Life was meant to be experienced together, so the Model 1 is designed from the ground up for an adult passenger. With a peak torque assist more than twice as strong as a Bosch mid-drive, our Launch Control™ throttle, step through frame, passenger footrests and a fully enclosed driveline and rear wheel, every aspect has been optimized to easily bring someone along.

Features

Bring a Friend or Two Little Ones

Life was meant to be experienced together, so the Model 1 is full of features that make carrying a passenger a breeze. The powerful motor assist, ‘boost’ throttle, and comfortable, controlled ride keeps both pilot and passengers happy.

Carry Everything

With up to 50 lbs of cargo carrying capacity cushioned by a real suspension, wearing a backpack is a thing of the past. Commuting with a laptop in professional clothes, grocery runs, trips to the hardware store, or even a rough road camping trip is easy.

Lock Stuff In It, Secure with Your App

Having convenient, secure, on board storage means running errands to multiple locations is simple and easy. Secure your bike with a PIN on your smartphone or the bike display, or lock the frame with provided lock points.

Use the Battery as a Portable Charge Station

The battery is one of the most expensive components in an ebike, so we make the most of it. Our lightweight, low profile battery with dual USB charging ports can be used to charge and power your devices on or off the bike.

Enjoy Unparalleled Ride Quality

We worked with Manitou to create our specially tuned full suspension system that soaks up bumps large and small, regardless of load and surface. Your passenger will especially appreciate the confident and smooth ride on poor surfaces.

Step Through Frame for Easy Entry 

Riders don’t have to lift a leg over the seat to get on and off, and our unique chain design keeps the chainring small, covered and out of the way of pantlegs and scarves, helping to keep you clean

Suspension ADJUSTS with the Touch of a Button

Usually found in high end luxury cars, our industry first self leveling system quickly matches the suspension performance to the total weight on the bicycle for optimal safety and comfort. Families and friends can share the same bike without compromise or complicated, time consuming setup.

Shine Bright and Be Seen

Integrated headlamp, tail light and brake light never have to recharged or remembered. The powerful headlamp dims automatically for approaching traffic and turn signals tell the world where you are going.

It’s Easier to Play Safe

Having a place to store helmets and riding gear when you are off the bike and means you don’t have to compromise convenience for safety
