Don t be so E-Mo It s just your E-Go

Press Release: Kona

Are you tired of the nasty looks from people on the trails as you effortlessly glide up a steep climb? Does it make you sad that people don’t understand that eBikes are really freaking fun? Do you ever wish your eBike battery was invisible?

Wish no more!

With the Kona E-Mo, your eBike battery is as good as gone. Our patented camo technology hugs your battery with a perfectly matched pattern so it just disappears into the background. No more judgy looks!

Our 4.2-way stretch technology has been scienced to fit all eBike batteries, no matter what brand of bike you ride! Its weatherproof skin ensures your battery stays warm and dry. Just like a baby seal!

Kona E-Mo is designed with your style in mind and comes in four great colorways. For the old-school rider, we’ve created classic infantry. Dik Cox Special Infantry is perfect for the person looking for a little more flair on their bikes. For the ladies, we’ve created a super unique “women’s specific” pattern that is sure to be a hit among the double X chromosome crowd. After all, women LOVE pink! But wait! There’s more! For those of you who just have to have your adorable little pooch with you on every ride, we’ve created a special edition Fur Baby Premium Infantry CR DL. Now your bike blends into your dog. What could be better?

Don t be so E-Mo It s just your E-Go

So while others are struggling with their e-Go, you can be happy with your E-Mo! Limited quantities are available on the Kona Webstore! We'll see you on the trails (or maybe not! Who knows!)

 Finally, I was tired of hiding my pedal assist technology in the seat tube so my competitors didn't see it. This will make changing the battery so much easier Wink

 This actually has some merit. I ride snomo trails with an efat. Riding in cold weather saps peak power and capacity. I've been looking for a neoprene sleeve of some sort to provide some insulation and wind protection. A joke this is not.

 Have you ever considered this? Does March really have 32 days and April 1st is just a prank?

 An insulated battery cover might actually me a good idea for e-fat bike use in the winter. Could maybe even work in a secondary compartment for storing beverages.
