E-road bikes are big in Europe, but the hot new motor is waiting for US approval

Postby Ross » Thu Aug 23, 2018 4:26 am

It was a hard-to-miss trend at Eurobike this year. Electric drive systems are now appearing on the holiest of holy bikes: the high-end performance road bike.

Several brands, including classic road bike brands like Pinarello, Wilier Triestina, Bianchi and Focus, have launched new e-road bike models, and other brands are queuing up their own offerings.

Many of these bikes are coming to the U.S. market — but not as quickly as their brands would prefer. That's because the hot drive system of the moment, the compact Evation unit made by Munich startup Fazua, has not yet received U.S. regulatory approval. Fazua officials expect to receive the green light in the first half of 2019.
