Ahooga Continues International Expansion With The First Folding-Yet-Comfortable, Electric-Yet-Ultra-Lightweight Bike. For Smarter Cities And Better Lives.

BRUSSELS, 15-Mar-2017 — /EuropaWire/ — Ahooga Continues International Expansion With The First Folding-Yet-Comfortable, Electric-Yet-Ultra-Lightweight Bike. For Smarter Cities And Better Lives.

Early 2015, Belgian startup Ahooga introduces an ultra-lightweight folding, elegant and concern-solving eBike, thereby “dissolving obstacles to Happy & Smart Cities”.

Very much inspired by cities like Copenhagen and the work of contemporary urbanists (eg. Jan Gehl, Charles Montgomery), the co-founders strongly believed in this: the secret of the world’s happiest cities lies on pleasant commuting.

So they started Ahooga, creating the first folding-yet-comfortable, electric-yet-ultra-lightweight bike. It brings to life an exclusive combination of features: ultra-lightweight, folding, electric (or not), elegant, compact, stiff, speedy, stable, comfortable, highly customizable and easy to carry when folded. Connoisseurs know what we’re talking about.

Unlike most e-bikes, when the assistance is off, the Ahooga eBike remains a lightweight bicycle, easy and fun to ride. More, its design brings you a safe and fantastic riding experience. The Ahooga Bike is a proven product and has already been delivered to hundreds of happy riders.

Cherry on the cake, it is available in no less than 215 colors with matt or glossy finish.

But the picture would not be complete without this. They wanted to make this bike – that did not exist yet – available at a great price. Thus they chose for a Best Value For Money strategy, a real challenge for bicycles designed in Belgium and manufactured in Europe.

March 2017, after a controlled launch (read local) in order to maintain proximity with the customers – proximity which the company qualifies as vital to the product and users’ happiness – Ahooga continues its international expansion, henceforth supported by a growing network of proficient dealers (40+) in no less than 10 European countries, including UK (Belgium, The Netherlands, Luxembourg, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, France, Germany, Finland, United Kingdom).

More recently, during the very exclusive Berliner Fahrradschau, Ahooga unveiled its new collections and options, among which a disc break version and a new battery adding 25km of autonomy to the standard range (…). Besides specialized press recognition, the international show resulted into exciting new brands partnerships and new markets activation to be announced soon.

About The Project

Better Commuting. Better Cities. Better Lives.

“We dissolve Obstacles To Happy Cities”… Come again?

It all started because we felt our home city was unhappy. Don’t get us wrong, Brussels is a super fun city to live in, in many ways. However, mobility wise, let’s just say there is room for improvement (as in most metropolises in Europe). Very much inspired by cities like Copenhagen and the work of contemporary urbanists (eg. Jan Gehl, Charles Montgomery), we strongly believe in this: the secret of the world’s happiest cities lies on pleasant commuting.

So we started Ahooga, bringing to life a bike that combines 4 never-seen-before characteristics: folding, comfortable, electric, ultra-lightweight. For better cities. Better lives. That’s what our project is actually about.

For the sake of a better adoption, we believe that, like clothing, your bike is the extension of your personality and should resemble you. That’s why we made it available in no less than 215 colors with matt or glossy finish.

But the picture would not be complete without this. We wanted to make this bike – that did not exist yet – available at a great price. Thus we chose for a Best Value For Money strategy, a real challenge for bicycles designed in Brussels and manufactured in Europe – which by the way was a deliberate choice. We could have produced the Ahooga for a (much) cheaper cost in another continent, but we did not as we preferred a European project.

As a final touch, we did not want to imprison our customers into a closed eco-system, where choice is limited and price is usually high. So we went for an open eco-system, where sky is the limit in terms of customization and autonomy.

But that’s just in a nutshell. Want to know more? Get in touch with our passionate team, we’ll welcome you with a smile and a cup of coffee/tea.

Ahoo-Whaaaat? We Owe You An Explanation

AHOOGA is an onomatopoeia. It’s the sound an antique automobile’s horn made in the 1920’s. Just another milestone in the history of mobility. It was adopted by the movie industry as a sound effect symbolizing astonishment and excitement, amongst other emotions.
