The story behind the Ostrichoo e-bikes is not one of wonderful anecdotes and not a special philosophy that is passed on from generation to generation. No, the story behind Ostrichoo is much simpler than that. The story does not start very long ago, with a Dutch boy who saw that things could be better in the world of e-bikes. Much better.
Everyone has seen one before: e-bikes. Maybe you have tried one yourself. But be honest: why didn't you buy it? The high price of an e-bike is a very important reason why very few young people buy an e-bike. But not only that. Looking at all the e-bikes, the founder of Ostrichoo (Michael Hu) thought there was an urgent need to change the appearance of the e-bikes. The e-bike could easily be made cooler and more stylish. And so, the dream was born of making an e-bike that is accessible to everyone, especially the younger generation.
Dreams keep dreaming as long as you do nothing with it and so Michael rolled up his sleeves. The Ostrichoo company was established to produce sustainable e-bikes that, compared to other e-bikes:
In order to achieve the above mentioned three points, problems had to be tackled first. Most problems with e-bikes have to do with the battery. The e-bike batteries, that are on most electric bicycles, last only 1 or 2 years before something breaks. Repairing it is risky and you quickly pay 500 euros for a new one. We found a way to greatly improve the quality of the e-bike battery. The batteries of an Ostrichoo e-bike will not last 2 but at least 4 years! Charging an e-bike should also be faster, we thought ... And so, we made sure that you could charge our e-bike within 30 minutes. That way different than the 5 to 7 hours that are necessary for charging most of the e-bikes!
