8 Nov 2022

Peddle, a new e-bike firm set up by one of Britain’s leading technology distributers will launch with a range of four machines that are designed to be easy to use and come with a 'complete' set of accessories.

The new brand will launch with four pedal assist e-bikes: the Go commuter bike, Step and Ride city bikes and the Pro all-rounder. Priced from £1599 to £2599, Peddle also claims that each will come with more kit and extras than any other bike brand.

Peddle has been set up by Exertis, which you might not have heard of but is a big B2B technology distributers and specialist service provider. That company is, in turn, part of the FTSE-listed DCC, a sales, marketing and services group.

The new e-bike brand claims that it is unique by offering a ‘complete’ e-bike product that’s ready to ride straight from the box. Peddle claims each machine comes with more than £500 of features and up to £150 of accessories, which includes a Yale security lock, handlebar cover, mini pump, mountable cup holder, spare mains charger, multi-tool and a BikeRegister security tag. 

All the firm’s e-bikes also come with an LCD display with Bluetooth, so riders can share their data through a smartphone app.
