After a successful career in the restaurant business, Sean Lupton-Smith decided it was time to take on a new venture – one that would create real, everlasting change in the world. Inspired by the power of transportation and mobility, Sean realized electric bikes represent something tremendously special. It opens doors for the non-cyclist, the person who normally would not consider riding a bike because of hills, distance, age, fitness levels or even the simple inconvenience of arriving to work sweaty. An electric bike negates all of those stumbling blocks, motivating non-cyclists, to get on the saddle. Sean began designing and building his e-bike in Newport Beach, California, and he soon realized that he built an electric cruiser focused on helping the 99% of the population who currently don’t cycle. Instead, experience all of the freedom, benefits, and fun of riding.
Combining luxury and leisure with conscious consumerism, Electric Bike Company is paving the way for the next mode of transportation.
After a steep, arduous and invaluable learning curve, Sean and his staff dedicated themselves to creating the safest, most technologically-sound e-bike and battery on the market. To do this, Sean bought into Turn-Life, a battery company that produces batteries for electric bikes, boats, golf carts and more.
In doing this, Sean and his engineers completely redesigned the old Electric Bike Company battery to include two temperature sensors in each battery pack that relay a warning to the Smart Battery Management System if the battery becomes too hot. If this happens, the system immediately shuts off the battery, thus reducing the risk of a fire to almost none. In addition, each cell within the battery is now individually inspected and fused by Turn-Life engineers before it is put onto a bike to ensure maximum safety and quality.
