‘Not-a-Wheelchair’ is fully electric and super quiet

The accessible bike can go 12mph

It has a range of 10-20 miles with one battery, and 25-35 miles with two batteries (depending on terrain, the weight of the rider, and weight of the cargo)

“Our whole goal is to provide something that is capable and affordable”
