African contributions to a greener planet haven’t caught the public eye, yet, but we think Opibus is about to change that, in a big way.
It began in Sweden as a research project on how electric mobility could be implemented in emerging markets and it ended up becoming reality in Kenya.
What We Love About Opibus
The Opibus eBike is badass.
It’s capable of handling the toughest of terrains, in one of the hardest environments on Earth and doing so with ease without costing a fortune.
It saves the rider a fortune by reducing the need for fuel and it cuts down on CO2 emissions, something that developing nations tend to produce far too much of.
And it looks great, it has a genuine style and vision that makes it stand out from the crowd.
Final Thoughts On Opibus
There’s more to Opibus than e-bikes too, they’re also heavily involved in converting all types of vehicle used in Africa to electrical equivalents.
However, it’s the e-bike that we’ve fallen in love with and we hope that it’s soon available to buy in Western markets too.
Until then, why not check out these e-bike conversion kits, or our favorite e-bike brands or if you already have an e-bike why not check out these brilliant bike campers?
