Lightweight, simple and beautiful

At 44lbs, Alpha is one of the lightest ebikes around. From frame to belt, battery to motor, we select high-quality components to keep the overall weight down, making an ebike that rides like a regular bike…nimble and rewarding to ride no matter what level of pedal assist you choose!

Rideability & Control

Geometry rules!

Alpha II 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.

Gates® Carbon Belt Drive

Easy does it.

The Alpha II features carbon belt drive which lasts 4x longer than chains and requires no maintenance! Never needs oil, no chain stains, delivering smooth, quiet power to the pedals for thousands of miles!

Shimano Hydraulic Disc Brakes

Stop on a dime.

160mm rotors provide reliable stopping in all weather conditions and set the standard for easy service when it comes time to replace pads or perform other maintenance.

Find your perfect fit

We recommend you compare your inseam measurement, taken wearing shoes you are likely to ride in, to the stand-over height of our various models. 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!

Components & Specs

Component specs for our fellow nerds:

Battery System (UL7221 Certified)

375Wh removable battery provides 20 to 45 miles of range, depending on terrain, assist level, and other factors.

Gates Sidetrack Belt Drive

Carbon reinforced belts from Gates® last longer than chains, operate quietly, and don't require grease -- no more unintentional chainring tattoos!

Rear Hub Motor

Our rear hub motor gives you 350 watts (550w max) of power and 45 Nm of torque.

Controller Display

The D20 on-board display provides easy to read information, while the left-side remote allows you to change settings without taking your hands off the bars.


Vvolt custom aluminum stepthrough frame and fork fit with front and rear mounts for racks and fenders.

360° Lighting System

Integrated front and rear lighting system, plus reflective graphics deliver 360º visibility all year round.

Class 1 or Class 2 Enabled

Equipped with an easily removable throttle, Alpha II can be configured as Class I or 2 depending on whether or not the throttle is attached.

We programmed the throttle to provide "safe-speed" 80% power when applied. That's still 430 watts!


At 44lbs, you'll find Alpha is one of the lightest ebikes around.

Axles/ Dropouts

A two-piece adjustable rear dropout makes for easy rear wheel removal. The 15x110 front thru-axle provides secure and easy front wheel attachment.


Puncture-resistant 27.5x2.4” tires w/ reflective sidewalls
