Toward Route Zero created the annual series of bike fairs to generate relevant awareness and excitement about new electric bike innovations such as the zero-emissions electric motor technology harnessed by Tempo Ebikes. The founder of Tempo, Vân Nguyen, has been involved with the event for the past few years and continues to work with Toward Route Zero founder, Antonio Capretta, to make the event more successful each year.
“One of our challenges is that even when people do know what electric bikes are, they have never test rode them and have not fully considered it as an option for themselves,” says Antonio Capretta, who went on to say “This event has played a vital role in creating excitement, educating and inspiring younger adults in a way that is fitness oriented and pro-climate. It is really eye opening for them to see the ebike capabilities.”
Tempo understands the importance of approachability, meticulously designing its ebikes to be as sleek in design and intuitive, as possible. Tempo uses auto shifting technology for a smoother ride and hydraulic disc brakes for consistent control and more stopping power. Tempo’s sophisticated software controls provide feedback including speed, battery levels and motor assistance level and its carbon belt drive makes for a quieter ride.
