American Rebel Holdings, Inc. AREB announced the signing of a letter of intent with Deerfield, Florida based Sierra E-Life, a full-service USA manufacturer of E-Bikes.
“We are very excited to diversify our product offerings, thereby enhancing American Rebel as a lifestyle brand, by entering the futuristic, technology-savvy market of E-Bikes,” said American Rebel CEO Andy Ross. “We think the E-Bike market is ready for the E-Bike with an attitude! American Rebel’s grit, style and patriotic appeal will carry through to every product we design and put the American Rebel name on.”
American Rebel, in collaboration with Sierra E-Life, has designed three distinct E-Bike models: the Patriot 500, the Freedom 750 and the Rebel 1000. The Patriot 500, the Freedom 750 and the Rebel 1000 are projected to be Made in the USA with global components.
"Sierra E-Life is excited to work with Andy Ross in the production of their American Rebel brand of E-Bikes,” said Robert Provost, CEO of Sierra E-Life. “We believe the bikes are the perfect fit for the American Rebel Patriotic market."
According to Fortune Business Insights, the global E-Bike market is expected to grow to over $92 Billion by 2029. “Many of our current 400+ wholesale dealers already carry or have an interest in carrying E-Bikes,” said Andy Ross. “And we already attend sporting goods buying group shows such as Nation’s Best Sports and Sports, Inc. The E-Bikes are very compatible with our safes.”
An example of the seismic shift to more bicycle friendly communities, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that the New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) had constructed a record 28.6 lane miles of new protected bike lanes across all five boroughs of New York City in 2020. Biking saw an obvious surge in popularity during COVID-19 lockdowns, but John Pucher, a professor emeritus of urban planning at Rutgers University who specializes in biking said, “The good news is that bike networks were expanding in the U.S. even before the pandemic.”
Between 1991 and 2021, there was a six-fold increase in paved, off-road trails, from 5,904 miles to 39,329 miles. Washington D.C., Minneapolis, Chicago, and Los Angeles more than doubled their city bike lanes from 2000 to 2017, while New York and Seattle more than tripled theirs. And the increase in protected bike lanes is even more dramatic: Their total length, nationwide, went from only 34 miles in 2006 to 425 miles in 2018. With the surge of activity in the pandemic, Pucher estimates that number is now well over 600 miles.
