Why Should You Buy an e-Bike?
Given the current situation of the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the rising fuel cost, the Skellig Pro offers ease of personal mobility at nearly zero costs in fuel. In addition to this, riding an e-bike also helps the environment as the bicycle does not emit any tailpipe emissions. The e-bike offers the ease of use of a battery-powered scooter and the pedals with gears to eliminate the range anxiety completely. The Skellig Pro e-bike also comes with a removable and portable lightweight battery that can be charged at home or office. Furthermore, the users of the e-bike are also safe from the coronavirus as riding a bike to work leads to automatic social distancing.
