At the opening Wednesday of Interbike, the nation's largest bicycle trade show, Schwinn will debut the Tailwind, which uses new battery technology from Toshiba Corp. to get about 30 miles (depending the terrain and on how hard you peddle) on a 30-minute charge. That's a drastic reduction in charge time compared with what was previously available.


- 38 lbs
- 3000 charges on Toshiba SCIV battery
- 30 min charge time (7 min in "industrial settings")
- Nexus 8 speed hub
- 700c wheels
- 180 watts continuous or 250 watts peak
- 15 mph
- $3200 USD
