Basket + Plastic = Plasket™
If you know Electra, you know that we were born and raised at the beach and the ocean is our backyard. That’s why we’re super excited to introduce our newest product that helps keep our beaches and ocean clean. Meet the Electra Plasket™. It’s a bike basket made using one pound of reclaimed ocean plastic. Basket + Plastic = Plasket. Clever, eh?
#ElectraLove: Rich the Ironman
Settle in for this #ElectraLove story because you don’t want to miss it. It all started when we received an email from a woman named Kimberly. She was reaching out because her friend, Rich, was about to participate in an Ironman on an Electra.

May is for celebrating!
May is a great month for a number of reasons. First of all, April showers bring May flowers. Second, it’s widely acceptable to over do it with tacos on Cinco De Mayo. For all the grill masters out there, get your aprons and spatulas ready for this year’s debut at the Memorial Day BBQ. To all the hot dog lovers, this is your time to shine. AND most importantly, May is National Bike Month.
The Name Game: Electra Hour

Hats off to you, Mother Earth!
Growing up we learn about the solar system, shooting stars, black holes and the possibility of life in outer space. While all that stuff is pretty darn cool, April 22nd is a day to take a step back and acknowledge that Mother Earth is just as amazing as the stars above us. She gives life to everything from the birds and the bees to the palm trees and plankton.
