INVEST IN AREA 13 EBIKES TODAY!
The electric bike market is projected to reach $52.36 billion by 2028, with a staggering 16% CAGR. (Source)
Revenue growth from 2019 to 2020 has spiked from $600,000 to over $4 million.
The CEO started the company with only $200 in capital and has grown the company to millions in sales in just a few years.
Kyle Chittock started the company with just $200 out of his own pocket and has transformed it into a 7 figure company in just a few short years. We firmly believe that with additional capital, we can continue the trajectory we’re on and be a household name in the electric bicycle industry. Our endeavor to make premium quality ebikes has been the keystone of our business model, and we believe it will continue being the force behind our growth.
Ebikes are becoming more common within every household. The challenge many face is ensuring their ebike will meet their needs for power, performance, proper fit, and price.
Due to the incredible growth the electric bike industry has experienced, there are an increasing number of options to choose from. This can result in a lackluster buying experience where the machine's capabilities were oversold and the consumer's needs were overlooked.
Simply put, Area 13 doesn’t need to make extravagant claims and over-the-top social media market campaigns because our ebikes do the talking for us. We cut through marketing hype and tell people what they’re really getting for their money. We believe in transparency and have a product we can be proud of.
Area 13 started out selling parts and pieces to make all types of electric bike brands better. Our knowledge and passion for ebikes naturally led us to start creating our own line of electric bikes. By focusing on performance, speed, power, and most of all, quality, we have developed a superior ebike that sells itself.
We generate the majority of our revenue through the sale of ebikes, however we also sell ebike parts. Our latest model, the Falcon, is a full suspension, carbon fiber EMTB with name brand components and retails for just under $5,000, making it a compelling option next to the big-brands, some of which cost twice as much for similar specs.
At Area 13, our focus will always be on the quality and performance of our ebikes. We ensure that every aspect of our products, from the design down to the components, are of the highest caliber to maximize its capabilities. This high standard of excellence was born out of a genuine passion for ebikes, which is the heart of our enterprise.
By educating our customers about ebikes and how they work first, we have developed a growing, loyal customer base. Not only do we interact with customers through our shop in California, but also we drive organic traffic through our strong social accounts. Youtube videos, electric bike specific podcast episodes, and outstanding overall social media presence has pedaled our success.
We know that we’ve made some bold claims about the quality of our products, but the proof is in our dramatic sales increase. From 2019 to 2020 revenues increased from $600,000 to over $4 million. Furthermore have the largest Youtube channel of any ebike brand globally, approaching nearly 100,000 subscribers.
Area 13 has the perfect recipe for success. We have high-quality, high-performing ebikes that are fairly priced, a passionate CEO who understands our growing industry, and a loyal following that has propelled us to early success. Ebikes are no longer a concept for the future; the technology is here. We have the know-how and products to gain a strong foothold in a booming market. Help Area 13 become the gold standard of ebikes and become a shareholder today.
Area 13 is an electric bicycle company that provides a balance of quality, performance, and price. The electric bicycle market is red hot. We believe the innovation of Area 13 gives the company an advantageous position in this rapidly growing market.

Investors will only receive a single bonus, which will be the highest bonus rate they are eligible for, with the exception of “audience-based” bonuses.
If a company offers an “audience-based” bonus, this bonus only will stack with any other bonus you are eligible for. An “audience-based” bonus is a bonus that is available to a qualified group of investors based on campaign-specific criteria - such as previous investors, existing customers, or Testing-the-Waters (TTW) reservation holders. An issuer can only offer a single audience-based bonus.
For example, a 10% audience-based bonus (i.e. prior investors) + a 10% OWNer’s bonus would receive an aggregate of 20% bonus shares.
Area 13 E-Bikes will offer 10% additional bonus shares for all investments that are committed by investors that are eligible for the StartEngine Crowdfunding Inc. OWNer's bonus.
This means eligible StartEngine shareholders will receive a 10% bonus for any shares they purchase in this offering. For example, if you buy 100 shares of Common Stock at $5/ share, you will receive 110 shares of Common Stock, meaning you'll own 110 shares for $500. Fractional shares will not be distributed and share bonuses will be determined by rounding down to the nearest whole share.
This 10% Bonus is only valid during the investor's eligibility period. Investors eligible for this bonus will also have priority if they are on a waitlist to invest and the company surpasses its maximum funding goal. They will have the first opportunity to invest should room in the offering become available if prior investments are canceled or fail.
Investors will only receive a single bonus, which will be the highest bonus rate they are eligible for.

The Blackbird is one of our best selling bikes. Our latest shipment has arrived to the US port and is being unloaded at our facility this week! This will put bikes in stock for immediate sale for the first time since May of 2020!
Production is well under way so we can increase quantities of Blackbird models sold in 2022. We have hundreds more lined up and ready for packaging overseas. Our hard work over the last 18 months of securing parts and pieces for higher volumes is finally paying off!
Youtube videos are the number 1 source of our traffic. We love creating and sharing education content about electric bikes! Check out our latest video here:
The pain at the pump has Americans feeling anxious about running errands, getting to work, and it’s FORCING US ALL to rethink our routines.
Gas Prices are the HIGHEST in US history with a national average of $4.31 a gallon as of 3/15/2022. (https://gasprices.aaa.com/)
Just 1 year ago, the average price of 1 gallon of gas was $2.96. (https://gasprices.aaa.com/)
Prices could soon soar even higher and that will absolutely keep us stuck right where we are.
By depending on just one form of transportation, such as a car - Americans will experience a greater negative impact on their household budget, commuting costs, family vacations, and the ability to get outside and have some fun.
By riding an ebike, you can experience some relief, while those that are relying on gasoline to get around will be scrambling to find other options as prices keep escalating.
In an already booming industry, investing in ebikes is a VERY SMART decision.
We all deserve to enjoy time with family and friends. We should be able to commute to work and run errands while getting exercise. We don’t need to be dependent on fossil fuels so we can have fun in our own neighborhood.
Join us in creating positive changes in our society.

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.
With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.
At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.
Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.
StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.
For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.
For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.
Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.
Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.
Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
