To carry you – and your passengers – with style, comfort, and safety.
For more than one
We all have people (and stuff) we share our lives with. That's why we designed the Model 1 to carry an adult passenger, or two children with the comfort and safety that only a full suspension can give.
For where you live
Effortlessly useful in your life, no matter where you ride. The full fenders, recessed chain line, and enclosed rear wheel keep you clean and dry, and step through design allows easy entry and exit regardless of clothing, age or fitness level.
Built for the future
Our frame and components are designed to last, with one of the longest warranties in the business. Electronics and batteries are upgradeable over time, and we can even deliver software updates.
