E-mobility is the future. Although cycling is very durable and highly ecologically friendly, production practices in the traditional bicycle manufacturing industry are not. More than 90% of the development and production of bicycles takes place in Asia. This makes us dependent on countries like China and Taiwan.
AT ÅSKA, we deliberately chose to keep the design, development and production of our bikes in Europe. In doing so, we keep our know-how local AND emit 30% less CO2.
We specifically select European suppliers with a local footprint. This is how we can be sure that the products we source are of a high standard of quality, developed and manufactured under fair circumstances. Sustainability is not just about providing an alternative for polluting cars. It’s also about the way in which products are made: in safe working conditions where labour is fairly rewarded.
Speed pedelecs are one of the very few real alternatives to cars.
