TRAVEL GREEN THIS EARTH DAY... RIDE A JETSON E-BIKE

 

 

All Purchases Made Between April 22-30 Will Receive Free Shipping & a $50 Donation to Carbonfund.org


April 19, 2012 (New York, NY)--Jetson E-Bike, the first affordable, eco-friendly, super stylish electric bike is celebrating Earth Day 2012 with a special free shipping discount on all bikes purchased between April 22- 30. Jetson will also donate $50 per bike to Carbonfund.org Foundation, a leader in the fight against global warming by creating easy and affordable ways to reduce carbon footprints.

 

Jetson meets a growing consumer desire to find safe, sustainable and environmentally friendly transportation alternatives. A trend that has steadily increased for both city and non-city residents, with the rapid rise of gasoline prices, continually clogged roadways, expensive taxi fares, and consistently crowded and expensive public transportation.

 

The electric bike requires no license or registration to drive and runs on highest-grade quality rechargeable lithium battery on the market, which allows 40mph on each full charge for 1,000 lifetime charges.  The Jetson bike offers both the classic bike and pedal experience with the option of simply "going electric" when and where you want and need it to power up.

 

With speed up to 20 mph, a forty-mile range per charge and a 500w motor, LCD digital screen and heavy-duty disc brake system, Jetson is safe and legal for urban and non-urban biking.

 

To activate the free shipping and donation to Carbonfund.org, purchases must be made via www.jetsonbike.com or by calling (888) 976-9904, using promotional code "EARTH."

 

The Jetson E-Bike is also available in the Summer Catalog of Hammacher and Schlemmer, at the NY retail location of HammacherSchlemmer and online at both Brookstone.com and HammacherSchlemmer.com.  

 

About Jetson:

 

Two friends from New York founded Jetson with a vision to start an environmentally and socially conscious company that would add value to people and their communities.  Coming from a background in big business, they decided to leave the rat race and follow their passions. The result is the launch of Jetson, the first eco-friendly electric bike for people of all ages.  For more information go to www.jetsonbike.com
