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 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
  • Efficient and long-lasting batteries
  • Small and compact charger with options to fit the rider’s needs

Classic Design

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
