HumanForest has announced that it has integrated a new style of e-bike into its existing fleet, offering its users with a range of upgraded specifications which improve accessibility, ride quality and operational efficiencies, without compromising on safety and durability.

The e-bike is agile and manoeuvrable, making it easy for people to handle, especially when parking. Although the maximum speed legally remains at 25 km/h, the streamlined weight translates to a quick start off the mark, allowing users feel the full enjoyment of riding an e-bike.

HumanForest’s 250,000 users have completed over one million rides in London over the last year, avoiding 194 tonnes of CO2 from being emitted into the air and displacing 250,000 car trips. The micro-mobility operator is a favoured option for commuting, with 40 per cent of daily trips being second, third or fourth trips and 10 per cent of HumanForest users taking a trip every three days.

Designed to compete with consumer bikes in terms of rideability and aesthetic, HumanForest’s latest addition appeals to an even wider audience and further encourages a behavioural change among the masses that is required to have a lasting positive impact on the environment and decarbonise cities.

In addition, HumanForest hopes that the increased height range of the seat post will accommodate a greater variety of people and improve the accessibility of its service. The comfortability of the e-bike has also been addressed, with a combination of spoked wheels, soft tyres and a thicker seat absorbing the impact from any bumps on London’s roads.

Agustin Guilisasti, CEO and Founder, HumanForest, said: “We are delighted to raise the bar on micro-mobility in London, improving the sustainability and accessibility of our service with a lightweight frame and longer range battery. HumanForest is supporting a modal shift among Londoners and we’re excited that, with our new e-bike, even more people can enjoy the benefits of active and sustainable travel.”
