Petal’s primary service is cargo mobility. This is why cars are great, we use them to move ourselves and our stuff. We make cycle haulers for short trip solutions. We make automotive range mobility at the price-scale of an e-bike.
Our TR-1 model is an e-cargo bike, powerful while agile in the bike lane. Our QD-4 is a self-standing, cycle-hauling quad with a greater load threshold than the TR-1. Both self-standing and strong, the QD-4 adaptable for a variety of work-utility applications.
We ride to haul, which fundamentally changes the orientation of the operator. Our equipment is designed to ride with a low center of gravity for greater stability & efficiency. Additionally, this new orientation brings the added benefits of greater comfort, visibility and leg-strength. We use Promoly steel frames with integrated technology.
We make e-cargo bikes for low emissions with cargo room. We keep track of equipment activity & security with our app. Petal cycles are equipped with pedal-assist to boost cargo hauling capability. Our equipment is electric, running on lithium ion batteries.
Our fleets are supported by remote, pop-up docking stations comprised of mobile pieces of equipment. These are designed to receive power from our primary power source to recharge the cargo equipment's' batteries at docking stations, for low recharge times. When operating within our station network, our equipment can go for 40 miles with 60-second stops and on again, in perpetuity.
We install pop-ups, remote docking stations along with fleets of equipment and a cache of removable, rechargeable batteries. Our remote docking system is designed to sustain a continuous flow of quick power for swift equipment reboot and optimum fleet efficiency.
We train a team of Petal riders to perform tasks using our shuttle program. We also render our fleets available for riders that are commuting short trips within the shuttle network, using equipment swiftly and returning it at a respective docking station when done. Additionally, Petal equipment is made available for rent at hourly or daily rates.
Snow is an important topic for Petal. While two-wheeled bikes are challenging if not prohibitive in the snow, Petal’s trikes and quads, with grip tires, perform well in snowy conditions. We find that people enjoy the weather, especially when the snow is falling.
At Petal we believe in a preparedness-first approach to riding through the elements, our equipment is our boldest statement toward elemental readiness. Additionally, we prescribe preparedness in our riders when they meet the elements, so that tasks are finished unencumbered while the operator is minimally affected by precipitation & extreme temperature.
