City Pulse Step Thru

This month we have released the City Pulse Step Thru eBike, the perfect companion on your daily commute. The City Pulse Step Thru eBike offers pedal assist riding with its powerful Bafang 250W front hub motor and large capacity battery using Panasonic cells. This Step Thru version comes with an ultra low step-through frame, making for easy access on and off the bike.


First Track Productions

This month we took our X-Trail and Ares onto to the Lake Tahoe trails with First Track Productions in California where they captured loads of awesome photos and video. The X Trail is at home on singletrack trails and forest roots, and punches well above its weight. The Ares is a beautifully hydroformed Fat Bike offering high specs without a high price.

Lord Bike

We’d like to give a special shoutout to our Argentinian Distributors Lordbike this month for all the amazing content they have created for the Granite 2.0 since receiving their bikes earlier this year. In the last month, they have been on another awesome bikepacking adventure: The tour of the Pocho Mountains, in which they travelled 220km in two days, creating this cool video during the process! But enough about us talking about their adventures, Gustavo, who was our REID Rider of the month in May, writes amazing blogs on LordBike’s website about their adventures which we recommend you to read for a refreshing perspective (They are written in Spanish, however, if you right-hand click the page you can translate to your language).
