Ride-sharing firm Tier launches new third-generation e-bike

23 Mar 2023

Leading shared mobility firm Tier has begun the rollout of its new E-bike 3 across the streets of London, with the new rental two-wheeler gaining several new features over the previous model. 

Tier, which operates e-scooter and e-bike rental fleets in London, Milton Keynes and York says its new E-bike 3 is “an evolution of the previous model”, with the new features added to “improve the experience for both riders and Tier’s operations teams”. 

The Tier E-bike has an upgraded battery pack compared to the previous generation, offering better range and easier swapping for Tier operators. 

The battery pack is also compatible with the firm’s new recently unveiled Tier 6 e-scooter, which will allow the ride-sharing firm to use a single battery across its entire fleet in the future. 

Alongside the upgraded battery, the Tier E-bike 3 has a new matte paint scheme, with the most commonly used parts of the bike - including the kickstand and seat adjustment collar - highlighted in orange to improve visibility of the machine. 

Tier has also tweaked the new e-bike’s electric motor controller, which the firm says delivers power more smoothly and makes pedalling feel more natural. 

“The new TIER E-bike 3 is designed to make shared e-bikes more approachable and less intimidating, especially to new users, by highlighting the parts of the bike they can adjust and touch to make their ride comfortable and safe,” Fred Jones, regional general manager northern Europe. 

“With the E-bike 3 we are also increasing the number of bikes we have on the streets of London making it easier than ever to find a TIER bike and catering to the ever increasing demand for our e-bike service across London.”

Tier E-bike 2s will be taken out of operation, refurbished and then put back into the firm’s fleet to support increased demand in other markets.
