FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif. — Airstream Inc., manufacturer of the iconic “silver bullet” travel trailer, is extending the adventure to include bike paths.

The Ohio-based company has partnered with California-based Pedego Electric Bikes to produce the Pedego Airstream Electric Bike. Priced from $2,995, Pedego Airstream Electric Bikes are available in brushed aluminum to match Airstream’s classic style. They are available at Airstream dealerships and Pedego stores.

The bike comes with Airstream’s name on the chain guard, as well as the company’s badge for the front emblem. The bike will be shown at Airstream’s annual five-day event, Alumapalooza, at the Airstream Inc. factory in Jackson Center, May 30 through June 4.

“Airstream customers love the outdoors and the open road, so we are thrilled to partner with Pedego and allow Airstreamers to take their journeys even further with these one-of-a-kind aluminum electric bikes,” said Airstream President and CEO Bob Wheeler.

“The Pedego Airstream electric bike is a natural fit for those who love the open road for adventure,” said Don DiCostanzo, Pedego Electric Bikes CEO and co-founder. “These bikes compliment Airstream’s legacy of quality, innovation, luxury and fun.”

This partnership was conceived and executed by Meriwether Group, a firm dedicated to accelerating strategy and outcomes for extension, licensing, distribution, and mergers and acquisitions.
