Chicago Cubs go electric with Swagtron deal

Major League Baseball franchise the Chicago Cubs has agreed a new partnership with electric rideables manufacturer Swagtron.

The company will serve as the team’s official electric bike, scooter, skateboard and hoverboard for the 2019 season.

The Cubs’ free bike valet service at its Wrigley Field ballpark will include an official Swagtron electric bike and scooter charging station in 2019. In addition, a variety of Swagtron products will be available for purchase at official Cubs stores.

Swagtron products available throughout the season bearing the official Cubs designation include the Swagger 5 Elite Folding Electric Scooter, the EB5 Folding Electric Bike and the Swagcycle Pro Compact Electric Bike.

Swagtron said it will roll out Cubs content, promotions and events throughout 2019 that will be unlike anything in the e-rideables industry.
