Electric Cycles: A new beginning for healthy & eco friendly india

Bicycles are amazing, eco-friendly means of transport for cities that help preserve the environment, reduce air pollution. Apart from all the environmental benefits, bicycle keeps you healthy and is very inexpensive as compared to other means of transport . Some people may think only traditional bicycles help in keeping you healthy but a recent research has shown that 80% of people who own an electric cycle, use it 4-5 times a day for local transport whereas only 40 % of people who own traditional cycles use their bicycles once or twice a day.

Few decades ago, bicycles were the most common means of transport in cities before the world went crazy over the fuel vehicles. However, the recent crisis and rise in price of oil has contributed to a slight increase in use of cheaper and eco friendly means of transportation such as electrical vehicles. Since, pedaling everyday is not so easy for everyone in India, we have designed a unisex and very comfortable electric cycle for you.

The OMO electric bike(E-bike) is similar to traditional cycle that is equipped with a motor in rear wheel which is powered by lithium ion battery. The battery can be recharged anytime with a charger provided with E-bike.

A lot of people prefer to do high intensity exercise and cycling everyday, but not everyone is able to do it. A regular body movement is required for people of every age to keep you healthy.

Cycle to Work. Be healthy & happy.

A cycling activity involves movement of following muscles.

Quadriceps muscles (front of thighs) , Hamstrings (rear of thigh) , Calf muscles ,Hip flexors ,Gluteus Maximus (butt), Plantarflexors of the foot, Dorsiflexors of the foot. Together all of these muscles contract in a sequence that creates the pedalling motion. Upper body muscles used while cycling are mainly for support and stabilisation, but this is still a great workout for Abdominal muscles (internal and external), Arm muscles ,Chest and shoulders, Muscles of the back.

How Electric cycle Helps in Improving health ?

Electric cycle helps you enjoy cycling exercise with less effort. OMO Electric cycle is provided with different modes such as low , medium and high for a healthy bicycle ride everyday. The maximum speed in low mode is 10 km/hr. So setting your controller to low mode and simultaneous peddling will assist you in pedal movement but still all your body parts are in proper cycling motion.

Since it is not possible for some people to pedal on fly over or steep roads, so people can change the mode to medium or high and with just accelerator(no pedal), you can easily climb the flyover as we have tested it on all major flyover in big cities like Delhi and Mumbai.
