Silicon Valley Startup's Hybrid Bicycles Make Cities More Livable

Tempo Hybrid Bicycles Fuel Change for Greener, Healthier Lifestyle

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 16, 2015) - Silicon Valley's tech boom has propelled companies to global prominence, but the frenzied economic activity has plagued the valley with paralyzing traffic congestion. Local startup Tempo Bicycles launches hybrid bicycles to combat the ever increasing problem of traffic congestion and to empower everyone to live a greener, healthier lifestyle.

The hybrid bicycle is a new form of personal mobility that seamlessly combines a rider's pedaling power with a compact, electrical motor to enable riders to go farther and faster than traditional bicycles. Tempo hybrid bicycles use software control and sensors to measure the speed and a rider's effort to determine how much assistance the zero-emissions motor provides based on riding conditions such as hills and head wind. By simply pressing a button, a rider can select the level of assistance the motor will provide.

"Hybrid bicycles combine human and electric power to make it easier and fun to ride. By making everyday riding more enjoyable, we enable everyone regardless of age or riding experience to be more mobile and active. Our hybrid bicycles allow people to embrace a lifestyle change that not only benefits them but also their communities and the environment," states Van Nguyen, Tempo President.

Tempo will debut three models of its hybrid bicycle family at Sea Otter Classic in Monterey (booth #360) from April 16th - 19th:

  • Carmel: Features sporty styling and a powerful 500 watt motor with a range of up to 40 miles, Carmel is perfect for commuting to work or exploring the city.
  • Santa Barbara: Take a quick ride to the market or go touring on the weekend with the comfort and convenience of a step-through frame. The quiet, smooth and maintenance-free belt drive and automatic shifting make Santa Barbara a joy to ride.
  • La Jolla: This limited edition model comes fully equipped with luxury amenities like smartphone integration and carbon fiber frame.

Tempo hybrid bicycles are available now through an exclusive network of authorized dealers. Contact for more info or visit the Tempo booth #360 at Sea Otter Classic for a demo ride.
