Lopifit Bicycle:The invention, developed in Holland but now available in the US is an electric walking bike combining a treadmill and a bike. It would be years before his design concept would come to fruition. But from the moment he took it outdoors it gained worldwide attention and a faithful following of Lopifit users, converts from walking and bicycling now available to the US!
Lopifit Features: The walking bicycle comes with an electric assist from the Quantum Motor wrapped in a solid frame made of steel. A lopifit allows you to walk/ride up to four times faster than if they were simply walking. The assist, in combination with the gears, boosts a rider’s walking pace up to the speed of riding a bicycle. Not only is this new invention a good, healthy way for you to get your exercise but it’s good for the environment and its a lot of fun.
How Lopifit Works: To ride the Lopifit, you begin by pushing the treadmill backwards with your feet in a regular walking motion. From there a sensor registers the movement of the treadmill and signals an electronic device to activate the motor. The motor will support you to continue the walking movement. It’s a very simple yet ingenious design. If and when you need to stop, engaging the handbrake will shut off the motor immediately, and going downhill activates a free wheel function so you don’t careen out of control.
Lopifit Extras: You can see from the pictures the bicycle has been designed with a “luggage rack” that you can strap cargo cases, baskets, beach bags and other things to. It also features LED lighting on front and back to ensure maximum visibility at night so you don’t get hit. The built-in battery is good for a maximum range 35 miles of riding/walking time, before you need to charge the Lopifit. It also offers a display to show your battery status, so you can keep track of it and not run out of juice while you’re on the go. Lopifit US is working on offering Lopifit bike accessories for purchase online – stay tuned!
A recent Lopifit owner submitted this testimony on her switch over to the Lopifit, we are thrilled to be sharing with so many all over the country. Lorraine from Georgia submitted, “As a competitive cyclist who can no longer ride a bicycle I was feeling very sad until my husband spotted the Lopifit on Facebook. I knew immediately this was the solution to my problem of missing the wind in my face/hair and watching the beautiful countryside go by. I am LOVING my new ride. I name all of my bikes and this one I have named “Hope” as it has given me a reason to smile and get back out there! I LOVE my new Lopifit. I am amazed at how fast this ride can go and I love speed!!! It’s taken me four rides to feel comfortable to get out on the roads with it. It did take a few tries for me to feel like I had it and now I am unstoppable. Rode 14 miles on it today and felt like I had a nice workout. I have a nice bag I strapped onto the back carrier rack to carry replacement tubes/repair kits and such. I have a few more things I want to add to it – I am excited about this new and fun way to get around!”
