A comfortable ride and superior handling comes from proper weight placement. Strong, light wheels and a battery mounted under the rider giving you comfort and unmatched handling at cruising speed and around turns.
5 Level Pedal Assist System and Throttle Operation
The standard 5-speed system detects your pedal cadence and adds motor power up to your desired level of assist. There is no need to control a throttle, all electronics function at the push of a button. Riders can simply pedal, concentrate and enjoy the ride while sensing the motor performance.
Throttle is on-demand – Feel the power whenever and wherever you need it. With the twist of your wrist you can add power to any level of PAS or use it to coast down your favorite trail.
