Electric bicycles are rapidly reshaping the way people look at urban mobility in multiple parts of the world. No matter where in the world you look, it’s generally agreed upon that e-bikes are effective means of urban mobility, with a lot of local governments rolling out legislation in support of e-bikes. However, this isn’t to say that e-bikes aren’t without their issues.

Among the issues surrounding the widespread adoption of e-bikes is the risk of fire. While there have been only a few cases of fires pertaining to e-bikes, these fires tend to be difficult to extinguish and spread quickly due to the materials found in e-bike batteries, as well as the fact that most e-bikes are used in the densely populated urban setting.

Juiced Bikes Guarantees Fire Safety With UL-Certification For All E-Bikes

A lot of bike manufacturers have started taking steps ensuring that their products undergo testing to ensure safety, and the latest of which is popular e-bike brand Juiced. Juiced Bikes has a wide selection of e-bikes in its roster, some of which we’ve talked about in the past. With that, the brand has announced that its current e-bikes are certified to TUV safety standards, as well as SGS standards specifically for its battery packs.

Tora Harris, the CEO and Founder of Juiced Bikes stated that a staggering number of e-bikes sold in the US aren’t certified, and that Juiced Bikes provides additional peace of mind regarding the quality and safety of its products by acquiring these certifications. 

Juiced Bikes has been in the business for nearly 15 years now, and its current models consisting of the RipCurrent S, RipCurrent, RipRacer, and CrossCurrent X are all certified to TUV standards, and SGS standards for their battery packs. Diving into the specifics, TUV certification means that a product, in this case, Juiced Bikes' models, has undergone testing specifically for safety, and has been deemed compliant with requirements of national, regional, and international regulations. Similarly, SGS certification means that Juiced's batteries have gone through rigorous testing to ensure longevity, reliability, and safety.
