TIER Mobility has announced that it has started rolling out its new TIER E-bike 3 to the streets of London. The E-bike 3 is an evolution of the previous model, bringing several enhanced features to improve the experience for both riders and TIER’s operations teams.
The new E-bike 3 features a new matte paint scheme as well as upgraded touchpoints, with the most commonly used parts of the bike highlighted in orange to aid visibility and improve accessibility for riders, which includes the kickstand, seat adjustment collar and the bell. Less visible is the updated electric motor controller, which delivers power more smoothly and makes pedalling feel more natural.
When it comes to power, the micro-mobility operator‘s E-bike 3 features an upgraded battery pack, offering better range and easier swapping for the TIER operations team. The new battery pack is also cross-compatible with the company’s recently unveiled TIER 6 e-scooter, paving the way for a single battery to be used across its fleet in the future.
Fred Jones, TIER VP and Regional General Manager Northern Europe, said: “The new TIER E-bike 3 is designed to make shared e-bikes more approachable and less intimidating, especially to new users, by highlighting the parts of the bike they can adjust and touch to make their ride comfortable and safe. With the E-bike 3 we are also increasing the number of bikes we have on the streets of London, making it easier than ever to find a TIER bike and catering to the ever increasing demand for our e-bike service across London.
“Our fleet of E-bike 2s will be refurbished and will go on to support increased demand in other markets as well as upcoming initiatives across the UK. We hope users will enjoy the new bikes as much as we have enjoyed testing them.”
