24-year-old founders of Lectric eBikes see 90% increase in sales amid COVID-19
Lectric eBikes exploded onto the electric bike scene in May 2019 when 24-year-old co-founders and lifelong friends Levi Conlow and Robby Deziel recognized a market gap for high-quality e-bikes at an affordable price. Barely a year later, the Lectric XP bike has over 10,000 purchases and earned Electric Bike Review’s Top Choice Award for Best Folding Electric Fat Tire Bike of 2020. The company is expected to hit $12 million in sales by its first anniversary on May 30, 2020.
A study from Deloitte predicted that between 2020 and 2023, there will be 130 million electric bikes sold around the world. With concerns about public transportation becoming a hotspot for contracting coronavirus and changes in how the public gets around, Lectric eBikes has seen a 90% increase in sales since the week of March 15.
“Our customers have been saying that e-bikes are a great option for the new coronavirus-era way of living,” says Conlow. “The dramatic increase in sales shows that nationally, people are looking to shift how they get around. It’s also a fantastic option for those looking to socially isolate while getting fresh air outside.”
Lectric eBikes’ Lectic XP bike includes unbeatable product highlights, such as folding to less than half its size, arriving fully assembled, reaching up to 28MPH, all-terrain fat tires, 25- to 50-mile range and LCD computer display, all at just $899.
“In addition to comfort and convenience, we want to offer our customers a product that doesn’t forgo quality at an industry shattering price and without hidden fees,” says Deziel. “Now more than ever, we feel that getting an electric bike should be attainable for everyone.”
To give back to the community during these unprecedented times, Lectric eBikes will be donating 8,000 KN95 masks to healthcare workers in Arizona, where the company’s founders live. Additionally, the team has partnered with the Homes on Wheels Alliance to sponsor two buildouts. Homes on Wheels Alliance is a 501©3 nonprofit organization that strives to help build safe and secure homes on wheels for those who are facing financial difficulties.
