A Good Bike

Alpha was designed for an upright fit that works great for quick rides around town as well as longer rides. It strikes a balance between a Dutch bike, and a sporty hybrid that’s feels rewarding to most riders.

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!

    Elegant simplicity

    The Alpha is quite quiet and powerful enough to get me up all the hills I encounter.

    I appreciate it's simplicity, quality and lower maintenance. It would make a great bike even without the electric motor assist.

    Love this bike.

    My husband bought this for me even though I did not want it. I was very anti-electric bike. Now that I’ve ridden it several times, I LOVE it. I was worried that I would not get exercise on the ebike. Not true. I get as much of a workout on the ebike as I do on my trek. The motor is great if I’m outrunning a storm or I’ve pushed too hard and am worried about making it home. This is a very comfortable, very well built bike. The quality of this bike compared to other more expensive bikes is outstanding.
