Maxim Magazine just gave the new Interceptor III a glowing reviewing, saying that if you ride a Pedego, you’ll look 20 years younger. In an article by tech writer and reviewer David Weiss, the Interceptor was deemed so cool, anyone riding it has the good chance of looking as cool as actor Steve McQueen.

In the article, which appeared on yesterday, Weiss writes, “As a man firmly committed to the principle that appearance trumps reality, the Pedego Electric Bike pushes all of my buttons at once. First off, it looks all beach cruiser deluxe with its fat tires and neon color scheme, which could easily make you look 20 years younger right off the bat—especially with your de rigueurhelmet and shades on. You might just come off like Steve McQueen if you’re not careful.”

The popular American men’s magazine then goes on to list the cool qualities of the Interceptor including:

  • “tireless” lithium battery
  • ample and comfortable seat
  • gives you the emotional insurance you need to initiate exercise
  • smooth-shifting, 7-speed Shimano gear hub
  • grabby-good Avid BB7 brakes and a responsive twist-grip throttle
  • direct-drive hub motor
  • 48V/10,500-watt battery
  • middle name is fun
  • And finally, “you will easily out-style your pokey neighbors as they labor toward oblivion on their old-school, analog two-wheelers.”

Weiss then goes on to describe the “seeming ability to glide down the boulevard at 20 mph with your glutes as free from stress as a yogi on muscle relaxants. Thank Pedego’s pedal assist mode, accomplished with a wee twist of the wrist, which delivers a jolt of juice to the rear-wheel hub motor when your own energy reserves are flagging—or when you hit an uphill grade, whichever comes first.”
