What It Does Best: The Pedego Tandem is one of the only high-end electric tandem bikes on the market. On top of the style & comforts to be expected with any Pedego bike, the Tandem is outfitted with a 48V battery to provide the extra acceleration needed to power two riders. If you’re looking for an electric tandem bike you don’t have many options to choose from, but fortunately Pedego has put out something very solid.
Battery: The standard battery for theTandem is 48V 10Ah. This extra voltage (V) provides extra acceleration, an especially handy feature when climbing hills. You can also upgrade the battery’s capacity to 15 amp hours (Ah) to make it last 50% longer.
Brakes: The Pedego Tandem comes with Avid BB-7 front disc brakes and a Dia-Compe rear hub brake, both of which provide reliable stopping power. This gives you the ability to lock the rear wheel, a valuable theft deterrent.
Purpose-built: The frame is purpose built, which means it was designed from scratch to be an electric bike by building the battery into the frame. This helps to hide the wiring and offers greater protection to the battery & controller.
Step-Through Design: The Pedego Tandem has a step-through design making it very easy to get on and off.
Motor: The Pedego Tandem comes with a 500W gearless, brushless rear hub motor. Gearless motors are quieter and contain less parts to maintain than their geared counterparts. They’re also more efficient on flat terrain. In contrast, geared motors provide more torque which comes in handy on hills, but the Tandem’s motor & 48V battery makes it more than capable for almost any incline.
Riding Modes: The Pedego Tandem can be ridden like a moped by applying the throttle or as a regular bicycle by pedaling. Pedego wisely left out their usual cadence pedal assist - there is enough to focus on with two riders.
Top Speed: Like most electric bikes sold in the US, the Pedego Tandem has a top speed with throttle of 20 mph in keeping with federal law.
Drivetrain: The Pedego Tandem is a single-speed bike. This is one less thing riders have to worry about when they have the additional task of coordinating with one another.
Range: The Pedego Tandem has a range of up to 30 miles.* Most riders should get at least 20 miles from the bike even under heavy use.
Sizing Options: The Pedego Tandem comes in one standard size. Please contact us about specific fit needs.
Tires: The Pedego Tandem comes with 26” x 2.3” Kendra tires. These wide, cushy tires make for a comfortable, stable ride.
Warranty: Pedego offers a one-year warranty on the bike and a three-year warranty on the battery.
Accessories: The Pedego Tandem comes with an extended chain guard to protect the clothing of both riders. The rear seat can also be converted into a cargo rack with an add-on. We have a lot of experience outfitting bikes with additional accessories, so be sure to reach out if you need anything else.
*Range will always vary depending on use of the throttle, the pedal assist setting, how much you pedal, the type of terrain, and the rider’s weight.
