The Civia Parkway is the perfect ebike for experiencing the city. The there-when-you-need-it boost from Bosch’s ultra-reliable electric motor makes hills a breeze, while easy-to-use components celebrate the elegance of an uncomplicated bicycle. From no sweat crosstown commutes, to fitness rides, the Parkway is an exciting and fun option for getting around.
Parkway Step-Thru Electric Bike
Nimble and Quick
The Parkway is designed for a spirited ride, with handling intended for fitness and fun.
- Less Weight: Even though it’s electric, they’ll still appreciate the feeling of a light ride
- Pedal Fast or Slow: With the right gearing range,quick spins or casual rides are within reach
- Easy on / off: A lighter bike with a detachable battery means the Parkway can easily be placed on a rear car rack
Bosch Active Line Design
- The lightweight and quiet Active Line motor won’t deter from the ride experience
- Easy and gentle acceleration with minimum pedal resistance and four levels of support from Eco to Turbo
- A clean and uncluttered look with a 25% smaller drive unit
- Compact, clear, and neatly organized controls on the Purion controller
- Efficient and long-lasting PowerPack 400 frame battery
- Small and compact 2 Amp charger with options to fit the rider’s needs
We intentionally made the Parkway a bicycle first, and an electric bike second.
- Clean and Simple: the handlebar is absent of the clutter typically associated with eBikes
- Pedestrian Utility: Simple touches such as Schrader valve tubes for gas station fill-ups won’t leave the rider stranded without a valve adapter
- Stand up Proud: eBikes weigh more than a traditional bicycle, so the kickstand is built strong, but without that over-built industrial look
