Indiegogo is a crowdfunding website for creative and innovative projects. It is a platform to support companies and startups in the initial phase of a concept. It is ideal for products in the production phase, as you can get, in our case, an electric bike at a very attractive price as a way of saying thank you for the support (and also for waiting).

It only takes 2 minutes to complete your order.
