Electric Bikes & Skateboards Return for the 2018 Grand Rapids Boat Show

Electric Bike Place (powered by MACkite) makes a return for the 2018 Grand Rapids Boat Show displaying their electric bike and electric skateboards.

This year, Electric Bike Place is simplifying their design by focusing on two out of the eight bike brands: Pedego and Raleigh. Raleigh focuses on creating functional bikes with fun designs and moderate price points. Pedego is the largest electric bike brand in the United States, featuring a variety of cruiser, commuter, and mountain riding styles. Electric Bike Place will have both bikes for guests to ride on a stationary trainer.

Electric skateboards will also be available. This year, Electric Bike Place will be showing the Evolve GTX Street and All-Terrain electric skateboards. These are the latest design from Evolve, traveling upwards of 22 to 25 miles per hour and having a range of 18 miles. Electric Bike Place is the only Evolve Skateboard dealer in Michigan.

The following specials will be available during the show:

  • FREE Street conversion kit with the purchase of an Evolve GTX electric skateboard (a $160 – $200 value)
  • $200 to $500-off any in-store or show electric bike purchase
  • Half-off full day (8-hour) electric bike rentals for two.
