo project is the Eeyo 1 and the Eeyo Smartwheel. The Eeyo 1 ebike weighs only 26 lbs., half the weight of a standard ebike, and is designed to be nimble and quick, meeting the needs of a city rider.
Horace Luke, founder and CEO of Gogoro Inc., explained, “Ebikes don’t all need to be heavy cargo haulers or feel like you’re riding a battery, so we created the Eeyo 1 to be ultralight, quick, responsive, and fun.”
The Eeyo 1’s open-frame design eliminates the seat tube and uses Kevlar® reinforced carbon fiber to increase strength and eliminate weight, allowing riders to move quickly and nimbly through city streets and bike lanes. The unique lightweight design also allows riders to easily carry the bike when it cannot be ridden — into a subway station, onto a bus, or into the rider’s garage or home.
