DŌST Electric Bikes Sees Growth in U.S. Powersports Sector, Excited for Vegas AIMExpo

21 January 2023

DOST Bikes, a leader in the ebike sector, comes roaring into AIMExpo in Las Vegas with a National Sales Team in place, samples on the road, and full head of steam as it enters the U.S. Powersports sector for 2023.

High-performance electric bicycles are one of the most exciting new developments in this sector, providing Powersports dealers with a new type of 2-wheeled, powered vehicle to offer their customers. Ebikes are light enough to carry in a pickup or on an RV to go camping; they don’t require a drivers license; and they offer more accessibility to urban paths and trails that do not allow gas powered mopeds or scooters.

This new market is already massive in the U.S. with ebike sales outpacing even electric cars, doubling in the last 4 years to 400,000 units annually, and high growth rates expected for the next decade and beyond. Powersports dealers are uniquely positioned to sell and service this rapidly expanding category and create a completely new profit center for their business.

DOST Bikes CEO Sam Atakhanov explains why success hinges on Dealers choosing the right ebike for their customers, and why DOST is the perfect fit: “I’m an avid snowmobiler and I use ATV’s for hunting. Powersports guys like me expect a high-performance experience, and that’s why DOST is such a perfect fit. Our mid-drive motor provides 40% more torque than any other bike in its Class (up to 28 mph) and it’s the only one that offers both a throttle and pedal assist. Not having a throttle is an absolute deal-breaker.”

There are many more reasons DOST is the right fit for the Powersports sector:

  • Intelligent Design - DOST Bikes come fully-loaded including suspension fork, integrated lights, fenders, cargo racks and plus size tires for riding rail trails and gravel roads. Their DROP step-through frame makes it as easy and fun to ride as a scooter;
  • Class 1, 2 and 3 Compliant - All ebike models are easily set up to meet all Federal, State and Regional ebike regulations, including Class 3 (28 mph top speed);
  • Ultra-long Range (120 mi) - A unique Dual Battery System is available as an upgrade kit that doubles the range up to 120 miles on a single charge, eliminating “range anxiety”. DOST recently set the Guiness World Record for Longest Ebike Journey at over 7,000 miles using their Dual Battery Technology combined with high-efficiency mid-drive motor.
  • Well-Developed Infrastructure for Service and Warranty - DOST Offers a 2-year bumper-to-bumper warranty including electrical & mechanical components, video tech support, dedicated Dealer Web portal, dedicated Dealer support phone line and warehousing of replacement parts in Canada;
  • Long History of Award-Winning Excellence - DOST has been building electric bikes in Canada since 2014. They have sold thousands of custom-designed units across North America in nearly every state and province, earning Best in Class Awards from top 3rd party reviewers like Electric Bike Review.
  • Growing List of Ebike Accessories - DOST bikes offers a wide range of ebike accessories including waterproof saddle bags, trunk bags, alarm locks, fast chargers, suspension seat posts & more, making DOST an ideal “one-stop-shop” partner.
