New for 2020: Introducing the F4 Trail
Pre-Order Now to Get it Before it Sells Out
The Trail is the best selling bike in our lineup. With hybrid tires good for on-road and off-road, lockable front suspension and a powerful mid-motor, it will power your adventures like no other electric bike.
- New Geometry - We've made more improvements on the already stellar geometry for better comfort and handling while riding
- New Battery - This battery is still hidden within the downtube but gives the bike a more aggressive look and tighter lines
- 4 Piston Hydraulic Disc Brakes - Adapted from the Trail Special Edition, these are now standard on the F4
- Shimano Deore 10 Speed Shifter - Now Standard
- Stay tuned for updated pictures and videos!
The F4 Trails are being finished now and will ship to our San Diego Warehouse for fulfillment soon. We expect pre-orders to begin shipping by March, just in time for the weather to warm up. Stay tuned for more updates.
*Note, we reserve the right to modify specs/design/graphics before shipment, esp if we believe it will make a better bike. (Don't worry, we won't downgrade motors/battery or pull any funny business) Shipping date is an estimate, we are working night and day to get this to you as soon as possible, but if anything comes up, we won't sacrifice product quality to rush it to you.

The SR Suntour XCR Spring Suspension is a suspension fork that offers magnesium lowers, nickel plated stanchions and options for air or coil springs. Intended for XC mountain cycling with 120 mm Travel
Don’t settle for cheap mechanical disc brakes. A powerful bike should have the most powerful brakes to keep your safety a priority. Hydraulic brakes are stronger, more reliable and can help you steer clear of danger when you need it most.
This 10 speed drivetrain lets the mid motor shine and apply it’s torque over 10 different gear ratios to maximize acceleration, hill climbing and top speed. The 11-36T cassette has a wide range and is built to last.
The M600 is the most advanced and powerful motor of it's kind on the market. Beautifically compact and packing a whopping 500W and 120Nm of torque, this workhorse is a serious performer. Using the bikes gears, it achieves optimum hill climbing, range, and speed.
Other bikes use toothpick sized skewers to keep the wheels on. This can save costs - but with a single failure point wheels can release while riding - a dangerous situation. Instead we invest in beefy thru-axles with redundant failure points. They’re over engineered to keep you safe and happy. The thickness of the thru-axles make them more durable and provide a more stable ride at all speeds.
We've upgraded our batteries from 36V to 48V giving you even more range and power! We sourced the highest capacity cells in the world, the same ones used in the Tesla Model S for this. Charging time is 2 hours for the 499 watt hours battery, and 2.5 hours for the 672 watt hours battery.
Like a cockpit for your bike, see how fast you're going, how far you've ridden, average speed and battery life. Plug in a USB cable into the USB port, turn the LCD screen on and you can charge your phone on the go.
Don’t want to pedal? Responsive throttle allows the bike to be powered without pedalling.

The California StandardElectric Bicycles are defined by the California Vehicle Code.
New legislation became effective in January 2016. The current regulations define an “electric bicycle” as: a bicycle equipped with fully operable pedals and an electric motor of less than 750 watts, separated into three classes:
1. A "class 1 electric bicycle,” or “low-speed pedal-assisted electric bicycle,” is a bicycle equipped with a motor that provides assistance only when the rider is pedaling, and that ceases to provide assistance when the bicycle reaches the speed of 20 miles per hour.
2. A "class 2 electric bicycle,” or “low-speed throttle-assisted electric bicycle,” is a bicycle equipped with a motor that may be used exclusively to propel the bicycle, and that is not capable of providing assistance when the bicycle reaches the speed of 20 miles per hour.
3. A "class 3 electric bicycle,” or “speed pedal-assisted electric bicycle,” is a bicycle equipped with a motor that provides assistance only when the rider is pedaling, (no throttle) and that ceases to provide assistance when the bicycle reaches the speed of 28 miles per hour and equipped with a speedometer.
Local government ordinances are allowed to permit or ban any class of electric bicycles on dedicated bicycle paths and trails, with Class 1 & 2 permitted, and Class 3 banned, by default
All our bikes come as standard with a 28mph motor limit making them Class 3. Adding a throttle to the standard bikes will make them illegal for public use in every state. We can configure bikes to comply with class 1, 2 or 3 though. Please send us an email for more details.
Laws vary in different states / countries. Please check your local regulations. Here is a good resource of information in the US: http://peopleforbikes.org/our-work/e-bikes/policies-and-laws/
