5 pedal assist levels

Pedal Assisted Fun

No throttle, no problem. Alpha keeps the bike in ebike with a pedal assisted drive system, meaning you still have to pedal. Choose from 5 asist levels. Keep it in 1 or 2 when cruising on the flats or punch it up to 4 or 5 when topping out the hills.

Selecting Your Size

Please refer to both rider height and stand over. To find Stand Over: Take your inseam measurement wearing shoes you are likely to ride in. As long as you've got around 1" of clearance over the top tube you'll likely be good to go! If you're on the cusp between sizes we generally recommend sizing up!

    Great bike!

    Bought an Alpha for the wife and am very impressed. Sporty-looking bike, not dorky, and solid as a rock. Reputable components, not cheap ones. Battery seems good as well. I'm a bike nerd with a whole fleet of high-end bikes and I think this is a real winner at a great price.

    Best bang for bucks

    2 months and 140 miles in and it does everything it needs to perfectly.

    Some initial issues with quality control where I was sent the wrong bike at first and the right one had leaky brakes, however the costumer service is frankly the best I’ve ever seen and all issues were fixed extremely quickly with no hassle. Their warranty is also excellent and gave me 60% off a replacement rear wheel when I crashed and broke the rear spoke, which is really more than I’d expect anywhere else.

    The bike itself is no frills, exactly what it needs to be. Hydraulic brakes are strong and stop well, belt drive is quiet and reliable. The motor is also plenty powerful and easily sustains 20mph on slight inclines. I average 20-25 miles of range with max pedal assist going 20mph on gentle hill, which is plenty for daily commute and charging at night back to full. Also importantly it looks good and is pretty stealthy for an e-bike, which is great in terms of likely hood to get stolen.

    Overall one of the best purchases I’ve ever made, such a nice luxury to avoid the bus, driving, or getting sweaty on a normal bike and I would 100% recommend for people with a commute shorter then 10 mile one way. Obviously the fit and finish isn’t as good as big brand name bikes, but it’s definitely worth having some ugly weld lines to save 100s of dollars compared to other equivalent spec e-bikes.
