Alpha Key Highlights

Leave the difficult decisions to us.

Self-adjusting hydraulic disc brakes and the Gates Carbon belt drive system make maintenance a breeze. No adjustments of chain lubricant required.
With no shifting required, controlling your Alpha is as easy as selecting the motor assistance level to adjust how hard you have to pedal. All you have to do is pedal.
No noisy clunky chains, just a whisper quiet ride. No chain grease, feel free to wear those white pants!

Every component, carefully chosen

No heavy batteries, overpowered motors, or clunky profiles. The Alpha was designed to perfectly balance performance, value, and looks.

Goodbye traditional chains.

  • Lasts 3x longer than a chain!
  • No grease, no grime.
  • Doesn't stretch over time
  • Whisper quiet and smooth as silk.
  • Maintenance free!

Hello Belts!

The battery is easily detachable from the bike with the twist of a key. Charge the battery from anywhere and leave the bike behind!

The Alpha comes with hydraulic disc brakes with 160mm rotors to ensure maximum stopping confidence on the road.

The Alpha comes fitted with cleverly thought-out mounting points for maximum versatility. Racks, fenders, baskets, boombox? No problem.

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!
