The Light Speed GLYD is an urban city bike. It has a range of 35 kms and a top speed of 25 kmph. It has a 3 level pedal booster that helps the rider in traffic conditions. The Light Speed DRYFT on the other hand is a Mountain bike and comeswith a range of 50kms and a top speed of 25 kmph. This one gets 5 pedal boost and front shock absorbers too! The concept of the LightSpeed is the baby of Rahil, Rushad, Krishna and Murtaza. These guys being extremely environment conscious came up with this idea. They come with degrees from India (Symbiosis, NID), UK (Coventry University, Sheffield University), Australia (Monash University) and experience in management and the automobile industry.
The Ahmedabad based, Lightspeed Mobility team says, “We, as a team, wanted to create bikes that will not just ease commute, but make it an experience. Additionally, we wanted the bikes to be energy efficient and a companion to anyone wanting some good cardio. And that’s the thought that drove us to put together the two eBikes, GLYD and DRYFT.” Ranganath Thota, Founder & CEO Fueladream says, “I think city commuters often ignore alternative means of transport. LightSpeed eBikes are a great investment for all those looking for energy and cost-effective means of commute.”
