Rob Daniels wasn’t looking for a new product venture when he took a routine business trip to China in 2016 and stumbled on a rough prototype for a folding electric bicycle.
“The design was so unique and eye-catching,” he recalls. The bike’s original design, a small frame consisting largely of two circles hinged in the center, weighed in at 24 pounds, making it much lighter than most electric-powered bikes. The best part: It folded so neatly it could be packed up in a suitcase.
“The boating industry was so ripe for it, and there was a big opportunity with pilots, especially those who are sensitive about adding weight on a small plane,” explains Daniels.
He returned home to Tampa and immediately began to innovate and improve on the original design until it was the most portable electric-powered bike on the market. He called his new company Jupiter Bike, named for the product’s space-age design.
