LOS ANGELES-- Durban Bikes is launching two exciting, vibrant new models into its 2016 lineup and unveiling a refresh of its entire portfolio today at the 2015 Interbike Conference in Las Vegas. All-new Rio and Sampa bikes boast stylish new designs and the brand’s first-ever 24” wheels, and the Sampa electric bike is Durban’s foray into the folding eBike world, providing improved convenience for cyclists everywhere.
“Durban’s styling and approach to folding bikes is invigorating an industry that hasn’t seen a ton of innovation for years,” said David White, managing partner of Durban Bikes in North America. “We’re champions of convenience for those living in the city, and the new stylish and affordable Sampa eBike will ease commuters’ burdens even further.”
Introducing the Rio and Sampa
The new lines, with names inspired by the brand’s Brazilian heritage, mark the company’s first significant product updates since entering the U.S. market in late 2014. They range from $349.99 to $1,799.99 MSRP and will be available online later this year. The Sampa e and eXL eBikes feature a 350-watt motor with 9AH inner-frame battery, as well as a USB charging port that will charge a riders’ mobile electronics.
“For years we’ve been studying how people use their bikes around the world and infusing that into everything Durban does,” said Leonardo Mello, managing partner and founder of Durban Bikes. Mello, a global expert in bike development, is known for his innovative and vibrant folding bikes designs. “Our bikes have the soul of the international market and the styling of the colorful, creative South American spirit.”
