Cut down on emissions and traffic time with a GenZe 200 ebike

GenZe introduces the 200 series e-Bike in the video, “Bent Out of Shape”
A car-less (or at least, less car-filled) future may be growing increasingly viable thanks to a new ebike solution from GenZe. The Silicon Valley, California-based company recently introduced its 200-Series ebike as part of its push to revolutionize personal transportation. Hoping to serve as an alternative to cars, these zero-emissions ebikes feature an integrated battery and LCD display, as well as a host of other tech-forward features that are often more common on a four-wheeled ]than a two-wheeled vehicle.

Lightweight and highly portable, the 200-Series ebike connects to a companion smartphone app, which allows riders to plan routes, track activity, map distances, and even connect with other riders. But more importantly, it helps commuters avoid gridlock traffic and reduce their carbon footprint.

“Living with daily gridlock has unfortunately become the norm for many people,” said Tom Valasek, chief marketing officer for GenZe. “Ebikes are the perfect solution to easily getting around town – and they can even be your main vehicle – but you shouldn’t have to compromise technology, convenience, and other benefits in your daily commute. To prove this, we developed these ebikes with innovative features, and intentionally made this technology affordable to encourage ebikes as a daily transportation option.”

Much of the technology is related to the companion GenZe app, which receives real-time data from vehicle sensors located throughout the bike. The mounted LCD display behaves much like a dashboard, showing riders their trip data, riding mode, and more. There’s also a built-in phone mount and USB charger to help riders stay connected on the go (though you shouldn’t text and pedal).

“Our goal with these ebikes is providing a practical solution to traffic that is effective and fun,” said Valasek. “Since an ebike allows you to control your physical input better than a conventional bike, you can comfortably ride long distances and compete with friends via our smartphone app – even while commuting to work or running errands.”

The GenZe 200-series ebike has three riding modes: Throttle, which involves no pedaling; Pedal Assist, which offers boosted pedaling; and Pedal, which of course features pedaling. The ebikes have easily removable batteries that can be plugged into a standard outlet for a quick recharge in about 3.5 hours. A 350W motor provides up to 50 power-assisted miles at up to 20 miles per hour. The 200-Series ebikes retail for $1,900 and are available online at and at GenZe retail locations across the U.S.

I was wrong. E-bikes are so practical, they’re a transit cheat code
An Aventon Level 2 ebike sits outside a grocery store.

Confession: Despite loving both bikes and gadgets, e-bikes never excited me. Compared to my bicycle, e-bikes seemed unfair. Compared to my motorcycle, they seemed slow. Compared to my car, they seemed impractical.

But with $1,500 federal e-bike rebates potentially on the horizon at part of E-Bike Act, I decided it was past time to reconsider. Not just because 30% off would make them way more accessible, but because the entire idea that e-bikes could be worthy of a rebate changed the way I looked at them: less as toys, more as transit. Had I written off an entire way of getting around because I was looking at it the wrong way?

EcoFlow launches Delta 2 Max solar generator for home emergencies and outdoor adventures
ecoflow's delta max portable power station on a table

EcoFlow, a manufacturer of portable energy solutions, has announced the launch of the Delta 2 Max -- an eco-friendly solar generator that could replace your current gas generator. The device clocks in at 2,048 watts and should deliver enough power to keep your home running for two days as an emergency backup (or many more if you’re using it as an off-grid power source).

The original Delta Max was a popular item for outdoor adventures, as it could connect to the existing lineup of portable EcoFlow solar panels to juice up gadgets while out in the backcountry. That legacy continues with the Delta 2 Max, which features an upgraded lithium iron phosphate (LFP) battery for a longer life cycle and faster charging.
