IF you’re looking for an electric bike that’ll stand out from the crowd, this eye-catching new model could be right up your street.
Airover might look like something from a new Tron film, but believe it or not, this electric bike is available to own today. Created by LA-based firm GoEV Corp, the Airover is a futuristic-looking electric bike that looks like it was made by the same minds behind Tesla’s Blade Runner-esque Cybertruck.

The Airover sports a bulkier carbon fiber frame cut in sharp angles. The design is pretty minimalist, with no colourful logos or graphics adorning the frame. It doesn’t really look like anything else on the electric bike market. But the striking design isn’t a matter of style over substance.
In fact, the Airover’s unique design means the versatile two wheeler could be used by the elderly and people with limited musculoskeletal system function.
GoEV Corp says the Airover’s “design allows you to maximise the fit of the bike to the characteristics of growth, shape, physical capabilities and features of the legislation”.
This is also helped by the bike’s light weight, with the frame tipping the scales at an almost-impossible 2.3kg.
The Airover is capable of reaching a top speed of 28mph, but this will have to be limited to 15.5mph in the UK due to legal restrictions.
It’s powered by a 750W motor, has a removable battery for easy charging, and comes with a smart colour display that offers crucial information such as speed, real-time power and a battery display.
The Airover has eight-speed Shimano gears, hydraulic brakes, three different riding modes, and an impressive range of between 50 and 90 miles (depending on whether you’re using the throttle or pedal assist).
While the bikes’ chunky tires means the Airover can be ridden over a wide variety of terrains. If you like the sound of all this there’s one important thing to point out – Airover currently isn’t available in stores.
